Favorite herp: Snake
Favorite Snake: Hog Island Boa
Why: I think they are the most beautiful looking snake out there. I love the markings of a Boa Constrictor. Now take those markings add the natural hyponess of a Hog Island and pack it all in a small package and to me you have the perfect snake.
Close second would be turtles. I started with a turtle when I was just a kid. I'd love to own a box or a russian tort but I just don't have the space to do it the way I would want to. Rather than doing it half way I'll just go with out.
