Hi Ruff

My yellow annie is the snake I've had the longest. A lone male. When he was a baby I took AT LEAST 10 bites a day, but now he is just as calm as any of my other snakes. Plus the ladies love him ;)

Just be sure to handle him often as a youngster and he is sure to grow up calm and gentle.

Do you know if you have a male or a female? The females tend to get quite big and bulky

I'm not the pro on posting pics..
but there is a forum somewhere explaining it.. (I'll look for the URL and post it here)
or you can upload them to a site like photobucket, and just paste the image URL here.
remember too put the image's URL between image tags.

Nice snake. I've always liked the anacondas but never kept any.
