    Thanks guys.

    I actually missed posting part one of the feed fest.


    These ended up pretty clear.



    And for the cage enthusiast, another updated picture of the jungle.

    I love your critters and enclosures Gio. I need to add some branches and lava lamps to my setups.

    Hey bud,

    I really hope you can keep Phyllis and enjoy the retic experience. I talked to a very experienced retic buddy and he says some just push and there isn't much you can do.

    I ended up being lucky, at least so far with Wallace. I certainly would not keep more than one of these. I love having him, but I'm like you are. I enjoy the relaxation and easy handling of my boa and coastal carpet.

    If Wallace handled a bit better I'd be thrilled.

    He produces minimal waste. He's like the carpet though he eats more frequently, not a lot more often but a little bit.

    His size is still increasing but most of it is girth. I could deal with another foot, but really don't want and never did want a true giant.

    As of now the cage is perfect, he is just the right size. A much larger animal would really limit what I could do with my setups.

    Keep Philly if you can, and look at a nice, Brisbane locality coastal to fill the other cage.

    When I'm not working, and the house is quiet, I sit down there with a beer (soda works too if you don't drink) and chill out. A lot of the time I key up some rainforest sounds on the MAC and sit in my rocking chair and relax.

    Even my wife will hang for a bit when I do the lights up like that.!!

    Zig, I think I could see you having an exciting room with your lineup!

    The absolute most arboreal snake in the collection.

    These are from last night. It was not a feeding night or anything special, just a regular night of cruising.



    I love watching him.

    Retics are great. They’re like giant ratsnakes, even when they get big they’re just always on the move and wanting to climb. And they’re exceptionally good at it.

    Wallace is coming along quite nicely!

    Good to see you popping in!

    I agree they are like the colubrid of the boas and pythons.

    I want to hear the scrub comparison.

    I’ll bet your guy will be highly entertaining.

    Re: Python Reticulatus Wallace Progression!

    @ Gio- I'll say the scrub is my most intriguing critter. He's very alert and almost always looks poised to strike, which keeps me alert, but he's really as cool as a fan. I love to handle him. He's active but not flighty and he's pretty calm. He's only tagged me once and musked me twice when he first arrived but nothing since. He's in a QT tub for now but I can't wait to give him more space as he grows. He'll end up in an 8x2x2 or 8x2x4 if I can. He perches most nights and hides most days so I can see him spending time in the trees and on the ground. I'll definitely add an arboreal hide to his adult enclosure. Oh, and of course HE LOVES FOOD!
    I LOVE Wallace, he and Jewel are two of my forum faves, and I knew if I ever got a retic it would be a tiger or GC. I'll admit I was a little intimidated by their teeth and potential ferocity so I went with a slightly less monstrous option . The pee and poop stories didn't help either. I'm content though. I love seeing the beauty and diversity of all these awesone critters.
