    Could you tell me about them?
    What are your personal experiences?
    How docile are they?
    Difference between males and females?
    Adult size and weight?
    How long until they reach their full length?
    Type of enclosure?

    Thank you for sharing the links with me. Are they generally aggressive? I understand that all individual animals are different with different personalities, but are they known to be aggressive?
    And how long do both males and females get? How much do each weigh?

    They are not aggressive as much as defensive.

    I am sorry but my personal opinion is that they are not cuddle buddies, they are observation animals that should have minimal contact with their keepers.

    My animals tolerate me just fine, but if I go near them with any food scent on my hands, I am going to get bitten. If I pick them up for any length of time, I get clawed up a little.

    The animals that you see all over the internet sleeping on people, curled up with dogs and on leashes are all poorly kept animals that are dying slowly.

    They belong inside their enclosure.
