My Beaded Lizard.

My male green anaconda. He's around 4 feet, so he still has some growing to do.

Ooh, you have a beaded lizard! I'm jealous. I think they're so pretty, but that their bite can sting to high heavens. When you handle yours, do you use gloves? Or are they typically pretty docile? Or do you not handle it at all?

And I love your annie! Seeing all these pics of anacondas isn't good for someone like me--makes me want one, lol. He's beautiful. Is it true that they need a big soaking dish since they're "aquatic?" Some people say it's a must, others say that's a myth. He's gorgeous though.

My beaded is a little pissy in his cage, so I use a glove to pull him out. He usually clams down once he's out. Anacondas, IMO, don't need to to be in water all the time as long as their enclosure has enough humidity. Most of the people I've talked to who keep and breed them have told me the same thing. A couple times a month I put mine a separate container to soak while I clean.

Over here it's illegal to *not* have a waterbowl big enough for the snake to soak entirely in - whatever the species. :O
And Anacondas spend so much time in the water in the wild I wonder if they could be truly content without it. Like a sand boa that doesn't get to dig and bury itself or a tree boa that doesn't get branches to hang and climb on?
My main interest is in parrots, dogs, toothed whales and snakes.
Future animals I want to have when we have land are camels, wolfdogs/wolves, coyotes or jackals, striped hyena or aardwolf. Also poultry, rabbits water buffalo and/or yak for livestock.

Most of the green anacondas you see for sale are wild caught. Wild caught greens tend to be more sensitive and defiantly prefer to stay in water. Sometimes they wont eat unless they are. Mine was captive bred and cbb anacondas do a lot better. So far I haven't had any problems.
