What I have learned...

Here is a few bits and pieces I have learned that deal with herps...

RULE 1:
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.

RULE 2:
Never get very emmotional when something gets out. You just never know when it will come back.

RULE 3:
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).

RULE 4:
Never underestimate your corn snake. You'll be suprised what they can eat.

RULE 5:
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...

RULE 6:
Hamsters chew out of everything.

RULE 7:
Inscense can only block out the smell of snake poop for about 30 minutes.

RULE 8:
Once you come back to buy a snake/lizard/whatever, it's usually gone. Buy it on the spot.

RULE 9:
Snake hooks help. They really do.

RULE 10:
This is probably the most important rule I have learned...
Bring your money to every herp meeting, just in case.

Can anyone relate?
