J.J -- yeah, ball pythons are beautiful
40 years -- holy crap that's a long time! And here I was getting nervous about my leos living until they're 20
They're definitely one that I'm considering -- although I think they get a bit bigger (girth wise) than I'd like... their looks just might win out over that reservation though
The spotted pythons look pretty cool too -- not as stunning in looks, but the size and everything else looks pretty good... And there were definitely some nice looking garter snakes on those websites... I like the size of the rosy boas, but I don't know if I like the look of the stripes...
