Talking the big snake thread

i thought id make a thread on general BIG snakes! as they have all been done individually i hope i dont annoy anyone generalising
id love to see pictures of all kinds of breeds and stories about owning them, also i wonder if anyone is nervous of certian snakes they may own also..or like me..i dont think i could have a snake that could potentially kill me! but i find them very intresting lol. id love to see setups as well

i handle and feed my 8 and 9 foot burms alone all the time, tbh i think everyone has their own limits as to how big a snake they will allow themselves to interect with alone.

I believe alot of it is confidence, Im not sure if i would handle a 10-12ft on my own, would have to get to know the snake first.Saying that many people do handle alone
