Ready? You have experience with snakes in particular medium or larger snakes. You have the space, and the money to feed such an animal. Your age should largely matter. If your a teen will your parents help you with a large snake. IF not don't even think about it because i use an 8ft rule. A snake 8ft or larger should NOT be handled alone. Find a person or pet store with larger snakes. Work with them awhile and then go for it. Good luck,
John


:Since first seeing retics i have been in love with them. This happened with a few other species of snakes i saw as well lol. I would love to get a baby retic but i dont think im ready...am i? What did you guys do to prepare for him/her? What housing steps did you have to take? Where do you get food and how often are you feeding?

: I know the generalized answers to these questions, but i would like to see what you fellow herpers are doing. I dont think im ready yet, but i would love to add a retic to my collection someday later on.
