Hey,
Yea i know what you mean about what the snakes go through to get over here. One last thing. If the animals are captive bred is the survival rate still 5-7% because of such specialized care or is it a much greater percent. I would have to think because of it being captive bred it will be very healthy and live a goodlife if the owner cares for it properly. I love gaboons A LOT.(one of my favorite venomous snakes)but the size is what keeps me from getting one. I have never handled a venomous snake with such size and girth if you know what i mean. Are the gaboons calm or do they strike a lot? What is the best way to get them from the cage to a holding bin (like a trashcan or other cage) while cleaning it's cage? Is the 2 hook method the best or do you tail them and use one hook to keep the head away?
Thanks for all of the help and answering my questions. I really appreciate it. Zack
