My first Gaboon

Postby bergsma » Sat Jun 25, 2011 9:17 pm

Greetings all

Just finished my new setup for my first Gaboon Adders, got them today (Thanks Urucone :D :D )

Will load pics as soon as they settle in they are a bit grumpy after the drive :( Have to say these are insainly amazing reptiles, waited a year to get the perfect pair

As always, any advice or tips would really be great.

Thanks ;)

Killer snakes man I wish I had a burm but I stay far away from "hots".But I must say they look very nice sa well, you should have a look at rhino vipers they also cool.

Thanks

The thought has run through my mind but Rhino vipers are very fussy and hard to keep. Did look at them, did tons of reading, but don't think they are right for me now.Got to add that I prefer "hots" just makes you respect snakes more and also makes you way more careful.

Yeah like me I rather take an aggresive snake rather than a chilled one because I think they have more of a personality I know that it sounds kinda crazy but thats me :-D

But on the other hand I will never get a 15 foot burm that wants to kill me ;)

I feel the same when it comes to personality, all mine have their own. My Burm are very very mellow just can't wait to get out. I do spend a lot of time with

all my snakes (as much as possible) Hopefully they all will stay this way even when grown.

What snakes do you keep?

Nice Gaboons! Are they captive bred or wild caught? Do you have any locality information on them?

Both those B.rhinoceros came from me as a matter of fact and they are both captive bred.

@ Tails n Scales

Just thought I'd let you know that its going very very good with the Gaboons, eating like demons and drinking well

Very nice snakes

Indeed very pretty. But it some times said that Gaboons are not very active snakes.

They are mesmerizing when fully grown, i cant stop staring at them probably the only venomous snake id allow myself to have.
