    Getting a baby burm next week

    Long time lurker, I created this account specifically because I need to share my excitement and hope to connect with other keepers.

    To preface, I have been keeping reptiles for 17 years. I never thought I could have a giant snake due to space. Well, my partner and I just bought a property in desert country and this baby will have a 10x10 outdoor enclosure as an adult (as well as an indoor for winter)

    Iíve done a lot of research and settled on a male Burmese python. I love retics as well, but from what Iíve seen the males just donít always have the best attitude once they reach maturity. Also, I am a relatively smaller female, and while my partner will be around for handling, weíre more comfortable with a male- yes, heíll still get huge, but not 18 ft 200lbs huge lol

    Were thinking of naming him Jamal. It means beauty and he is beautiful but itís also funny because he has a derpy face. Heís coming next week after the crazy holiday weekend is over.

    Iíll post a pic as a reply here since Iím still learning how to navigate the forum.

    I'm sure I speak for others too when I say we look forward to meeting "Jamal" (or-?) & hearing more about your adventures with him. Lurk no more!

    He's got a real unique look, & yes, I have to agree, a "derpy face", lol. Whatever you name him is up to you- he won't care anyway.

    I'm so envious. When I retire, I'm moving someplace warm so I can build monstrous outdoor enclosures.
