IS THERE ANY HERPETOCULTURISTS AROUND HERE?
I AM LOOKING FOR ANY FIREFIGHTERS OR MEDICS WHO ARE INTO HERPETOCULTURE (KEEPS REPTILES AS PETS). I HAVE ONLY ONE BOA (HAD A FEW OTHERS, ALONG WITH A DIAMONDBACK) I ONLY HAVE A HOGG ISLAND BOA (PEARL)
PEARL IS ABOUT 8 FT. LONG AND ABOUT 5 YEARS OLD.
I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW IF ANYONE ELSE IS INTO THESE WONDERFUL PETS. HEY MABEY THEY WILL TAKE OVER THE DALMATION

I had a beautiful Ball Python a few years ago until my boyfriend moved in with me. He didn't mind having the snake, however, his mom was deathly afraid of them. I had an unlimited supply of free food from a local gerbil farm I used to work at. Unfortunatly, they sold the business and keeping a breeding pair was not a good idea for a small apartment.
I used to walk around with him around my neck, allowing my daughters friends handle him. Boy, you have got me thinking about getting another snake!

GO FOR IT!
I RECOMMEND THE BOA (COMMON)ANOTHER BALL IS GOOD TO THEY SAY THEY ARE PROBLEM FEEDERS, I HAD ONE I NEVER NOTICED.
BECIDES IT KEEPS THE INLAWS AWAY(ALLWAYS A PLUS!!!!!)
I WAS RECENTLY OFFERED A THAI COBRA (NOT INDIAN).
MY WIFE WOULD NOT HAVE IT!, AND I NEEDED TO GET A PERMIT! GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS SUCKS SOMETIMES

SteamTrain and I are cut from the same mold. For some reason whenever I cross paths with 'ol sneaky snake it takes an electric shock to get my heart back into proper rhythym. In no way am I knocking people that choose to keep snakes as pets but a herpetoculturist I am not.
