Some of my wishlist is already on deposit: a trio of Kathy Love's Okeetee corn snakes, a trio of albino (AKA reverse) Okeetee corn snakes and a pair of rosy (hypomelanistic) corn snakes.
There are some things I don't have that I really want:
1. A pair of those bright orange bearded dragons. A site I came across called them "super orange." They're just beautiful and I really love the look of the beardies.
2. A really nice pair of Blair's phase gray-banded kingsnakes. (Who doesn't want them? It's a shame they're hard to start.)
3. A pair of red milksnakes. (Yes, they're cheap, but I find them very beautiful.)
4. Some California king morphs. I like the lavender- and banana-colored ones and the 50/50 dark and light the best. Of course, there are so many morphs to chose from, it would be hard.
I could go on and on. I would love more corn morphs, perhaps a blizzard that was solid white. A savannah monitor. A rainbow boa. A tangerine Honduran milk...they're all lovely.
But as I learned when I was in aviculture, you can't have it all. I think that's especially true with intelligent parrots that demand so much attention.
The only thing that keeps me from getting a beardie is the relatively short life span of 7-10 years, although I still want one. I tend to purchase long-lived animals as pets. My snakes could live to be twenty years old. My Amazon parrot could outlive me.
