    I have a crazy obsession for snakes basically like everyone on this site lol. Im more into larger snakes because of the crazy colors but these snakes are reasonable small and have absolutely gorgeous colors. I'm just wondering how hard are these to take care of (such as special care) ?, and just basically anything a person would need to know about them.

    They're not hard if you provide the right conditions. Set up an enclosure first and run it a week to make sure everything is constant and working properly. Invest in the proper equipment and it's easy. They can be a little more touchy about eating if their conditions are not met. Can be aggressive but you having large snakes should be able to deal with it :) Heat panels are the best heating source for arboreal snakes and a quality thermostat make life simple. Their humidity does need to be high at least as the days starts and can then drop some.... invest in a captive bred animal, stay away from imported farm stock as it can be lots of trouble and many do die... Most captive bred animals are already on frozen food so it's easy.

    Other then that IMO there is no more beautiful snake then a chondro! :x
