good question, its actually a quail (thawed) and is all this snake would eat when i first got it. it took me ages (read 1.5 years +) to convert it to rats ! i personally dont think birds (quail, chicks whatever) are very nutritional for a snake so wanted it on rats anyway + when it gets real big it would take a big amount of birds to satisfy it each feeding :wink:

it would take mice, but not rats, but they were like chicken nuggetts to it size wise, but its eating rats nicely now and is bangigng some weight on since the switch :D

lol i think i am, tbh i have 3 anacondas 2 green and 1 yellow and (touchwood lol ) they are all gems and all like this one. when the shop had hatchling greens in most of them were very good. outa the 2 i would say greens have 'far' better temperaments than yellows, but that said i know 2 other people with yellows that are as good as gold ! but they definately are few and far between lol

Ohhh...Thats gorgeous! I do love anacondas :lol: Would love a green, but they just get too big for where I am living at the moment.

That certainly is a lovely snake though, lucky guy :lol:

wow that really is amazing. i'm soon to get a retic. i presume a green anaconda would be a step up from that. is it true that they can get quite smelly?

hi, well to answer a couple of questions i would say that a anaconda is probably on a par with a retic rather than a step up, i have both, but some people might say otherwise so thats just my opinion :D obviously it could depend on the particular snake but as you know they can both get massive, both can be either 'tame' or grumpy ? i would say a retic is a lot more alert and anacondas can be rather lazy but they sure move quick when they strike

as for smelly, well i guess you heard right. when i got my first yellow anaconda and it did the bussiness i can remember thinking 'jesus that stinks ' !! it definately smelt worse than a snake of similar size, but i must of got used to it now :wink: :lol: :wink:

Beautiful snake, is it male or female?
tbh i dont know ? although they are slow growing i would guess the animal pictured is a male, but its only a guess as i havent had it probed, they can apparently be sexed wrong aswell because they have a large scent gland that can throw off the inexperienced prober lol. my other green was probed as a female, and i would tend to agree as its growing a lot faster than this one, although it is my best feeder by far :lol: so you never know :? i doubt i will ever try breeding them so till then i dont really need to know as they are just 'pets' :D
