    Hi Boa
    Mangroves only get as big as the male your holding.
    You got to love them they are awsome to watch, but mine were fairly timid.
    They never bite & are easy to keep.
    Congrates RichardSC on yours.

    All the best,
    Jason

    Because of the cold weather he isn't as active as he would be so I don't have too many more photo's but will get some more.

    Jason, thanks for that it is good to know he is full grown as he is easily manageable at that size. He's pretty mellow really and although he doesn't really look forward to being touched or handled he doesn't stress about it.

    what conditions do you need to keep them in and what size cage do they need.

    I think the answer to the cage size question is give it as big a cage as you can with a minimum of say 2 metres by 1.5 by 2 metres high.
    Mine is very dark brown and green in colour.
