iw as wonderen could people share some experiance with me about yellow anacondas and prices
Made me chuckle when I was reading care sheets on these guys before I bought mine.I have had a couple over the years and each was as nuts as the last. They dont nic name them "chainsaws" for nothing...LOL. I do know 2 herpers here though that have 3 large animals and each are handleable to a degree. Unpredictability I think remains with most of them throughout life. They are also usually cheap as chips to buy because of this reason.
Isn't the rule of thumb with the yellows:A variable species that can be either kitten tame or a spastic chainsaw serpent
Males 6-8 feetI'm at work so excuse my lazyness but how big do these guys get??
Cheers, I don't blame you either. A friend of mine has a green and it is a big, angry lump of a thing.Males 6-8 feet
Females up to 14 feet, usually 10-12 though.
Not that big in terms of big snakes but much smaller than the greens hence why I chose the (male*) yellow.
*Even if he turns out to be a she, still not a huge difference unlike the female greens getting to 17+ feet.
I haven't wuite figured what to do when I need to clean out mine when he's bigger. Yellows according to some on the net dont like small containers and bags? Let him loose around the house, ok if he's tolerant but of not that could be very interesting if he hides and doesn't want to come out again. Maybe I could lure him out with one of the kids?Cheers, I don't blame you either. A friend of mine has a green and it is a big, angry lump of a thing.
The yellows seem a bit more manageable but I can imagine their still quite a bit of work on cleaning day
Yeah. I can imagine that will be a bit of a knightmare. I have enough trouble with the big boa's when the head for the table legs.I haven't wuite figured what to do when I need to clean out mine when he's bigger.

They can also eat underwater which is something to be seen to be fair.
A yellow anaconda is nothing like a boa in terms of personality. My boas are like puppies and my anaconda isnt. This makes them both great for their own reasons. I find the yellow more interesting and a lot more of a challenge. However she stinks the place out with musk and piss on a bad day and bites a lot. However when she isnt in this state, you truly appreciate her niceness whereas with my boas I know I could leather them around the house and they wouldnt even hiss so you take them for granted a bit. Get a young yellow and you wont go far wrong man. Alternatively get a yellow anaconda and a bcc and make your own mind up. Both would live for years in a 4 x 2 viv. Mine are soon due to move upto a 4x4x2 in the near future as they are getting large.they do seem like a good snake to get, iv had snakes for over a year now, and was thinking about getten a boa or a yellow anaconda, but yellow anacondas seem more my type
what size of viv would be best for one of these?
