>>I just brought this guy home today. I've always admired these guys and I'm happy to finally have one. He's about 4'.

That guy has some fantastic color. However, he could be somewhat stressed. Here's some things you might work on, if you want, to reduce stress and keep him healthy...

First, I would only feed the best mice. Second, I would try to make his environment humid enough, maybe a moist hide for awhile. Finally, I would quarantine him, and give him time to adapt to a new temperature regime. In the long run you might want to brumate the snake.
