    Thanks for posting that. Although I don't have any constrictors (or any herp for that matter) I love to read about how they should be cared for. It informative, incase I ever do get one. I just hate the fact that people died to bring the situation of inexperience in herp care and handling to light. Not to mention I hate how the media has a frenzi over these terrible incidents and sensationlize them. They resort to making these animal look like monsters, as though the situation isn't bad enough to begin with.

    Hello,
    The only good news....is BAD news. Its difficult to find a positive piece of media coverage that pertains to herps. No one really cares to read about it. However,if a 20 foot retic eats the neighbors puppy,that will get full coverage. Its not something I agree with,but its how it works!
