Re: What's your favourite snake family?

Pythons! I have had snakes for 20 years and 2 years ago I would have undoubtedly said boas, but after getting my first carpet python and then adding another a couple weeks ago that's all I look at now. The absolute stunning colors of carpets along with their difference in looks compared to a boa and how impressive they are while eating has completely won me over! I still want a nice sunglow boa sometime but for now I want to add more carpets.

Carpets changed everything for me too Clonez. They're perfect snakes imo.

Too small for about any adult snake. Can keep a juvenile in there for its first year perhaps. Most smaller snakes need at least 36x18x18, most snakes that cross 3' would rather need a 48x24x18 and length only goes longer after that.

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

Favorite family for me: Psammophiidae

By far the most interesting snake species to keep in my opinion... active, diurnal, good sight, social interactions, can cohab easily, have unique behaviors, very hardy, most stay small, very beautiful.

Only not that easy to get, and not snakes to handle as they are rear fanged and venomous (are in the same superfamily as elapids), can be finicky to get eating on ft (if at all).

Re: What's your favourite snake family?

Im new to the python family. I took one in about a 2 months ago and its the best decision I made. I originally thought I would just take her in until I could find her a good home because I had never owned a reptile before and snakes had always creeped me out. She had been living in a very small tank in a dark closet so once I got her back to my house, I immediately got her settled into a larger tank with proper lighting and heating/humidity. I swear its like she's doubled in size since I've had her. I don't care what anyone says about snakes not having feelings but its been like an instant bond between us. She trusts me and I think she's a lot happier in her new environment. I have no fear with her which blew my mind seeing as I said I would never EVER get a snake. At the end of the day, I highly recommend a ball python to anyone who is thinking about getting a snake as a pet. They're absolutely fascinating
