Last night he let me pick him up while in blue. He was a little apprehensive at first but I was slow and let him investigate my hand before picking up. The only other snake I've picked up in blue is my brothers Royal, but they don't count!

That's good news, it sounds like you may have a calm Yellow and you're working well with him.

Here's a picture of mine being held by my daughter. He doesn't bite. He's 5 years old and about 7 feet now.

Yes, I do believe so. Thank you
Wow, he's an impressive width. He looks to be chunkier than my legs.
It seems to me that me and you are the only ones with calm yellows, everyone else has told me how bitey they are! We must be the lucky ones lol.

Ofcourse how could I forget about yours. That's a great picture by the way.

I had the rare opportunity to compare 2 different snake's sheds.
The one on the left is a few month old Yellow anaconda. The right is a 2 year old ratsnake. The difference in width already at such a young age, especially for a slow growing snake is incredible (I think anyway haha).
Also the rip in the shed is me being to rough with it trying to straighten it out.


Anyway onto todays update. He shed, successfully. However bumping humidity by 5% gave an ecordian effect on the shed. I'll try bumping humidity by 10% next time.
Thanks.

Today my yellow got a new home, a 4x2x2 viv.
He seems to favour the log hide beside the water bowl over his cave. It's more of a snug fit and he sort of periscopes his head out when there is activity outside the viv.








And why not add in a snap of him in his viv.

Lovely set up mate

I am falling more and more for these, I was considering either a STP or a SD retic next year but these are really starting to become a firm favourite for the next..unless an Indigo pops up!

Glad he's doing so well mate, stunner
