True, and you made a good point.

Point taken. I keep my 55-gallon vivarium with a screen cover, and I mist daily. I also have a salad bowl as a soak dish, concealed in the corner in a very nice naturalistic setup.

I've also selected porous lava rocks which will keep pockets of water on them for hours. One plastic plant is especially dense and retains moisture well, too. My setup should be fine.

While he's mostly calm & placid, handling is the biggest issue. Prior owners were boys, and then the man with a snake rack. I don't think that he was handled much, or properly, and he was likely never taken outside. As a young adult, he's just now learning what it's like to explore, climb, feel sunshine & wind and engage with a Human.

He gets daily handling now, with outside exercise on warm, sunny days. I have a large back yard with shrubs and open areas for ideal supervising while he enjoys nature.

It would be interesting to know what region or port city they were known to ship out of, thanks for your efforts.
