oh, forgot to mention that I agree with almost all Marisa had to say...esp. about the goldfish. I got into herping about 6 years ago, when I got my first corn. I think I got it for a couple reasons a) it was very colourful b) I was told it was a great beginner snake c) not a reason, but I was unaware that my snake was a morph...I assumed there will different breeds of snake, similar to the lowland gorilla and highland gorilla. I thought the corn was natural, just different because of hte area it lived in.
Don't get me wrong, I like colubrids too. I do have 2 of them!
