File Snake (Acrochordus arafurae)

Welcome to, the site where I dump my notes in an attempt to learn about, understand, document and hopefully help to educate others as I go, (be it about the snake or my own stupidity pertaining to), on the care and husbandry of Arochordus arafurae, or, for those like me that trip over technical names designed to keep the uninformed blissfully confused, the Arafura Filesnake. Unless specifically mentioned otherwise, all details and information mentioned by me on these pages are of my own learning and experience, therefore, I welcome any and all input from those with more knowledge of this snake, to correct me where needed.
