    get a texas coral snake. you don't need tank full of water to care of them. just a water bowl will do fine. they do like to hide in leaves, wood, and mulch. they're a nocturnal species and closely related to cobras. they also like to eat other snakes. they are highly toxic and should be handled with care. don't forget red and yellow killed a fellow

    So sad that he died because his habitat was NOT properly set up. Not even a wet soily area for him to rest on just some log. Dirty stagnant water with crusty ass leaves lol, at least you tried but you didn’t properly research the habitat and animal if we wanna be real about it. There’s several tests you need to run on that water for it to be perfect for the snake. And a whole different bio set-up.

  • Nozdormu1982

    Reach out to some aquarium channels and brainstorm about a future setup. As much as this is about handling and keeping snakes. In this case it is more about the aquarium setup.

    I am so late in commenting on this video. I've been behind on watching UZload lol. I'm not sure what research has been done on why these snakes cannot be kept in captivity. So forgive me, I'm not educated on snakes which is why I love your channel, I learn about them through your videos. Anyway, I have a hunch it is the water quality that is the problem. Such as specific minerals and/or bacteria that may be needed to keep them alive. Maybe that's something to look into!

    I am amateur at best so I couldn’t say for sure, but aren’t are coral snakes red pattern attached to the yellow and not black areas? I was always taught that’s how to identify the poisonous corals from the false ones. Red against black, poison does lack, red against yellow kills the fellow...

    Hi Chandler, first of all sorry for your loss. Please can you describe the banding's of this snake as I always thought red next to yellow kills a fellow... red next to black you're ok jack... Trying to find a coral snake on google images with red next to black

  • jordan strub

    This sucks, sorry bro. Didn't know about the front fangs!?!?? Or that the sequence of the color bands differs from our Corals in the states. Are the native coral snake front fanged too?

  • Joseph Archambault
    Joseph Archambault

    I am obviously a novice yet looking at his pattern isn’t it an abnormal pattern for a coral snake? I always thought Red Touch Black...friend of jack; red touch yellow...kill a fellow! Is this a normal type pattern here? Truly I’m curious?!?!? None the less, sorry for your loss Chandler. 😢

  • Rossco

    Shoving an air line and heater in a tank is not a specialist setup. It's exactly what every keeper who has unsuccessfully kept this species will have done as a bare minimum. I get that you have an excess of hubris but surely even you can see that repeating that cycle of thinking was only going to end one way?!

  • Don P

    So did Carl not have like a land space like I know he's like by creeks and stuff but like shouldn't he have have like a bigger enclosure where there's like land and then like a creek I mean was he just like suspended above water basically on a branch I know a mangrove snake would probably do good in that but shouldn't he had like land I seen those before like on UZload in the wild and they were like on land by a creek you know I don't know what I'm talking about but it just seems like they should have had some land and a creek not like suspended above and trees like a mangrove snake I didn't think they really climb trees that's just my two cents but it seems awfully weird for him to not have like land and then a water area I just wouldn't think that would be good for that snake.....?

    Wenn man keine Ahnung vom Wasser hat sollte man es lassen sein. Erstens Wasserwerte und zweitens das Laub und alles was drin war gibt alles Ammonium ab. Bzw. andere Gifte wie Nitrat/Nitrit und dann noch die Frösche die alles abgeben über die Haut l2 handle sry mag deinen Channel aber das war verantwortungslos.

    I see quite a few people say that Carl wasn’t a coral snake since “red touch back friend of jack, red touch yellow kill a fellow” and I just want to say please don’t rely on that! It only works on a few species, all US iirc.

  • Toni Broad

    Can I ask a potentially stupid question? Wgars the difference between king snakes and coral snakes? I always thought coral snakes had blaack heads and "yellow on red" patterns Meanwhile kings had red heads and "red on black". Can someone elaborate? So, I know this is an Aqua coral snake, but kings and aquatic corals kinda look the same to me. And the old "friend of jack/dead fellow" saying seems to not include these fellas

    Its most likely a water quality issue that killed this little cutie. Chandler used tank water from an established tank but the only issue with that is that the beneficial bacteria is mostly on the filter media in that tank, not the water column. I really hope you see this comment Chandler, try getting a large sump type filter with the out and in pipes on opposite ends to replicate a very slow creek water movement, give the tank 6 weeks to properly cycle with a harty animal like the snapping turtle and check water parameters to make sure the nitrogen and ammonia cycle is done and also if you look at pics online these guys like to get out and curl up on dry muddy/mulchy soil at times so maybe have a floating island he can do that on and I bet these things plus a meal right after getting him there in the tank and he'd thrive and you'd be the 1st person to keep one alive

    • Don P
      Don P

      Yeah he needed some more land I think that enclosure was just too small to get his habitat to what he needs to be able to thrive he needed a tank like three times the size of that weather could be like a creek and a creek bed and land and fish and everything I think I was too small of a set up and he was just pretty much jammed up in the water the whole time and then at the water quality was an issue on top of him constantly being in the water I could see that overall being a big problem I definitely needed like a tank 5 times the size of that lengthwise or he could have put everything in their land and all that to replicate a better habitat I don't think they just set on a stick in the Water by a creek and a tank surely he would have seen that as being an issue like the snake needs like land and a hide and stuff I'm pretty sure that Carl never ate right I don't see him eating in those conditions or I don't know I just the whole setup doesn't seem right to me obviously LOL that sucks Bubba

    Sorry for your loss of such a beautiful creature. But I can’t believe no one else that I’ve seen has hasn’t noticed one thing. It’s not a coral snake. The black and yellows bands are touching. Remember red and black friend of jack , red and yellow kill a fellow.
