    Nice, just a little to big for me to manage though. ;)

    Is there some sort of issue with them eating rabbits?

    Many Anacondas refuse to eat everything except fish and poultry, it can take years before you get one on rabbits. It does make sense because Condas in the wild mostly eat fish and young birds until they get big enough to start feeding on the larger animals.

    I never knew that they had to be introduced to rabbits- it does make sense though. Good information, if I ever have to rescue one. Thanks for the information. ;)

    Is that true for yellows as well? I know its a long ways off, but a yellow is definitely in my future. I'm absolutely in love with them lol. Someday ill be ready.. Lol

    Yellows are generally easier to feed in captivity but it is far from uncommon to have a picky eater. However, yellows are far from perfect since they defecate almost everyday. It sounds like a small issue but unless you have an enclosure that makes cleaning very easy it can be a choir to keep multiple yellows.

    Yeah I have read about that. I am planning on building a wooden cage and lining it with linolium or something like that. I will probably go with newspaper substrate as well. I see light coming from the tops of the cages, do you use belly heat as well or just the lamps for heat?

    I use Pro Products Radiant Heat Panels, the light is just a non-heat light I picked up at Home Depot. I mostly use Vision Cages and they come with an area for a heat lamp though.
