Suggests to me that you shouldnt have bought them yet.

maybe though, they know the basics and just asking for personal added info, i did the same when jjack got his, he had rread up on them, but there is nothing like personal info from people who have them...


on the other hand, the OP might know nothing... lol

lol, the OP said they know the basics, such as how to house them etc...

Its normal for people to be a little worried when they first buy a rep - I know theres still questions i have about my corn snake that i got today - nothing that could harm them if not done just little bits and bobs but still

learn too take care for them first and then look into breeding , watch your females ,if they do breed and lay eggs, be prepeared to seperate they get very huffy ,with each other , best kept in pairs , give weemix a pm she has a lot experience with these.

As you have quite a few of them i would keep a close eye on them as they settle in. While settling in give them as much peace and quiet as they are incredibly timid creatures, once theyve settled in they will slowly become more bold, especially at night when they become very active and usually very vocal.

I would hold off feeding them for a while as this will stress them out further, just mist them a few times a day to keep the humidity nice and high, other than that id leave them alone. The temptation to fiddle with things is great at first but unless its absolutley necessary its best to leave it.

I hope your not keeping them in your bedroom!! If you are you wont be getting much sleep with all the chirping and barking that they'll be doing!! lol

havent managed to get any of them yet, but how do u upload on here
Go to photobucket.com and set up a picture album, it’s free and doesn’t take 5 mins. Upload your pics from your computer to the album.

Under each pic there are 4 codes, highlight and copy the IMG code. And then just paste it on your thread.
