Just be ready as he grows to house him. And that will be a two person rule snake. I don't know for sure what they are banding, but a guess would be berm, rocks, retick...

They can be gentle giants unless you smell like food! That's why the two-person rule is good. One day you will forget to wash your hands after touching a rodent or even just your dinner, and your gentle anaconda might decide he can't wait another day to have a rabbit. Please be SMART and safe when handling large snakes. Smile And please provide an adequately large and secure cage!

P.S. My friend was feeding her red-tailed boa and the boa missed and struck her arm instead. It wrapped her arm and if her husband hadn't been there, she would have had a great problem trying to get it off. I have heard vinegar spray will help them release you, but still...better safe than sorry, for both you and your animal.

Ooo mouth wash, that's a good one. Very Happy Does it have to have alcohol in it? I would think so. Act just has fluoride...so gentle. Teehee.

What do you do for caging, small is easy but large is something else.
