I have 2 wc of five years in my collection, one recent wc that is eating and thriving and then 4 CB that are of course fine, my two long term wild caught each have laid 10 viable eggs over a period of 2 years, ihave 2 males and 5 females as the colony. While I abhor the conditions these animal are usually kept in, and I am not for taking large numbers from the wild it would be hypocritical of me to complain as I have purchased wc. I keep mine in a closet, dark, in a moist moss substrate in a tupperware. I soaked each one and let them drink. I offerd food at one week and have had no problems, using a smaller meal than you would normally feed a snake this size. No de worming, wait for 2 months, then introduce meds via food in SMALL amounts of approx 1/4-1/2 the recommended dosage for their weight. Good luck if you do buy wc but C/B are really the way to go on this animal.
