I miss having a snake

Once we have a house, or the rattie girls are gone, I will have a rosy boa. I loved my BP, but I don't think I'd have another.

Whoa- they are ALL gorgeous, but this one is just amazing! How hard are these types to find?

I always go back and forth on wanting a snake. I've researched a lot about corn snakes, as I've been interested in them for the past couple of years.

I have 2 corn snakes, a dwarf boa, a hognose, and a green tree python. For beginners, I think the corns and hognose are awesome. The hognose is probably the cutest little thing ever. The boa and python are both more testy. The python will bite you faster than you can blink. She's nuts.

Looking forward to more pictures from people! I think we're going to go with the Boa, if by the time we're ready it's still available. I figure if we're gonna have one snake that big, we should only just have the one, so I likely won't get another, even though I want a corn or a king... or a piebald ball python, lol. But meh, I will love the boa, I am sure.

I posted in the other pet section of the forum, but here's our new baby:

I keep corn snakes and recently began a breeding program. I'm pretty passionate about them. I have nine corn snakes. As pets, they are generally have very mellow temperaments, are easy to handle, and hardy eaters. They do require a bit of startup investment in order to have a proper habitat setup, but their living/feeding costs once they are established are very reasonable. Also, they are available in a bunch colors and patterns.

^^ Of course, this is the short short SHORT summary version about their care, but I have the capacity to write a book if I don't limit myself. LOL

Sadly, I don't have any recent photos uploaded anywhere handy, but I do have a few threads already posted here on the forum (listed starting with the most recent):

http://chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=153289 << This thread is actually kind of boring... it's just my rack system setup.
http://chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=131216
http://chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118894
http://chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=118192
http://chazhound.com/forums/showthread.php?t=117760

Again, these photos are all seriously old. I'm really embarrassed that I don't have anything newer to share. I will try to update with a new thread of pictures in the next couple weeks.

I also have a Mexican Black Kingsnake. Their habitat and feeding requirements are very similar to corns, as has been stated. I will say that their temperaments are very different. I wouldn't say they are aggressive, but they are far more prone to be naughty. My MBK has been known to throw a temper tantrum when you try to get him out of his viv, but once he's out and being handled he's a doll.

While I can't come up with who/where they are off the top my head, I belong to a corn snake community that does have a couple Canadian breeders. I will get back to you as soon as I can track them down.

As for shipping, I don't know what it would be to ship from the US to Canada, and to be honest, I'm not 100% certain whether that is legal. I'll have to look it up. Anyway, within the US, I can say that it's typically in the ballpark of $50-60 USD for shipping through FedEx (which is the only certified reptile shipping option available at the moment).

Hope that helps!

They're mostly in the hands of really dedicated hobbyists, so the best way to find them is just google stuff like "rosy boa breeders", or if you know of a specific locale you want look for that. Classified ads will pop up here and there. Some of them have websites with pricelists posted, and those folks will often know how to contact people who also work with the same types but don't have an online presence.
