IMO, reptariums do not hold humidity or heat very well at all. It all escapes. Something like a critter keeper or rubbermaid box is great for small snakes and something like a vision or large rubbermaid tank is perfect for the larger and adult snakes. Handling should be pretty much limited to take the snake out to clean its cage, if even then. They are more of a decorative species, meant for show and not touch. Most of them time I just leave mine on his branch, take the branch out of the cage, clean the cage, and then slip the branch back in. Make sure you get a CB specimen...I bought an adult WC import and they are a fair amount of trouble. As mine is male, he fasts for long periods (sometimes 4 months or so). I am sure more people will have insight for you as well. Andy
