A large attractive rat snake, native to Taiwan. They are large active species that can be aggressive but are usually one of the tamer beauty snakes. They are relatively easy to keep, requiring a hot spot of around 28-30C and relatively high humidity at around 50 to 60% but are a hardy species and can tolerate a range of levels making them well suited for a novice or experienced keeper. They can attain quite a size with recorded lengths of 270cm (9 foot); but 180 to 220cm is the norm.
