In Reply to: Considering a Green Tree... posted by MooseMonitor on January 21, 2003 at 21:45:45:

: Hi,
:I've been considering adding a green tree python to my Herp family,
:but want to be sure I am adding the right creature for my home and lifestyle.
:I am prepared to build the proper enclosure in our Reptile devoted room,
:so the enclosure is not a problem, the problem lies in I know only
:a little about the Green Tree's and would like to know more.

:I'd like to know about personality, Agressiveness, Trainability, and Feeding Habits.
:I understand that they are known to be "nippy" but I wonder if this is true
:aggressive behavior or just instictive and can be calmed with good handeling and care.
:I also am not sure about the proper tempature for them. I understand they need humidity,
:I hear "High" but what humidity is high? I currently keep my reptile room between 85
:and 96 degrees, and I usually keep humidity 30-40. I can increase the humidity inside the
:snakes enclosure without a problem, but would like an actual Number to aim for.

:I'd also like to know, proper cage sizing (Im thinking of building my next snake enclosure on the lines of
:8 foot high, by 4x4... I know, I have a lot of room). Should Green Trees be kept seperate if NOT breeding?
:Can they live communally? Any live plants that do well with them? So far all I've heard is that live plants
:will not do well with them because they are too rough on them. Also, whats the best age/size to get my first
:one? Mind you, I'm very experienced with snakes and herps in general, but I want to be sure I do the best thing
:for any new creature.

:Thanks in advance,

:Mike (MooseMonitor)
