In this episode of the podcast, I chat with Nick Bella a private anaconda keeper, as well as Troy Bumgardner a Zookeeper out of the Denver Zoo. The main focus of our discussion is two-fold: 1) appropriate enclosure size for large constrictors and 2) appropriate feeding, including fasting and food cycling for large constrictors.
