    That boy is looking great Cody.

    I've seen a video somewhere of an anaconda eating a boa constrictor.

    Are they snake eaters typically or just opportunistic feeders that go for whatever they can find?

    How do you feel this guy compares to some of the male cretics you've kept?

    You now have experiences with the 2 largest species of snakes on the planet.

    I'm quite curious to know what similarities and differences you've observed between these 2 species.

    It may be a little early to ask that question, but I'll keep checking in.

    Beautiful animal, and I liked the video!

    Too soon to know a lot of that. They are primarily rodent and mammal feeders with the occasional opportunistic feeding in the wild on things like caiman and I suppose other snakes.

    The biggest difference right now is just predictability. Retics wear their emotions on their shoulders. They are always curious and when they are in a mood you know. Anaconda within my experience are more reclusive in their emotion. You canít read them which makes them a lot more dangerous. In al my years working with retics now at this point Iíve never taken a bad bite. They have always been predictable enough. Iíve been but from stupid mistakes from our big girl once and from a couple males when they were young and I was in a rush to clean lol. The anaconda has already had two close bites with me and one close bite with my wife. None of them were foreseen just random. They will be throwing their body to get away. They will be relaxed and calm. Then just open mouth and fly at you randomly. You always have to watch the head. Itís one snake I will never trust with someone who doesnít work actively with large snakes.

    My two cents.

    The video is pretty rough. But wanted to get something up. Will probably pull it Monday

    Went ahead and moved him to a more natural enclosure style. Added enough substrate for burrowing and holding higher humidity. Added a large water basin taking up approx 1/3 of the enclosure. He seems to utilize the entire enclosure now.

    Got his feeding desires on lock. He is 100% a quail destroyer and hates anything else. He will take 2 quail a week now!
