Rex Colubra is a long-time reptile keeper and the creator of the YouTube Channel, Rex Colurba’s All-Animal Channel. In this episode, Rex walks us through how to bond and connect with your reptiles, including how to tame an aggressive snake. Rex treats each animal as an individual, sentient being, which is the key to building trusting relationships with the animals you interact with. We discuss reptile intelligence and how underestimated reptile cognitive function is, even within groups of advanced keepers. Rex also tells us about a large co-hab set up with Boa imperator (Hog Island boas) and Epicrates cenchria cenchria (Brazilian Rainbow Boa). We wrap up the episode by discussing building DIY enclosures.
