Here is a great article on the subject posted on VPI's website:
It is an interesting read... the only thing that I don't like is that experience doesn't always lead to education...
some people who argue don't even know how to spell experience, yet argue about how much of it people can have.
I am by no means an expert, or even close. But I do read/research everything that I can find on snakes and my collection has grown tremendously as I have found which species would be great for me. I am also now just beginning to work on the experience thing.
I always take things with a grain of salt, because the internet is full of BS as well.
PS, I used to look for 'experts' based on how many posts one person may have... but as Mykee has pointed out, someone can have a TON of posts, yet the majority of them are worthless.
