 Hi  All,
 
 I  came  across  this  in  another  forum.....Erpeton  tentaculatum  (Tentacle  Water  Snake)  ...It  is  a  rear  fanged  aquatic  snake,  it  is  venomous  but  only  dangerous  to  snails  and  fish!  (Only  eats  larger  fish)  in  a  planted  tank!
 
 Has  anyone  dared  to  try  this  in  India......Would  love  to  see  a  tank  like  that  ....but  i'm  sure  i'll  not  have  one.........
 
 Thx
 Ajith

 I  have  been  reading  up  on  these  guys  on  the  net  for  some  time.
 
 From  what  there  is  to  read  on  the  net  these  are  not  the  easiest  of  snakes.  Apparently  the  people  with  some  experience  in  keeping  this  snake  alive  are  the  ones  that  keep  pet  snakes  not  aquarists  -  most  of  the  posts  in  forums  and  almost  all  the  write-ups  on  this  animal  come  from  herp  fanatics  not  aquarists.
 
 Maybe  you  can  move  from  easy  to  keep  snakes  on  to  this  as  you  gain  some  experience.  I  doubt  if  any  among  the  IAH  members  has  any  experience  with  this  particular  species.  In  addition  I  think  there  is  a  legal  aspect  to  consider  too  when  it  comes  to  snakes  -  just  as  in  turtles.
 
 Snakes  also  have  very  special  requirements.  It  is  not  enough  just  to  have  a  well  planted  aquarium.  Live  food,  basking  lights,  skin  sheddings,  water  quality  and  most  importantly  all  snakes  (and  this  one  in  particular)  have  a  susceptibility  to  invasive  fungal  infections  -  often  fatal.
 
 All  said,  it  IS  a  rather  interesting  animal.

 PS:  the  article  says  these  animals  are  great  pets.  Sure  they  are...  for  the  guys  who  have  the  know  how.
