Congrats on getting into retics-they are amazing snakes and the "king" in my opinion. You sound very knowledgeable about constrictors so forgive me if I say what you already know. Retics can be very calm-the least snake that I have been bitten by. You will find them much more alert, active, and intelligent than burms and boas. On feeding day all my other snakes could care less but when the food items are thawing the retics are on high alert. When a retic thinks it may eat all is forgotten and they are a legless t-rex no matter how tame they are and can keep their feeding response for up to 2 days after eating. Feeding inside the cage is very important so the retic always thinks it will not eat when taken out. They respond extremely well in conditioning with a touch/bump on their nose to cancel the feeding response. Always handle a larger retic with other people present that know what they are doing. Best of luck and enjoy-Bill.
