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!

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.
