:Thanks
:but, what about enclosure size, temp, humidity...
:thanks again

I keep them at ambient humidity...around 50-60%. Temp stays pretty constant 77-78F. I'm sure it could be a little warmer, but they are in the same room with bushmasters, so the temp is set based on bushmaster requirements(and thus may drop to low 70's at times). I'm sure they can tolerate the higher temps...it's just how I keep mine. Right now a shoebox is their enclosure....but for larger ones, they will most likely do fine in a 48-72" enclosure. Neuweidi can get 5'+ so I plan on keeping these in a larger Neodesha. I currently house 1.2 Adult Terciopelos in a 72" Neodesha....so I know the neuweidi will be fine in this.

I've never had any shedding problems at the above humidity with neuweidi, but I have with asper, so I believe they are more tolerant of drier conditions.
