    Anybody Identify This Pic??

    Who can identify this snake?

    I'm thinking a Carpet Python?? But I could be totally wrong.

    It's at a Reptile Rescue about 2 hours from me,

    I knew you guys/gals would be quicker on the ID then emailing them

    Thanks for any help!!

    If it doesnít have an RI, looks like you get a new pet.

    Did animal control get the cages also?

    Good luck!

    That's unknown to me, I sent them an email asking if they had any other pictures, any known issues,

    and the approximate length and weight if known. Waiting to hear back, They have a pretty stiff re-homing fee (in my opinion) but if it includes the enclosure

    and maybe it's negotiable to a point if I'm willing to drive a few hours each way. Just maybe I'll have this years new pet.

    I've been looking at a few that needed homes but they seem to get adopted a lot faster than they use to.

    Hopefully that's a good thing and more people are accepting snakes as a pet and not to be afraid of.

    Well got a reply back this morning....

    "Heís full grown, about ten years old.

    We donít generally weight adult snakes unless they look emaciated. No known issues.

    Heís easy to handle."




    Not a lot of help there.....



    So full grown is ???? 6 feet? 8 feet? Longer???

    If it's (no clue on sex) 10 years old it another 5 to 10 years in it's life span, maybe more?

    It would need a standard terrestrial enclosure or an arboreal enclosure with lots of climbing?

    We have a full grow male carpet who is just over six feet. I don't think they get much over seven feet, tops. Females get a foot or so longer.

    They're semi-arboreal and they do like to climb/perch. Mine is in a 6'x18"x24" enclosure and is usually coiled up on top of his driftwood jungle gym under the DHP.

    At least he's "easy to handle"...what's another foot or two anyway? (pardon my enabling, hahaha!)

    All of my adult carpets are 6-7ft. I donít expect them to get much larger length wise. Life expectancy can be 20+ years. A 4x2x2 or 6x2x2 enclosure would be awesome for an adult carpet. Mine arenít very active but they do appreciate branches and shelves for climbing and perching. Theyíre really easy to care for and fun to keep. If heís healthy then I hope you take the plunge.

    Yeah but "Easy To Handle" compared to What??

    And don't worry about "Enabling" , I'm a self Enabler, I manage to talk myself into all kinds of things
