I have a 17 year old Sinaloan milk snake. Been a good buddy of mine all his life, and although he has cataracts, he still is going strong.

Also, have an albino Sonoran gopher snake that is most likely 14-15, as he was a large adult when I purchased him in 2000.

update on texas rat snake

I was thinking about my corn snake who is now 20 y.o and saw I had posted about our Texas rat snake. Sadly he died when he was 32 y.o. Anyone have updates on their old snakes? I like old snakes.

A quick story. Our rat snake was terrified of rats (he was wild caught and we think he had a bad run in when he was young with one) when he turned 27 or so he either forgot or didn't know what he was eating because he started eating them again .

Autumn the first boa I posted about lived to be 28
Lemondrop the second boa lived to be 17
Sadly both had to be euthanized (unrelated issues).
Lemondrop's littermate brother is still here with me, so he'll be 22 in 2020.
I have another unrelated boa that will also be 22 this coming year.

My corn snake will be 19, raised her from a hatchling.

I still have my very first snake , a Kenyan sand boa named Huggy . I got him a week after he was born . I was 7 years old and I am 31 years old now so that puts him a bit over 23 years old. He still pounds mice and as healthy as ever. I use him to help people who are afraid of snakes , he is so gentle and kind of like a big worm. My nephew's adore him and so do I.

Just had my first "natural" death (i.e., no obvious cause, just found dead) of a Fiji Boa Candoia bibroni at 16 years.

Four others at least the same age still going strong.

There's not a lot of information about the expected life span of this species, so anyone with related species, please let me know how long your oldest have lived.

I had a Western Diamondback that lived to 36. He fed eagerly on ft rats right up to the end, when his health suddenly declined and he passed. He was one of my favorite snakes, I'd had him for so many years. He was WC as a baby.
