Re: Good Transition Snakes

The species most commonly listed for this won't really get you ready for a large giant constrictor...even the largest boa constrictor is no match for a full grown retic or Burm, or other similarly large snakes.

Their behavior can also be radically different. Some giants may be active and highly arboreal, some can be a bit more lazy.

It might be better to just try to get hands-on experience with adults of your chosen species than try to gain experience using other species. The only snakes that will compare to a giant will be a giant.
