Re: What's your favourite snake family?

Colubridae! I grew up around garters, gophers,water snakes, and pine snakes and have owned corns and rat snakes also so Colubrids will always be my favorites. However my favorite snake is an Elapidae... The black mamba!

Boas! I like their size and mannerisms. I have a ball python but boas have been my favorite. Hopefully getting one soon!

Boa's hands down. I've owned a lot of snakes and Boa's have always been my favorite. I can say one thing. Never get an African Rock Python! Just my opinion. I had one and it was untamable. Downright mean!

Afroks, anacondas, scrubs and to some extent retics. Snakes you can never completely trust.

And yes afroks in particular can be xxxxing mean!

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

Pythons. I saw my first Retic when I was about 8 years old and will never forget it. 15 years later I crossed paths with a wild Retic on a jungle track in Thailand. Most impressive snake I've ever herped! I love the dragon-like appearance of full-grown King Cobras, and the beauty of Boomslangs, but I've
been bitten by enough colubrids to know I wouldn't risk handling anything venomous. Boas don't do much for me (except Rainbow Boas). Pythons are my choice; Carpets, Angolans, Timors and Retics are amongst my favourites.

Boas in general no doubt about it. And Boa Constrictors are my favourite Boas. I prefer Boa Constrictor over anything else basically. Pythons are in second place after Boas.

For me it's viperidae. I find rattlesnakes in particular incredibly amazing animals. Everything from form to function. Hinged fangs, heat sensing pits, warning system I.E.: Rattle , incredible array of venom properties and so on.

I freaking love rattlesnakes!

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

I've owned many snakes. From a vicious African Rock python to a common hog-nosed snake. Boa constrictors are by far my favorite. They are easy to keep healthy, more than eager feeders, shed with no problems if the husbandry is good, or even close to good and best of all, they are the most chilled out snakes you could want. I take them out and they move slowly and deliberately. I get them out and have no worries at all. Good around my kids and even around my dog. Maybe I've been lucky, but in my opinion, you just can't go wrong with a Boa if you treat them right. I've raised mine since they were babies and that's what they are now. My babies.

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

Ok so when I first replied back in March I didn't have much experience outside sand boas. But now that I've had my Cape House Snake a good almost 9 months, I'm leaning towards Colubridae. I have to say he is my favorite snake. Curious, shows an active interest in me, great eater. Seems smarter than my sand boa. Don't get me wrong I like sand boas but the one I have now (love him) he's not the brightest haha. Not in a bad way. It's rather amusing actually.
I like the house snake also he looks like a python without being girthy like a python. He's active and has a lot of personality. The boa is good for any days when I just wanna chill while holding a snake. Don't have to worry so much about him taking off to explore. Just have to make sure the goober doesn't roll off my hand -_-

Boas are my favourite, they are so sweet and I love their personality, I also think they have the cutest face they always look like they are smiling.
