I picked up an adult trio of these at a reptile show yesterday for next to nothing. All the info I could get from the seller is that he got them on accident from a shipment, they are wild caught, they have been in the country for about a month, they have not been treated for parasites and they are eating live mice. At any rate I have always liked them so I picked them up. I currently have all of them housed together in a 100 gallon aguarium in the mid 80s and about 90% humidity. They seem to be doing fine but then again its only been a day.
My question is should I treat them for parasites and if so what do others with more experiance recommend? I have no problem taking them to the vet but if I do I want to know what to expect and what to ask for. Are there are any good current care sheets out ther for these guys? I did not find much myself.
Thanks for any feedback as this is my first attempt with these guys and I want to make sure I am providing them with everything I can to make the transition as stress free as possible for them.
I would take pictures but I am just going to let them be for a week or so.
