Hi! My name is Pretzel!

Fun Fact about me! I have so many alien heads in my pattern that makes me very unique! I'm a relatively young snake but I am mature! Being nocturnal, I spend most of the day sleeping in my hide but I do like to come out in the evening to socialize.

I like to explore outside my tank and I will readily come out when you open the lid. I would do best with an experienced adopter/adults because I am constantly on the move and need supervision when I'm out of the tank. Once I am out I am very easy to handle and hang out with, although I prefer not to have my head or neck touched please!

My Foster Family says I weighed 1990g on 10/13/2023, length -> longer than 5 feet, and they had not measured girth. They say I am the most active at night but will occasionally poke my head out during the day and I am friendly.

I require my own habitat that is secure. I have managed to get out on a few occasions so my habitat will require a lock.

With the right diet, habitat, substrate, temperature, and humidity I can live a long and healthy life of up to 30 to 40 years! Though I am considered on the small side now, I can get as big as 5 feet, as a female, maybe even bigger!

I was transferred to the rescue by my second home. They adopted me from a neighbor and realized they love snakes but they are not a snake family. And that is okay! They wanted to give me the best chance to find my forever home, so they did right by me :) Now I am looking for a family that is a snake family, is it you?
