Elaphe cantoris is a large ratsnake very rarely seen, although many specimens have been collected in the past, there are very few in captivity today.|
Very little is known about this snake, but it appears to be very similar in body shape and color pattern to E. moellendorffi.
E. cantoris seems to be a montane species, being collected at higher elevations. 10 eggs were found in a wild caught specimen, and a friend working with this species had a female lay six eggs.
We hope to learn more about this species in the near future.
