I recently acquired a pair of Kalatoa retics. They are wild caught imports, I normally never buy anything wild caught but went against my gut and bought these. I have had wild caught in the past and have been very successful with taming them and having them become good eaters. The female I got is great, good Eater(not in front of me) but a very good Eater and has actually calmed down and rarely strikes. The male who is roughly 5 feet hasn't settled in at all. He is by far the most aggressive retic I have ever had. It's really disappointing bc I love my snakes. I am looking for some advice on helping this guy settle in. I have had him for 3 months and he has not eaten yet. Any advice I have tried lots of things to help him. This is the just the first time I have not been able to get a retic to eat or somewhat calm down. I'm all ears if anyone has any Advice let me know thanks
