The king of anacondas himself! SPEAK for those who CANNOT speak for themselves. Showing the TRUTH about these misunderstood animals. Taken πŸ’›

So this big sweetheart is back with me, meaning she's up for adoption again. I kindly ask that if you plan to keep an animal in secret and inevitably get caught not to inquire....I dont have the energy to go through her previous waitlist right this moment so if you were on it (or weren't and want to inquire now) just shoot me a DM and ill respond tonight or tomorrow morning. I'm gonna be stopping rescues (exceptions being if I see anacondas that genuinely need help). I'm just......tired emotionally and physically. I've dealt with everything from triple no-show to people constantly not being able to read my "I don't ship" disclaimers. The community is too immature and I'm not mentally stable enough to continue subjecting myself to it the way I am now. Some friends of mine who aren't big on social media will be doing local rescues in place of me. I'll still help and treat animals in need for free, just not board and adopt out from my "facility". Love you guys (I'm fine just a tiredboi) have a restful night everyone πŸ’“

I offered a small guinea to Abby today and she wasn't interested. Must be a yellow thing lol. She's gonna rest for yet another day or two and then i'm going to offer her rat - it's important she gets something in her system besides mice! (Mice are nutritionally deficient for a growing anaconda, especially a green at this size)

As odd as it is, leeches are such nice, interesting, low maintenance pets. Love my little trio, Laera, Lykra and Liidra!

I am getting a ton of inquiries on Abby and she is NOT for adoption right now! I don't know if she even will be, i'm honestly contemplating adding her to our anaconda family. It will be weeks or months before I make a decision and in that time as I said I need to get her on a proper diet and on our routine. If I do adopt her out I will be VERY picky as to who I adopt her out to. Anacondas have a very special place in my heart and I will not adopt her out to anyone I'm not 100% comfortable with and there will be many conditions to her adoption in which I will not go into detail right now. Again, if I even adopt her out. For now she's relaxing in a perfect little temp and humidity controlled environment. It's her first night with us and she needs rest πŸ’š
Tomorrow she will get healthy food 😊

Meet #Abbyanaconda
Given the circumstances, im surprised at her good health. With time and a good diet, she's gonna grow to be an amazing girl. Let's see how she does with the rest of the 'conda crew! It's gonna be awhile before I introduce them and will also be a long while before I make any big decisions about her. I need to see if the others will accept her into our daily routines such as enrichment time, nightly baths etc where everyone is together. I also need to see how she does with me (I know she's gonna do amazing I'm just being humble). Welcome to the beginning of a healthy/happy life kiddo. You're the smallest anaconda here lol

Ari (@ariawesomeness)

Here's the anaconda girl I just rescued who was being kept by a ball python breeder feeding her MICE 😣
And apparently she's had a bunch of other issues like bad sheds....can't wait to fix this girl up. Her name shall be Abby πŸ’š
She's not a yellow but ill care for her like my own kiddos. She won't be up for adoption for a very long time. My first impression of her is that she's surprisingly healthy looking, and incredibly strong! She's got Annie's grip at 1/10th the size! Oh and she's a sweetie. There's the cringey ad I got her from lol.

I'm so excited for my 3 little manillensis babies to be 2ft each aaaaaaa 😍
Having them is convenient in that, as much as I hate to say it, they do not benefit all that much from enrichment honestly, although I've tried. So, I only take them out when I do maintenance or feed them/hold them. This leaves all my time to focus on giving the anaconda girls and Jakk tons of enrichment ☺️

I should really keep track of Laera and the other leech bbs growth rates better haha, as the only one to my knowledge of owning this species in the states, I gotta be their embassador as best I can!
