I don't know of any breeders yet but i will try to keep you posted. If you are planning on visiting in early October there will be a reptile expo in Tinley Park. Here is the link for it... http://www.narbc.com/htm_chi/show_main.htm

Ooo I just thought of something... if there are no good breeders in the chicago area, maybe after I get a bit more experience, really learn my stuff, and most likely get out of college I can be a breeder here... I am pretty sure there would be a market and its not like it would be my sole income... grrr there are those thoughts of becoming a vet instead of a psychologist again!


What kind of herps do you keep jncoclub?

I have a ball python, colombian red tail, hog isle and a burm. Unfortunately I have to find new homes for all my ladies. My fiancť is in the Navy and we are moving to Hawaii where it is illegal to bring snakes onto the islands. Itís tearing me up to have to give them up. (Sob story on this link moving to Hawaii- seriously )

Thanks for the expo info- I may actually be able to go to that show in Tinley Park. We are leaving CT to drive to Chicago on Oct 10 or 11th (we like to drive fast and without stopping) to visit my family before we head off to Hawaii. I have never actually been to a show- I would love to see one, especially since I will have (hopefully) found new homes for my girls by then.

If you have the knowledge, time and dedication, you definitely could be a breeder in that area. I canít think of any reptile-specific shops in that area, but then again, I didnít get into herps until I moved to FL over a year ago.

BTW-I'm a communication studies and psychology major.

I have a ball, For me it was the perfect begginer snake. She ate the first day I got her and have not refused a meal since. I am hoping that the new BP baby that I'm getting this week will be the same. As for care, thoughrly (sp?) clean out the cage 1-3 times a month and your fine. Imediatly clean out the soiled area when they do deficate (sp?). I feed my BP 1 time a week with a F/T juvinile rat, usually in the middle of the week. I give her a heavy mist atleast 2 times a day, upping it to 4-6 times a day when she gets ready to shed. She usually sheds really good. So all in all it takes maybe about 8 hours of care. Thats just cleaning and feeding. Then the handling comes into play and thats as much as you want (as long as its not right after feeding her/him) And they are great to just sit with, although mine is usually pretty active , not just sitting there. She also tends to get active around 1 in the morning. Coming out of her hide and exploring her cage.

Happy Herping! Get what you love and you can't go wrong! (as long as you do your research!)

So what are you going for???? I would say ball python, because that my first snake i ever got and the only one I still gt. He eats really well. Well Ive only had a snake for a month, but know a lot from this site already.
Make A Great Choice Dark

personally I would choose the corn sanake the are easy to keep easy to feed and livly snakes. the only thing that I hate about baal python is that when they decide to stop eating there a pain in the ***.

I hold my BP for hours, then sometimes I don't hold her for more than a month (unless to take her out and feed her, or to clean her cage) So she really isn't all that time consuming!
