Welcome to AC Snakes 


My name is Charlotte Wilford and my hobby is collecting, keeping and breeding various species of Ratsnakes, Amazon Tree Boas and Hognose.  I aspire to learn as much as possible about their care requirements and behaviour to enable them to thrive in captivity with the ultimate goal of breeding to produce the highest quality examples of each of those species.

I aim to be as open and transparent as possible in all areas of this website including my collection and breeding plans and of course endeavour to pass on everything that I learn to anyone with a keen interest in these species.

Through the course of breeding to refine my own collection I will occasionally have surplus offspring for sale to other enthusiasts. 

Questions are always welcome and advice is free so please do not hesitate to get in touch.  Please bear in mind though that this is my hobby and I have a large collection which means my spare time is limited and I cannot always reply as quickly as I would like to so please be patient.  Recently my personal circumstances have meant I have had to cut down my collection considerably and no longer keep rosy boas or house snakes but am still on hand to offer advise so please do not hesitate to ask.

Thank you for taking the time to peruse my website, hope you will enjoy your stay and visit again soon.
