Well, sometimes young carpet pythons can be a bit nippy and nervous, but with regular handling they’ll usually grow out of that. If the one you’re getting is four feet, hopefully it doesn’t have that problem any more. Do you know what type of carpet python it is? Irian Jaya sometimes stay at a length of about four feet, but it’s probably not full grown if it’s any other type. Other than that, there is just some general advice that you probably already know if you’ve kept snakes before. If you have any other questions or need any more advice, there are a lot of people on the forum that can try to help.

I’m not sure what he’s feeding the snake but if he has them on mice you need to switch them over as soon as possible. even if your snake is at its full length its pointless to have him on three mice which is equal to a small rat when the cost comes out to be the same. if you want to save money you should buy in bulk online from a place called RODENTPRO.com they have great deals.
