Colubridae because of the hoggies, corns, russian rats, indigos... and a lot of the other species!

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

This was tricky to answer. I went with pythons because that's where all the species that I'm most interested in keeping fall. When it comes to admiring from afar though, cobras are amazingly beautiful and quite impressive. And I'll also always have a soft spot for rattlesnakes and garter snakes since those are the ones that I've most often seen in the wild and since they seem so feared and misunderstood by so many people. So I could've easily gone viper or colubrid as well. All the snakes are my favourite! :P

Pythons generally because of how docile they can be and the unique patters they can have. Also because of how adventures they can be.

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

Boidae for me BCC / BCI specifically. No morphs, nature does just fine on its own.

Not even a contest. That diamond head shape, size (big but not massive), markings etc. They just really do it for me - tick all the boxes.

For photos just look at some of nightflight's photos in the Boa forum. They're as good as any you'll see in their 'normal' form.

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

I'm a huge fan of diversity, so I'd have to go with Colubridae for this one. It is the most speciose taxonomic family of snakes, and contains about 2,000 currently known species with a practically cosmopolitan distribution.

I say pythons. Great personalities, great feeders and so much variety. But man, those cobras a stunning!

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

It's all about the pythons for me, never really been a fan of boas and won't keep venomous. Not to say boas couldn't be in my future for the right pair but not right now, I'm currently in the process of getting something only 4 or 5 people literally have right now

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

I chose the pythons I know next to nothing about snakes except for the fact that I think snakes are super cool. I had a few weeks back inherited a two year old ball python and I want to learn to take proper care of him.

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

Hi I can't figure how to use this site but since I finally found a way to post a a question I will. As a new firs time owner of a two year old ball python I have many questions. First I discovered mold got rid of the wood and temp replaced with plastic bowl upside down with opening . I was referred to by pet store worker that the substrate I soak in water is good. I believe it is what caused the mold. What if I used newspaper for bedding and maybe soft towels I can wash regularly. Will I be able to put wood back after dried out and can I spray wood with clear lacquer. Looking forward to some advice please and thanks. Id also like to post a pic of my handsome guy somewhere
