Hey everyone, Long story short, I have a $75 store credit with LLLReptile that I plan to use at the LA Pet Fair, which will include the Reptile Super Show. I also have an empty, non-furnished, 4'W-2'D-2.5'H wooden enclosure I plan on filling at said event. If I get a baby of whatever snake species, I have a 20gal tank ready to go with light and thermostat as a starting tank. Initially I was considering a carpet python. Chances are I may still go that route. However if possible I would much prefer to go with a yellow anaconda. I am absolutely in love with the 'conda face structure and pattern. I also want to try a heavy-bodied snake, seeing as my other snake is a slender rainbow boa. Now don't get me wrong, I love the look of carpet pythons too, but this next snake will most likely be the last herp I purchase for several years while I'm in college. As such I'd like to get what I really want. So here's my main question, can a proven MALE yellow anaconda live comfortably and healthily it's entire life in a 4'W-2'D-2.5'H enclosure? I say male because I have read that males stay considerably smaller than females, roughly 6-8 feet. This size is what leads me to believe the cage I have will be sufficient. I need to start planning for this now seeing as a yellow anaconda cage will be set-up quite differently from a carpet python. Naturally if the yellow anaconda would be an unwise choice for this cage, I will stick with the carpet python. The herp ALWAYS comes first. Thanks for reading!
