I do not have so many experiences to date. However, the care of this small species is rather similar to Euprepiophis mandarinus. Because of its distribution in high mountain areas it is necessary to provide the snakes temperatures between 20 and 27 degrees Celsius.

Temperature: 18-27°C (mean day temperature = 23°C).

Humidity: medium moist.

Food: small mice.

Hibernation: 2-3 month with reduced light and temperatures of 12-15°C.
