    Alright, I recently purchased a tiger retic. He's gorgeous, upwards of 7-8 feet.
    But to my dismay, I realized he must not have been handled very much, as he pees every time he's handled, which I know is a defense mechanism. I guess what I'm wondering is, is it a retic thing to pee more often when handled, or do you think with time he'll get over it? Since I'll obviously be handling him more, let me know what you think.

    Mine used to do the same thing. Most of it was due to the him being out and moving around and exercising more.

    I think it's due to the amount of exercise you're giving him. I'm curious as well about the size of his cage. You might consider waiting until he poops in his cage before taking him out, or take him outside.
