Rat Snakes of the Genus Zamenis: Husbandry and Breeding
Stefan Moeller (Leipzig)
Others are fascinated by their inimitable elegance and beauty and like the idea of keeping more or less "local" snakes that can be kept in an outdoor enclosure with a bit of work and phantasy. Who ever has seen for example a Zamenis longissimus (Aesculapian Snake, Symbol of doctors and pharmacy, named to honour Asklepios, the Greek god of medicine) moving around in the wild, must love these animals. Captive bred specimens don't make problems if some basic rules are considered.
On of them is Stefan Moeller from Leipzig, who will share his knowledge about captive care and breeding with the audience at the Breeders' Expo. He keeps all species of different morphs and has regular captive-bred hatchlings available. As a photographer with high standards he will support his lecture with high-quality pictures. Above all Stefan maintains a well made and informative web site about his animals.
