    I guessyou could say I like snakes, given I have ~100 of them.

    Technically only 21 of them are mine:

    14 ball pythons (3 Woma, 2 Albino, 1 Candino, 1 Lesser, 1 Mojave, 1 GHI, 1 BlackPastel, 2 Albino Woma and 2 WT)
    2 grey band kings, Black Gap locality (1 Anery and 1 WT)
    3 western hognose (2 Andconda and 1 Albino)
    1 corn, amel (my oldest @ 24 years)
    1 green tree python
    1 black head python

    The remaining 80-odd are all ball pythons and belong to a friend of mine who is going through a bit of a rough spot in his life, so I am caring for them until he can get himself sorted out


    I also have a couple geckos (African fat-tail and a knob-tail) and a Brazilian white-kneed tarantula

    Meh... In some respects I was lucky but mostly it is just about following your passion. I have been a herper since I caught my first snake at 4 years old and I have had a reptile in some form or other every year of my life since then. Mostly it is just being part of a good community though.

    As for SOs... My ex-wife was tolerant of my hobby but only marginally. Were we still together, I certainly would not be taking care of my friend's animals for him and in all likelihood my personal collection would be half or less of what it is (for a number of reasons that are not particularly relevant to the conversation...)

    Snakes have such a great texture. It's weirdly addicting.

    I've had my ball since junior year of hs (I've graduated college now), carpet for 2 years, rainbow for idk maybe 3, and boa for probably 3.

    My boa is such a sweet heart and she's getting so big. She may be my favorite. But the carpet python is definitely the prettiest. The rainbow was a rescue and has no eyes from abuse, and my ball is my first ever. So they all have a special place in my heart :)

    i will take a pass on snakes lol

    if they are poisonous (which we have several here that are), i will kill them without a second though (too many kids and pets running around to risk a bite). Harmless ones though i let live to eat mice and such.

    i did add a juvenile eastern fence lizard to my hermit crab set up last month and hes cute. and eats the fruit flies the fruit for the crabs attracts ;)

    Snakes are venemous not poisonous and you risk getting bit moreso by killing them than just leaving them alone. Just a little 411

    ^^^^THIS.

    I'm sorry and not to be a *kitten* but it really aggravates me that people click on the forum named "SNAKES" and then hate on these creatures or talk about killing them when they have done nothing to you. Or people will tell me that my pet is gross, a disgusting creature, i'll kill it if it gets out, etc.... I get snakes aren't for everyone but to tell someone who has them as a pet is no different than me saying that to someone who owns a dog. Just because you don't see them the same as a dog or cat doesn't mean we don't love them just the same. No creature deserves to be killed just because it is what it is.

    Thank you <3 Both posts. YES

    We have a show next weekend and another the weekend following. I will certainly be going, will not be buying though (of course I said that last time and came home with a new hognose so... )
