Caring for these gorgeous creatures especially the Giant Retics and Burms that will grow anywhere from 12’ to 20’ is not a one man job. I myself thought about the years ahead this last time I made a purchase, what my plans are and the possibilities I could have a harder time 20 years from now caring for a large snake. As much as I hate to admit it I will be starting the road to being a Retired Elder by then hahahaha. Im hoping Im healthy and feeling good still but these are all real facts we should all consider when purchasing Pets with such a long life span that are hard to rehome and that not just anyone can care for....

    Very true. I do think about the future of my animals. What happens to them if something happens to me? I have a plan in place but would be upset if things did not go right for my animals.

    It can be very hard to curb your enthusiasm. I had wanted a retic for almost 20 years before I finally took the plunge. When I did I loved them so much that I got another, then thought I could stack 4 cages high because I always wanted I tiger and the local store had an ivory that I thought I had to have. Luckily common sense took over and I realized that I needed to stay with the 2 I had, wait for them to get grown and see if I still wanted or could handle anymore. The last thing I wanted was to get overwhelmed or burnt out. Enjoy the one you have, learn and gain as much experience as you can and in a few years if your comfortable adding another then go for it. Very easy to underestimate the commitment a large constrictor takes.

    I understand your enthusiasm to buy a new snake as myself have been doing it recently. but before you do go ahead .. because regardless of what people tell you / advise you will do what ever you want. my point is it’s easy and cheap to look after a small snake but it’s best to have a couple years having larger snake get a feel for your albino instead of jumping in deep end buying 2 hatchlings and not knowing what your commitments are and also you shouldn’t even been feeding mice they can have small wieners from hatch I have never fed a mouse to my snakes unless one of my hoggies refuses a feed please think about what you are going to do as I seen a post asking why your burm is burrowing one of mine does the same thing as long as your temps are fine there is nothing to worry about and I don’t provide hides for mine as I feel as they mature they become defensive over them but that’s my personal opinion nobody else’s
