    The only draw back to them is they can get fairly large. They are pretty though :)

    But there length compared to there girth is nothing of a Burm or retic. It reminds me of a giant tree dwelling snake which the python hunters said they do like to climb so I would love to see what size cage they need

    They are similar to GTPs and they don't require as much space as you would think, but then again adults don't get too big. I'd be curious myself to know what they need for space

    If I ever get a day off work, I plan on researching them. They'll either be hard to find or cheap and easy to get. Either way ill let you know.

    I have a friend who owns a scrub, they are semi-arboreal and their faces are extremely beautiful....as far as length goes they can get pretty big atm his scrub is at 7 feet and still growing, ATM he is in a 75 tall, but I think he is going to build a custom enclosure for it.... However, heed this warning they can be grumpy and I promise you, you will not like their bite.. Id rather get bitten by a GTP over and over rather than being bitten by an scrub, especially a sub-adult or an adult scrub..I'm
