I have been looking at these for a while since they look like lovely snakes. I am due my first paycheck from new job and this could be a nice way to blow it. Anything other than whats on the caresheets to bear in mind when picking one up?

Ummm they are great...... lol
make sure if you get a baby they are eating well shedding pooping ect, give them things to climb on, get one thats active, not constantly in the water bowl, as it could be a sign of dehydration and/or mites, also check their muscle tone.... so if you hold their tail they should be able to climb or hold them selves up to go up your arm (if that makes sense : victory:

Also look out for signs of neurological probs if you chose a jag, as its quite common, they will 'Star gaze' (look up at the sky an look a bit spaced out) they sometimes wont be able to hold their neck an head weight to climb up, and may have a head wobble or turn their head to the side or upside down

my big coastal wobbles every now and again when hes concentrating on his prey so dont be too worried if they look a bit clumsy sometimes, especially if they are bigger coz they tend to be a bit stupid sometimes...well mine does anyway lol
