Well I was born into snakes (father had em) so I am not sure what my "first" snake was. The first snake that I actually claimed as "mine" was a western hognose which I bought from the East Bay Vivarium when we were living in Ca, this was about 1985, am I really getting this old? I think I have had just about ever type of snake, minus hots, from asian rats, boas, pythons, hognose, pituophis, NA rats, garters, racers, kingsnakes. Through all these my favorites have become the North American ratsnakes, which comprise about 99% of my 75 some odd snakes, I still lack baja rats and green rats (triapsis sp?). I do have a few odd balls in there, ok two:) which are a deppei jani and a cali king, hoping to get some cantenifers and some diones this year.
Well that was kind of long winded, and yes they are getting expensive, going to be starting a mice breeding program at the end of the summer.


:I realize that this is a ratsnake forum, but who else here has passions for other species? Lately Asian elaphe and cornsnakes have completely taken my interest, more-so then in the past, but I also keep some other animals that I love. My scrub python for instance. Scrub pythons are GREAT animals to work with. And all other morelia really. They were what got me into seriously maintaining a large collection. My first snake other then garters and corns was a tiny hatchling Irian Jaya carpet(who is till have). I've been slowly selling off my extras to get my collection back down to a maintainable size, but still have my most loved pets and some of the things i'm most interested.. Given I personally am in the hobby for my true love of reptiles as pets, not so much as to breed for money. All my herps are really pets and nothing more... I also personally plan on getting into a few hot species in the future. Its too bad they're illegal in the county i currently reside in... So what all does everyone here keep other then ratsnakes?
