Hey Raymond, thanks a bunch for the compliments. I must say, I was kind of cringing as I opened the retic forum, expecting negative responses like, "what a dumb kid,.... how could you?,... you hypocrite,... you're awful!" etc, lol. But yes, I would be more than happy to keep in touch and talk "snake" via email. I already have many "friends" from these forums with which I have built very rewarding rapports. Some in other countries which I find especially intriguing. I don't work and the snakes and other reptiles only take a few hours out of my days, but never consecutively, only a few minutes here, an hour there, etc. So in other words I always have the time to email or post, 7 days a week. I will email you shortly. Thanks again for the kind response to my forum novel.


:BrianSmith,
:I want to say that your post wasn't long enough! I thouroughly enjoyed your story. (very well written too, I must say) I have a 9 month old, female retic now, that's about 6+ feet. She's my first "big" snake, and I love her to death. Not being very experienced with large constrictors, i've been going through a learning process for the last 7 1/2 months that i've had her. I read EVERYTHING possible on snakes in general, but ecspecialy retics. But I know there's no books that can teach hands-on-experience. I was wondering if you could help me out with any questions or just in general along the way. I've been coming to this board for about 6 months now, and you realy know your stuff. I'd like to learn from someone like that. I would definitly be receptive to personal experience stories, retic do's and dont's, etc. I'm oblivious to these awesome animals, like I said i've done alot of homework and research on these guys, but nothing beats experience. Thanks for reading.
