    Re: Anaconda Awesomeness

    Wow they are so beautiful. I can't imagine owning one though, where do you keep it?! In my personal opinion, I think the biggest of reptiles should be left in the wild so they can have needed space, unless you can provide them with a room. Still gorgeous though.

    I'm fascinated by all snakes...especially the giant's. I think the biggest I'd own is a super dwarf retic though.

    We own 55 retics and 40 anacondas plus various other species. 120 snakes in all.

    You'd be surprised how little room they actually require for housing. People think they need an entire room, when the reality is many keepers have done this, and found they curl up into the smallest corner and don't move.

    We house them in moderate appropriate sized enclosures, and allow them time to explore an stretch either outdoors, or in the house when the weather is too cold. They do quite well with this time to stretch and interact and seem very content in their enclosures in between.

    It really is mind blowing to walk into our snake room and get to play with all the big ones. Makes you appreciate life everyday.

    Re: Anaconda Awesomeness

    I just don't see how humans can provide their needs. Food size needs to be huge, and they need more than a room. Especially anacondas, because they like to swim a lot. I personally find it unfair to keep these beautiful monsters in captivity, but what you do is your business.

    Re: Anaconda Awesomeness



    Think we've got "huge" food items covered lol.

    I feed around 150lbs of prey items a week. My rat bill per month alone is more than most people's mortgage. We have probably $25,000 in caging.

    Ours don't just survive, they thrive, but they don't ever have to worry about starvation, predation, disease, or natural disasters like they would in the wild.

    They were born in captivity and captivity is all they know. They live a very posh life.
