Re: What is on your wishlist?
Oooh boy, this is hard.
Near-ish future (my land lord currently has my critter-count capped, and breeding here is entirely off the table, so I'd need a new space):
*Boaedon capensis breeding pair or trio, they're such adorable little snakes
*Really into corn snakes now after seeing more in person recently, totally in love with striped ones.
*Male Bci, I really love hypo leopards particularly but a sunglow is also really striking
*Female pinstripe BP, maybe an axanthic?
*Cal Kings, especially with a nice even white/black banding, mostly because king snakes as a symbolic thing are really fascinating to me (there's a line in Red Dragon comparing Will Graham to one which really stands out to me)
*Leucistic Texas Rat Snake. My uncle had one years ago and it was a gorgeous, gorgeous animal.
*Pueblan Milk Snake. These I think the basic, wild pattern is the most beautiful.
Further future (would want much more experience/funds available):
*Granite burmese python. Some of the retic morphs are really stunning, but with what I've heard and seen of their temperment I think a burm would really be great, and the granite pattern is really nice looking. If I ever stepped into giants, odds are it'd be here.
*BRB. Maybe doesn't deserve to be in the same ranking, but I'm not comfortable with the potential dehydration issue just yet, particularly since I take some long weekend trips. An automated misting system and/or babysitter for the weekend would go a long way.
*Sumatran Short Tailed Python. That solid black coloring, man. God damn.
*Probably never gunna happen, but hey it's a dream so why not mention it: Albino monocled cobra. Beautiful animals, but I have no experience with hots. Maybe someday, it's something I'd like to learn more about, but the day I get one is far, far in the future.
