    I finally got my femmale retic this morning. She is healthy and very bright in color, the pictures don't do her much justice because its a camera phone photo but she seems to be healthy and very shy I didn't want to bug her too much as I know a new environment she must have been stressed. So I just took some photos and put her in her new environment. I'm really excited I always wanted to deal with these breeds and now I finally get to. Decided to name her Storm. 0515121230.jpg

    Thank You I will. I didn't want to handle her too much as I know she was stressed from the traveling. Her eyes are amazing though.

    When I was much younger I had one get to 17' before I got out of the big snakes. Nice thing about retics is they don't get AS heavy as burmese lol :p

    Hopefully she doesn't get as big as Fluffy did, I felt so bad for her!

    Congrats!! The Zoo in Edmonton has a couple they are stunning and HUGE! Of course illegal to own up here. Red tail boa and Olive pythons are the largest allowed in Alberta.

    Lots of color on her, she'll be stunning :)

    Fluffy??Never heard of her but I know the pre-cautions of them being huge and I would never go way over my head without knowing what I really was getting into. I would never start off with a retic if I thought I wasn't ready, before her i had a african rock and burmese python sadly they were given away because the whole moving process but I have a house of my own with a wife no kids that loves snakes as much as I do. So if she gets really big I'm ready for it.

    And for a retic surprisingly docile! Fluffy was owned by Bob Clark a local python breeder. I had a chance to see her a few times and she was really an incredible animal

    So what do you feed them when they get as big as Fluffy?
    I know the meat rabbits(flemish giants) get to about 20lbs, but that's not going to cut is it?

    Oh wow I can't believe you got to meet fluffy, very lucky. Yea the huff and puff of retics are overly exaggerated they do get big and can be a danger but I think with the right handling and precautions towards any breed really especially ones that grow large can turn out to be docile giants.
