Hi all I live in Cairns and today inherited a female around 9ft and approx 5 years old. Her current owners are moving away and unable to take her with them. As they couldn't find a suitable home they were faced with some horrible options. I am going to speak with them tomorrow and find out as much as I can but would appreciate any advice as this is our first snake (other than the local intruders we get from time to time living in the tropics) So if anyone can suggest books, websites or just offer some experienced advice. She is currently in a large glass fronted cage with ventilation (chicken wire ) on the sides in the top quarter. There is straw on the bottom and a ledge to sleep under, a small water dish and a large branch on an angle into the top corner. She seems very placid this is a pic of my partner straight after she had been moved prior to being put back in the cage. She was also passed to another male whilst getting her cage into place and seemed really content.
