Here is a few bits and pieces I have learned that deal with herps...
Never leave a snake un-attended. I was about 6 at the time. I spared another garden snake from my neighbor's shovel and put it in a shoebox (uncovered) while I went to look for a waterbowl. Well, I had no idea that snakes could climb. So when I came back, he was gone. No duh.
Never get very emmotional when something gets out. You just never know when it will come back.
Make sure that when you go on vacation, the person taking care of your animals knows exactally what to do (Which means he/she puts the lid back on the snake's cage).
Never underestimate your corn snake. You'll be suprised what they can eat.
However, feed tame hamsters to your snakes. Mean ones bite. They also bite your snakes. Then the snake loses intrest. I figured that out yesterday...
Hamsters chew out of everything.
Inscense can only block out the smell of snake poop for about 30 minutes.
Once you come back to buy a snake/lizard/whatever, it's usually gone. Buy it on the spot.
Snake hooks help. They really do.
This is probably the most important rule I have learned...
Bring your money to every herp meeting, just in case.
Can anyone relate?
