    I can never capture her when she is in the perfect perching pose, she is too curious about what I am doing!
    Simply one of the most interesting species of snake out there IMO.

    You are in a great position to pass along knowledge and understanding of this species as a captive pet.

    I personally enjoy every post you put up.

    Thank you! I agree, they are incredibly interesting and show much more intelligence than any other species I have worked with. They deserve a lot of respect.
    This is Tali in the room that will one day be converted in to her adult cage. She still has a lot of growing to do!

    How long do you suspect the snake is?
    I can't remember if your animal is older or younger than my June 1, 2016 retic or not.

    A couple of us with newer SD x dwarf retics are seeing some rapid growth. I think we all have over 5 footers now.

    I wish I could study some of the similarities and differences of these two species as far as activity levels, arboreal and terrestrial habits, and other behaviors.

    I would guess around five feet or so, her sheds average around 6 1/2 feet so I guess about a foot and a half of stretch. I'll see if I can use one of those online tools to measure her at some point.
    I don't have an exact date on her, but when she arrived I think she was about 8-10 months old. I've had her about six months, so around a year and four months I'd say?
    I also got a few pictures while trying to see if I could guess her length

    That head scalation is just dynamite!

    She seems to be growing at the rate of my SD x dwarf retic!
