My experience with GTPs over the years is that they are much tougher than they are given credit for. That said, you should perform due diligence and be sure to educate yourself properly before purchase of one of these beautiful snakes. I would recommend reading Greg Maxwell's book "The More Complete Chondro"-there is no better source of accurate info on the GTP.....

It may be true that the occasional chondro refuses to drink from a dish (particularly possible with juveniles), but since most folks mist their chondros daily anyway, the point is moot!

One problem reported even by experienced keepers is the occasional unexplained death of a seemingly healthy animal, It happened to me once in my small collection (7 chondros), and has happened at one time or another to every chondro keeper I've spoken with....
