Chinese Beauty Snake
Many hobbyists will be familiar with the Taiwan Beauty Snake (Orthriophis taeniurus friesi,
a subspecies that has become popular in collections over the last decade. The Chinese Beauty Snake is one of the smaller Beauty Snake subspecies, often only attaining an adult length of between four and five feet. Its popularity in the hobby is now increasing because of the morphs that are slowly becoming available to keepers worldwide. These however are sometimes mistakenly labelled as Taiwan Beauty Snakes, as this is the subspecies that hobbyists are most familiar with; to the best of our knowledge there are no Taiwan Beauty Snake morphs.
