Hello there fellow herpers. I'm thinking on adding a new member to the family, and since there are many experienced herp keepers here, I would appreciate any advice. Does anyone here keep or know anyone who keeps Green Tree Pythons? They are one of the most beautiful snakes in the world and I would love to add one to my family. I've tried some of the chondro sites and haven't received any info yet. (Either they don't have a clue or don't like strangers .) I've also tried finding info on-line, and there is little to no literature on these fascinating creatures. So, hopefully someone here can steer me in the right direction. Thanks.
I can't add anything concerning snakes. We got around Christmas time and it died within a few weeks. Folks told me the snake had to be ill before I got it, cause we had it's habitat set up properly but I'm not confident enough to try another one. I'm sticking to lizards! (along with Thrasher we have a Mali Uromastyx and a dwarf club tailed iguana.)
If you need to contact me privately, please do so using the personal message system here on IZ or by email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thanks everyone. I'm finding a lot of conflicting information about GTPs on most forums. There really isn't a whole bunch of readily available info on chondros, but I'm 99.9% certain that I'm going to take the leap. Comparitively speaking, our iguanas are much more difficult to care for than most exotic reptiles and mammals, so I'm sure I can meet and exceed a GTP's needs. If you guys or gals have any more info or suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated.
