I was looking at a 5yo water python today, great looking snake at a great price for 1 reason, it bites. I put this down to the fact that its an ex breeding snake so it wasn't socilized much for its 1st 3 1/2 years of its life, add to that its enclosure is way to small IMO. The enclosure is 3x1.5ft and the snake is 7ft. I'm thinking that if I put it in a much bigger enclosure and handle it moor it will quiet down. The thing I want to know is are they a biting breed like green tree pythons or would it just be the enclousure and how much its been handeld. If i was to get it, how big an enclosure should I get it? I'm thinking a 4x2x2ft same as my Works is in would be a minimum and a 5-6x2x2 would be better and probably a turtle tank so I can set it up a large area to bathe in.
