unfortunately i dont think we will ever stop people exaggerating their snakes mate,its one of my pet pieves too be honest as a huge percentage of giant snake keepers make false claims.
the latest one is medusa,shes clearly no more than 20ft yet shes claimed at over 25ft lol

Simply gorgeous snakes mate....

I have to ask , what do you use for food items.

My dwarf retic (3 meters) will take rabbits weighing 2 kilos. Hasn’t grown over an inch in 1.5 years time. Probably gained some weight.... Picked up for 50.00 US and is reportedly a male 5 years of age.

He is a pleasure to own and I am happy to report not aggressive at all since I have begun working with him. Prior owner had used a hook to retrieve from enclosure...not a pretty scene, but probably necessary as the snake was very hungry.

Goes off food like clock work every Oct until April ....is this the behavior of a male? Lack of prominent spurs makes me think I have a female too. I suppose probing would be the definitive way to answer my own questions.




thanks for sharing the fabulous snakes....

glad you like them mate,most of my big girls eat giant rabbits weighing 5kg+ on average,some take 4 to 5 in one feed,some of them are picky though,2 of them will only eat guinea pigs or chickens in numbers

your dwarf going off food in the breeding season will unlikely indicate its sex mate,some of my females go off food almost religously when the breeding season comes around but then so does my male and most other males ive owned,having said that my male didn,t go off food at all this year

Thanks for the replies...4 or 5 Flemish giants ...insane. I raise New Zealands and have always wanted the Flemish breed. They get huge...

Interesting to know that the females go off feed as well as the males. thanks

Cheers

im not 100% sure what breed of giant rabbits they are mate,they could be continental giants or british giants all i know is they average over 5kg infact most are over 6kg.
yeah some of my females seem to go off their food at the same time each year but obviously some of them are pigs and eat reguardless but i could say the same about some males ive owned aswell

I use giant rabbits over 5kg each,the biggest girl takes 4 to 5 in one go no problem,i feed her 2 monthly on that amount but she would prefer it every 3 or 4 weeks lol,she would be much heavier if i let her have her way
