I have no problem with taking in free animals but I have to take into consideration the other animals I have first... Last thing I need is a sick boa passing something on to my other boas, sure there's quarintine proceedures, but some animals can be carriers and never show a symptom of an illness and while I try to keep things seperate, there's always a chance of cross contamination.

As for taking care of 20 adult snakes or even sub adult, it definetly is an experience, and the time involved can be surprising. record keeping, cage cleaning, feeding. never mind treating for mites, bad sheds, etc.
