Default Any Snake Owners?

I have a new found love of snakes. So just wondering if anyone here has any? If so, do you have pictures of them as young-ins and now? What kind of snake are they, what colour/morph are they? All that fun stuff. Two friends of mine have 4 between them, 2 Ball Pythons, a Redtail Boa (only small now) and a King snake. I've handled their little King snake baby and been around all the others. Just getting into really liking them now, so pictures are needed.

Don't currently have any unfortunately, but may be getting my bloodred corn back hopefully once Josh and I have a house. If not, then I'm planning to get either another corn or my dream snake (Hog Island Boa)

I have pictures of my past snakes if you want to see them. My snake want has been sooooo bad and I was really unhappy about losing my last two.

Here's my dream snake... hog island boa (not my pictures obviously)

baby






and because they are SO cute when they are little I need to post another baby pic


Do you have a type of snake you are more interested in? I definitely recommend corn snakes to beginners as they are relatively easy to care for and majority of the corns I've met have been super friendly. My little bloodred was a sweetie pie... my female snow was a tiny bit more temperamental, but once you learned how to approach her properly and she knew you she was fine. She was great though and was the type of snake that is willing to chill out on your lap while you're watching tv lol.

LOVED having snakes and definitely would own snakes again one day... I'll browse around and grab some photos of my last two.

I like the Ball Pythons. I'd like to have a Piebald some day. Sigh. But so expensive. But I really like the king snake my friend has. And I am under the understanding that they and corn snakes are very similar... So I'd like to have a corn snake some day... though I met a Bolivian Boa the other day that I really liked!

Love boas Skittle!!! They have puppy mouths. <3

I used to raise corn snakes, but haven't had any in a long time. My daughter has been begging so hard for her own snake or lizard for a while now, so we got on a waiting list for a pair of Limburgh strain baby coastal rosies. We're hopefully going to get an anery female and an amel male, and make hets for snow rosies.

Anery


Amel


She really really wants a kingsnake too, but I told her to wait until she's older. These guys stay little and cute, and are super docile. She wants to name futuremale Legoless.

Those are some really pretty snakes... but I am confused, what kind are they? Sorry, I am a total snake noob.

Okay, I have recently discovered Pied Sided Corn Snakes! I want one.

Anyone know of any good snake breeders in Canada, or know if you can ship them from the states to Canada? And any idea how much that would cost.

Rosy boas. They're slightly fussier than corn snakes, but overall really docile and hardy. Basically they don't tolerate as much humidity as corns, and the babies can be a little trickier to get started on food. My old rosy was named Mr. Beauregard, but he passed from old age a while ago and I don't have any pictures.

Each RB locale has a really different look, and people try to keep the locale strains pure. The ones I posted are coastal rosies, an albino and an anerythristic. My old boy was a Morongo Valley. I'd love to get a few other locales eventually, but that's a few years off.

They make good a starter snake for a dedicated beginner, as long as you don't start with a brand-new-never-eaten-before baby. Especially if you already have experience with another kind of reptile or an experienced mentor, it takes a lot off the learning curve. These guys are really hardy if you keep them warm and dry enough.

Maricopa Mountain RB


El Rosario


Nichols Road


Otay Lake


And Morongo Valley


There are tons more. Tons.

Not sure, he was a rescue. Best guess is that he was an '08... so 5 years old!
