What is on your wishlist?

Hello all,

Just out of curiosity, what are those snakes that are on your wishlist, or in your dreams, but you don't have in your collection? I'm just curious here if there are people around struggling the same as me with attaining those special/rare/difficult to find species?

Personally I'm dying to get my hands on a pair of Boiga cyanea. I just love the look of those, but my girlfriend is not allowing for any venomous snake around, even if they really pose no harm for humans (even hognose is out of the question) ... I'm still trying to convince her. The other would be Gonyosoma oxycephalum... beautiful snake, but they are big and bad tempered so I've heard. I don't mind snakes with an attitude, but I heard these guys can be pretty insane and like to bite you in your face instead of hand. And last but definitely not least and more common snake, but so far I have not found a breeder here that has them, Lampropeltis alterna Black Gap. Nice looks, but, here in Hungary very rare, as in not seen in over 5 years.

I found a breeder of G. oxycephalum just yesterday, but his snakes are currently in the local zoo. He told me to shoot an e-mail in late summer when he has them back.

So, what are your sought after reptiles?
