Hi! My name is Bigoli because I am a big noodle!
My foster family says that I am a gentle giant because I have been handled and loved since I was a tiny noodle.
I require my own habitat that is big enough to accommodate my size. My new family must have reptile experience and preferably large snake experience.
I am a large snake that is currently about 7 ft long. My average length is between 5 and 9 ft long. My lifespan can be from 20 - 30 yrs but again, some of us live 40 yrs long! With the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity I can live a long and healthy life!
My previous family was not able to afford my medical care when it was discovered that my scent glands were infected. They wanted to make sure I was in good hands though so I was surrendered to the shelter who then transferred me to the rescue.
While my medical could be taken care of with surgery, it is also manageable with a vet visit about every 4 months. Our adoption counselors can share more about what that means.
If you think we may be a good match, or you would like to get to know me better, please click the Adoption Application button below and an adoption counselor will reach back out to you!
