Thanks, Froggie! You should let him get one if you believe he's responsible enough for one. They are amazing pets, and pretty simple to care for. My mother, the hater of all snakes, brags on how simple their care is all the time. Corns are definitely a great beginner snake as well. They dont get too large and are generally very gentle, easy to handle snakes. I can vouch for that. Chester was the first snake I ever owned and she's the most tame snake I've ever met. I'd love to see a photo of the Leo! For some reason, Leos and I just do not work. I always wind up getting bitten.


As far as snakes go I don't relish the idea of feeding them mice. It's enough to have the crickets, meal worms for the gecko.
This is Amber. I posted this pic of her in the Gecko thread. Still need to get a good updated photo, but here she is on Christmas day.

JP, your tegu is gorgeous! I absolutely LOVE them!

Will do, Jordan. But, I'm afraid I'm not 100% sure I can make it to the Stockton show!
I have the whole week off right before it, and this year they aren't releasing birds till Sunday even though normal judging should finish on Saturday. I'm going to email the president and ask if they could let me leave on Saturday after judging, since I totally wont be having any on champion row or anything.

Quote:Ok, cool. Well if you cant, its cool. But that will definitely suck, because I was hoping to follow you around like a stalker because I have no one else, LOL.
Hopefully you can get something figured out. If not, there is always reptile shows popping up.


Froggie, its really not that bad. Especially if you feed frozen/thawed, like I do. As long as you arent offended by giving up some space in the freezer for a bunch of dead rodents, then its all good!
My parents didnt like the idea very much.... but they didnt like the idea of me owning snakes either. Now I have 8 snakes, 10 live mice in my room and about 300 in the freezer!

Bingo on the F/T mice/rodents. I never feed live anything except crickets/superworms, etc...

Thanks for the kudos Kanchii! We love Beauregard he is very gentle, a real sweetheart of a lizard.

My next gu will be a red tegu, perhaps this yr.

Yea I hafta agree on the F/T - my freezer is half stuffed full of trays of frozen rats. >< Prolly another reason your mom might not like Ballies. Mice aren't sufficient enough once they get big enough for rats(rats have better nutrition value). As soon as mine get big enough to eat rats they shoot up twice their sizes in no time. It's a huge difference. But yes, f/t though I have fed live on occasion due to F/T supply issues but in those cases it was mice to minimize damage to snake and stunned and restrained ones at that. Heavily supervised. Though again, mice are too small for them so had to feed him every night like that until the rats arrived and he was STILL hungry. ><

Rats are a little more awkward to feed to snakes too. They're surprisingly less cute and small and like to bleed a lot when defrosted... for some reason.

In a previous life I had a 8 foot Red Tail Boa. I called her Julia Sqeezer. She didn't eat rats. She ate bunnies. She was very friendly and used to handle her all the time. But, if she was hungry and you were putting the food in the cage you better get back fast, because she was going for whatever was moveing. I had her in my family room in a very nice finisher cabinet with a sliding glass front. She was an easy pet to care for. Much easier than chickens. I really enjoyed her. Reptiles are cool!!! The new wife won't have it. No Way.
