Dry crap does not smell worse than Pit crap. Drys just produce it more frequently. Lots more frequently. They do not need to be fed every 3 to 4 days. My male eats pretty sporadically during breeding season. Also, once they reach sexual maturity, they do not eat nearly so frequently.
One drawback to eastern indigos is the hassle and cost of securing the Federal permit. It cost $100 and is sort of a pain in the butt, however, it is well worth the trouble. Most important thing is to find a good breeder who has unrelated stock. Because they are Federally protected, the captive breeding stock has been interbred. I really like the Mexican red-tail cribo, also. Not so interbred and no permit required. But they are more expensive than eastern indigos.
To me, the good old northern pinesnake is a great animal and a real bargain, as far as pits go. They get huge and look amazing.
