    I wanted another reticulated python. I miss lemonhead sooo much! But I just visited him, he's doing great on my old mentor's care. For details on why I gave him away (as a gift!), see this link:

    I brought home a beautiful female sulawesi retic. For an idea of what that looks like, click here:

    I adopted her from a reptile rescue, she's about 15ft long and still has A LOT of growing to do.

    Thank you. Sulawesi retics are a bit more nervous and flighty than most snakes, retics in general are like that.

    Are you sure your DH is afraid of all snakes? Do you think he'd tolerate a really small, really gentle snake? Because I can recommend a few species if you tell me your situation.

    If not, that's okay too. Don't mind me, I love to play "matchmaker" between potential snake owners and snake species.​

    This may be a shot in the dark, but crocodile girl, do you know of a snake that is as big around as a pencil and around a foot long? I had one in school once, but cannot remember what kind it was.

    Sounds like a common garden snake.

    Hey Crocodile girl when you get a chance I'd love to see so pics of your animals and your setups.
