Awe. DDD: I'm pretty sure my family wouldn't touch my house since most of my step-sisters are terrified of snakes. Of course, I don't think I'd get a reticulated python. XDD That's way to big for someone like me. I'm thinking of getting a leopard gecko then a carpet python. Then, if I can afford it, a tokay gecko. :3
I know~!! They're always smiling~! It makes me feel so fuzzy on the inside. >w< I don't know how much money it is to feed one though. : I I need to buy a place to stay before I get one. ;__; Then very much later I will get a snake. There's some pretty strict policies here about owning large snakes. I suppose that 7' snakes are included in that equation. Then again, I'm not sure what kind of carpet I want.
Also, do you have anyone to help handle your large snakes? That's another reason why I wouldn't get a Retic or an Ana.
I wouldn't mind a Burmese sun glow, but they cost a bundle to buy and keep what with the huge tanks and stuff.
And yeah, Tokays are pretty grumpy. XDD I would get an infant if I got one though. We would be friends in to time. >W<
Nah I just have the one retic and I can handle her alone, everything else is corn snakes, ball pythons, sand boas and a Nicaraguan boa.
I had a burm that turned out to be a cross with a rock python. he was super aggressive.. I just don't like burms cause they get so girthy so fast and need lots of food and space to keep them managable...
My starter snake was a sand boa. They are so small and sweet no one knew I had her for 4 years!!! They burrow under the sand so everyone thought it was just a zen garden LOL
They're really curious and active too. I think they are the best lizard you could get for a pet. They don't need lots of extras too if you're on a tight budget.
Is the retic the biggest snake you own? Does it have an name? :3
I would think that retics were the same way with girth? I don't know much about either of the two snakes. I've just seen some really chill burms on youtube and the sun glows look so amazing. I'd have to research more about burms before I got one. Right now I just think that they're really cute~!
That's too funny! XDD I wish. I'm really liking what I hear about the carpets. I haven't done as much research on them as I have leos, but so far they seem like a very rewarding snake that's easy to handle. It doesn't have lots of girth either, so I figure that I can start with a leo and that would give me the experience for an intermediate snake snake. Compared to the leos, carpets just need a greater humidity depending on what carpet you get.
