(Sorry so long- Iím a pro at rambling)
Thank you all for responding. I work at Pfizer in the Veterinary Medicine Pharmaceuticals Discovery dept. (No, I donít get free viagra, I work in the administration area, and I already tried to get free rats- unsuccessfully) There are tons of animal lovers here, but they are more familiar with the furry friends than scaly. I was told to get in touch with this guy Ed who has been a reptile keeper forever. He said that he has a friend who is a herpetologist at the Science Center of CT (museum) and that he thought that they would want my Hogg Isle in their reptile exhibit. (I love the idea of my snake being a little superstar in an educational exhibit!) He called me back this morning and said that the museum couldnít take her, but instead he would offer to baby-sit 2 of my snakes for 5 years. Heís doing some sort of research/study on urban islands being stuck in cities and the effects/results it produces. He thinks that the colombian boa and hogg would be great examples.

I have talked to this guy several times- he knows his stuff, has room, supplies, proper husbandry from other snakes that heís had, everything. Being that he said ďbabysitĒ, I donít expect $ from him. (eventhough I think he would have better access at gaining free rats at work than I.) I feel good that 2 of my girls will have new homes this Friday, however, there is still the unsettling feeling that I wonít have them for 5 years, and you never know what will happen in that frame of time.

I think I am going to have a hell of a time with my burmÖ.
I just found homes for my 4 snake ladies: ball python, colombian boa, hogg isle boa, and a burmese. *sniff* How I miss them so...

How do I set my laser printer to 'stun'?
