:Its a sub-adult app. 3 1/2' long thats been in captivity ove 8 mos.
With that said, I quarantine all new arrivals for at least 6 months. If they are bonafide WC, I have even set them aside for 8-10 months. It's not worth risking others in my collection. Make a vet visit and have everything checked out.
As far as feeding goes......if he doesn't seem stressed, I usually wait a week or two. If the animals are well acclimated, they should do well for you. I feed one good sized meal every 7 days. Regardless of what anyone tells you, you need to have you snake wormed and flagyled. Don't take anyones word for it.....and be careful with the flagyl. A QUALIFIED vet should know what to do. Good luck.
