First off, chill out.
Second, maybe you should read his first post, my advice, and then reread his 2nd post.

I was not being rude, simply stating a fact. I have seen all too often people getting a snake that they cannot handle and the animal suffer. I was only stating the obvious.

His original post he wanted a snake smaller than his ball python and asked about a corn, king or rosy boa. Good solid advice was given about those snakes. A red tail is not a small snake and IMHO, is not a beginner snake. I just dont want to see people getting in over their heads and the animal is the one that suffers.

So before you jump on someones case, I suggest you look at all the facts first!

:I SAW THE POSTING BY DJAIRAM AND I WAS VERY INTERESTED TO SEE THE COMMENTS TO HIS QUESTION. BUT INSTEAD YOU TOOK THE LIBERTY TO WASTE EVERYONES TIME. WHY WOULD YOU QUESTION HIS PURCHASE... WE DO NOT KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT HIS CURRENT SITUATION...MAYBE HE REALIZED THAT HE CAN SUCCESSFULLY ACCOMODATE A RED-TAIL. MAYBE HIS IS QUITE FAMILIAR WITH RED-TAILS AND WOULD LIKE TO TRY ONE ON HIS OWN.

:INSTEAD MAYBE YOU SHOULD BE CONCERNED WITH YOUNG TEENS (AND ADULTS) PURCHASING BURMESE PYTHONS FOR $55.

:NEXT TIME PLEASE DON'T WASTE OUR TIME AND WRITE SOMETHING WORTH READING...
