I picked up an adult Honduran at the reptile show yesterday, and I couldn't be happier with him. He's pretty, he's completely tame, he's huge and he only cost $40! To be frank, I'm wondering what the catch is. I suspect he's pretty old and could either die soon, or perhaps he simply can't breed anymore. I don't care about breeding, so that would work out just fine for me.

My other suspicion is regarding his eyes, as they have a grey ring around the edges. Is this a retained eye cap, or is he blind, or is it something that appears with age or is he supposed to look like this?

Also, this guy is probably too big for large mice. What do you think, small rats in the 40 gram range?
