*Sadly, too many people choose pets for the wrong reasons (colorful, size, cuteness) and it is the animal that will ultimately suffer.

I didn't mean to come across as if I'm on a quest for cool factor. I own a green iguana. I understand that certain herps take a lot (lot) of time and devotion. I also understand full well the bad results of getting a pet because it looks cool (this happens in epidemic proportions with green igs every single day). I have read about feeding, hibernation related problems, etc. And believe me if I get a snake it won't be before I am fully prepared, and fully settled after the summer. Thanks for you help.
