POB has a few snakes we are looking to find good homes for. Two of them–these beautiful Cape House Snakes–are estimated to be 6 months old.

These snakes are very handleable with our POB staff and eats frozen-thawed rodents.

These snakes are medium to dark brown, with mother of pearl bellies, and two light stripes on either side of their heads. They are also very iridescent with their smooth scales giving off an oily sheen in certain light.

We have two Cape House Snakes available.

Cape House Snake #1  Cape House Snake #2

We are ideally looking for people who have had prior snake experience or have done thorough research on the reptile/amphibian they wish to purchase. If you need more information we would be glad to assist you over the phone or via email.

Feel free to send any inquires to or call the store at 503-282-5824 and ask for the Animal Care department.
