    Iím on that same boat...love them all. lol There are a lot of species that I admire, and some that Iíve owned in the past and wish I hadnít given up. These days Iím sticking with smaller species. I no longer have the backup of my other half since losing him in April, and not a lot of friends whoíll lend a hand with my creepy critters. That said, Iíve expanded my BP collection this year and gotten some long desired morphs from my wish list, so itís hardly a hardship.

    Re: 2018 Yellow Progression

    Iíve heard males between 6-9 is pretty normal, and the breeder said the sire was an adult at 6 feet. So Iím not really expecting larger than 9 feet which will be decently manageable. For now enclosure upkeeps is super easy because heís so small. He always poops in his water so I just change his water daily and change out bedding every once in a while. The enclosure Iím building now I had planned with the Annie in mind though so there will be a large bathing space, which will probably be a bit more difficult. WORTH IT.

    Sounds good, you could add an aquarium filter and use an aquarium in the Viv so you can see him underwater

    Maybe get it drilled and fit a drain plug for maintenance

    Along the same lines but without the viewing opportunity a tank would provide, you can get rain barrels or half barrel ďpondsĒ that are already fitted with a drain plug that attaches to a garden hose. It should be easy enough to cutdown to the depth you want.

    Re: 2018 Yellow Progression

    Update on the anaconda! Heís been doing great. Did a full tub scrub down today and got him out for some handling and pictures. Also snagged his weight- 249g, up just short of a hundred grams since last weigh in. The feeders that came in for him were a tad on the large size for him, so heís been eating every other week and he seems to be thriving on it. Heís also been an awesome handler, heís yet to strike at me ever, and isnít super flighty when heís out; rather he clings on pretty damn tight and just hangs out. I think relative to size his grip seems to be the strongest by far. Hereís a photo dump! Heís starting to look slightly darker than usual, he may be coming up on a shed in the next couple of weeks.
