Snake help and advice

Fun, rewarding and interesting pets

Snakes offer you a different type of pet. They come in such a vast range of sizes and colourings, from tiny burrowing Sand Boas to great big Reticulated Pythons, each with their own unique personality to keep you entertained. You can find a wide selection of snakes at Swell Reptiles, including Corn Snakes, Boas and Pythons.

What are Snakes?

Known for their lack of limbs and slithering movement, Snakes, also called ‘Serpents’ and Serpentes, are found in every environment on Earth. There are Snakes of every size, colour and disposition, although the one thing they have in common is their ability to make striking and lovable pets. If you’re interested in adopting a Snake, you must come to our store where we’ll ask to see some images of the enclosure the Snake will be kept in and interview you before selling it. We reserve the right to refuse the sale of a Snake to anyone we feel is ill-prepared to care for it.

Why should I buy a Snake?

Snakes can be incredibly warm and lovable pets, displaying the companionship offered by many dogs and cats. Some are also quite intelligent and often display incredible colourings, often making them quite popular with family and friends. The lifespan of a Snake can vary due to size and gender, from as little as 5 all the way up to 25 years old - although some Anacondas have surpassed even that. The cost of keeping a Snake can be quite low but tends to increase with the size of the Snake.

What are the main types of snakes?

Our Snakes can be divided into six different types; Boas, Corn snakes, Hognose Snakes, Milk and King Snakes, other snakes and Pythons. Boas are non-venomous snakes famous for being able to constrict their prey. Corn Snakes are smaller snakes found in America that come in a wide variety of colours. Hognose snakes are quirky Snakes with upturned noses that are famous for their ability to ‘play dead’. Milk and King snakes are similar in size to corn snakes and come in a wide variety of colourations and patterns. Other snakes include many smaller groups of snakes like Rat snakes and Ladder snakes. Finally, Pythons are generally larger non-venomous snakes that come from Africa, Asia and Australia.

What should I look for when purchasing a Snake?

Choosing the right Snake for you can be difficult. We recommend really thinking about what you want from your Snake and what you can accommodate both within your home and financially. Research is key here so don’t be afraid to go on a bit of a Google dive or even pick up a book or two to help you out.
