Hey marisa, I am only 40 minutes south of the Peace Arch crossing into BC, see I'm practically an honorary Canadian!
My friend owns/runs www.herpetoculture.com
and a TON of other herp forum sites, but none of them have much traffic. I personally am a big Usenet user, I post heavily on rec.pets.herp and alt.pets.reptiles.snakes and sometimes alt.pets.arachnids
Also I recognize the resource that ks is, sometimes if I am seeking more input on a topic I will just go and search the archives of their forums but I rarely post there. Lots of politics, I hate that crap! I have really received a warm welcome here on ssnakess.com and am so glad I found the IRC channel
