In Reply to: My new corn snake. posted by amy on April 27, 2003 at 16:05:15:
Yeah, I know what you mean. I remember when my husband and I were newly wed. I grew up with pets, but had spent a long time in college in "pet-less" environments. He had a baby turtle, and that was the extent of our pet experiences. We were living in Georgia at the time, and one day I was walking down a sloping driveway when I encountered a small snake slithering along the ground. I walked with it for a ways, talking to it, admiring it. Finally it slithered off into the brush and was gone. I told my husband about this (we'd been married less than two weeks by this time) and said, "Once we move to Arizona, perhaps I can get a pet snake" Of course he didn't like the idea, and for myself this was simply a little whim left over from the pine snake my brother had when I was a child. Then we moved to Arizona and a little ground snake slithered into my classroom. We kept that, and I started frequenting Kingsnake.com. The more I read about other people's addictions, the more I wanted to own a "real" snake. one that was larger than a small worm. Finally I talked my hubby into buying me a rosy boa for my christmas. He was so intriguing, then we came into some money, and so we bought three kingsnakes. then we got a fourth, and a fifth. Now we have 3 cal kings + 8 incubating eggs, 5 ground snakes, 1 arizona mountain kingsnake (captive bred and gifted to me in accordance with state law), 2 appalachicola kings (the female is gravid), a single Rosy Boa, and yesterday we just purchased our third corn snake. For a man who didn't like the thought of even ONE snake, my husband is incredibly tolerant.
Ah well.. you didn't expect a story, didja?
