Hey guys! I finally made the decision to get my first retic, took a lot of reading, a lot of asking to other retic owners around, watching vids, and pictures to make take the next step. Making sure I can afford to feed and house a snake like this, and the final step, actually buying it. After checking out a LOT of specimens I took this one. Female Tiger Reticulated Python. I loved absolutely everything about her. She's tame, I've been handling her for periods of at least half hour every day. She is about 6 months old, reaching almost three feet (I havent measured her accurately) and weighing 5.03 lbs (2.3 kilos). But I have a few questions now that I have it. Somebody told me that it actually looked like a Genetic Stripe, I have been looking at a few pictures of both the Tiger and the Stripe, and they look a like, at least to me. LOL Can somebody give me like a specific thing to look for in order to make sure it is one or the other? The second question is about feeding, how long, or is there a specific thing to wait for when switching from a 7-10 day diet to a longer waiting period in between meals? Weight? Size? Lenght? Anyways, no more questions and I present to you.... Aphrodite!!!
