Return to Rescue Animals

Under Quarantine…

Due to an outbreak of Reptarenavirus in our quarantine space, Pickit is currently unavailable.

Pickit is believed to be a young chequered garter snake. He was named by the rescue team after being found in a garden of a lock shop in Madeley. After his owner did not come forward, Pickit became a rescue intake on 17th August 2022.

Their previous enclosure is unknown, but their finder contained them in a recycling box until we collected them.

Pickit had various wounds along their body and tail (both old and new) from unknown causes. He was taken to the vets and given a course of antibiotics to fight infection. He is friendly to handle but a little stressed from his experience so can be feisty.

An adorable little fighter!

Care Requirements:

Pickit will need a vivarium that is a minimum of 3×1.5×1.5ft in size. He’ll require an overhead basking bulb on a dimming thermostat, set to 30C on the warm end, facilitating a drop to around 22C on the cool end of the enclosure. A 2-5% UVB system should also be used. These should be on for 10-12 hours a day. Pickit will need a loose substrate and lots of decor to help him feel safe. He should be fed a small pinkie once a week.
