Quick question, I recently purchased a female albino retic. I want her to grow fast and large but not fast enough to make her obese and decrease her longevity. Possibly breeding her in the future but for now she's the only snake I have and a family pet.

I have kept reptiles off and on for 20 years so I can give her good care, whatever she needs when she needs it. That's why I got her. I'm going to have a couple of fantastic animals. I love large snakes. (Let me know if anyone in illinois has a female green conda)

But, I don't want to grow her too fast so that she may have intestinal problems or what not.

In the past I fed until the bump was gone and not so much that when theyre coiled their scales crease. I can definitely spot an obese snake. I'm probably fine but I thought i'd get a second opinion.

Also these forums are dead, let's liven this place up. I know there's hundreds of thousand retic owners, whys the last post like a month ago? Is there a better retic forum around?
