Snakes vs Lizards :)

Which do you prefer? and why?
If you have both, what were you into first? And why did you get the other?


My answers:

My first was a bearded dragon. Lizards were/are my love. I have in my personal "pet" collection: 5 bearded dragons, 6 leopard gecko's. ( all pets/breeders ) and their babies which will be sold.

Now I have 4 snakes.

Damn you Simon Fung


I gave Simon a ride to an expo, not so long ago, what, about a yr maybe...( last fall's one I believe ) and he invited me in after the expo. Needless to say, I went home with a cute lil baby amel corn. Such a sweetie. Unfortunately the baby passed on, but Simon offered me another. >( what a horrible influence. LOL

and that's what got me into snakes.

I got my first corn, and while at Simon's, I fell in love with the BRB. Came home and did tons of research on them, and ended up with my "Promise", also from Simon. Now I'm onto the Boa's Gotta love a boa. The smaller boa's for me anyways. I don't have the ability to keep the bigger ones, or I would....but I know my limits


what prompted this thread, is that for the past week I've been dealing with some crappy withdrawl effect ( legal meds LOL ) and been unable to do alot. Which includes time to tend to my herps.

In times of illness, I definately have to say that snakes are sooooo much easier to deal with. They aren't gonna die if they miss this weeks meal, whereas my baby dragons, don't feed em for a few days and they would suffer. It was soooooo hard tending to the lizards. I am so behind in it. The snakes, so easy. Even after a wk, all I had to do was: grab snake, remove newspaper, wash tub, fresh paper, fresh water, return snake. Easy easy easy.

Snakes are definately IMHO, alot easier than lizards.


I would not give up my lizards. nope nope nope. They have more personality than snakes, and are more "pet" than snakes.

so which do I prefer? I do not know. I prefer the easiness of snakes, and the pet qualities of lizards.
Never argue with an idiot, they will drag you down to their level then beat you with stupidity
