Your Snake Information Resource


Nia is a female Mangrove snake we purchased in Jan 2003.  She had a cold when we got her, but she responded to treatment quickly and soon got over it.  She's a semi-venomous rear-fanged snake so bites from her are not all that much fun, but not a real problem.  Her nose is rubbed raw and we're working on trying to help her heal that.  We're not sure how old she is, but we're guessing a year or so.  She's about 3 feet long and should grow to somewhere between 6 and 8 feet.  Mangrove snakes are native to Malaysia, Sumatra, and East Bengal where they like to hang out in the Mangrove swamps.  They are also known as Yellow-Ringed Cat Snakes, because of their cat-like pupils.

Nia is our sexy SnakesOnline mascot - her picture graces coffee cups, hats, aprons, water bottles and all sorts of great stuff in our online store.
