I think moving a hungry large snake (Burm/Retic) that smell food in and out of a feeding container is a accident waiting to happen. Go in his enclosure more than just to feed, and use a hook to take him out without feeding and you should be fine. If they smell food they usually strike at anything that move including your hand, face, legs and body, but I think you get the point.

:I keep several species of snake, including a Burmese python. However, I just bought a tiger retic from Bob Clark and would like to know your opinions on feeding in the enclosure or in a seperate "feeding container". I know the topic has been covered before, but I would like even more opinions. I'm nervous and excited about my new retic and would like to be as prepared as possible.
