It is what you make it. If you handle it and work with them, they are great. Just as any baby they can strike quick. Retics do have a strong feeding response, that when you see it can be taken as a sign of aggression or being mean. Like when you walk by the cage and you see a mouth full of theeth flying at you and it shakes the whole cage. That only happens in the starting months when they start eating again. I really enjoy mine. They are very active and move a lot especially outside the cage. I would prefer my retics over my Boa's anyday as far as temperment and so on. They do get large and heavy but overall a great snake. I am sure if I missed anything the people in here will advise. I would go with a Tiger or Super Tiger if you go with one and invest in a snake stick if you do not have one.
