Thumbs up Wishlist

I figured this would be a fun topic...we all know that once you get one herp, it's hard to stop. So, money issues aside. As the topic says, this is a wishlist. What would you add to your current collection if you could have all the herps you want? (I'm keeping mine to what's possible with the space I don't have to).

Personally, right now (and this changes on a monthly basis if not more)...

1 Savannah Monitor
1 Blue Tongued Skink
1 Jungle Runner (aka Amevia)
1.3 Stimpson's Pythons
1.3 Spotted Pythons
Some Ball Pythons
1 Blood Python
1 Brazilian Rainbow Boa
1 Tangerine Faze Honduran Milksnake
1 Hypomelanistic Blood Red Cornsnake
1 Black Thayeri Kingsnake
1 Rose Haired Tarantula
1 Giant Millipede

I'm sure there's more, but I don't want to take up this entire thread with my wishlist! What's yours?

Out of everything out there if I could add anything within my space limits it would be

Olive Pythons
Many many many California Kingsnakes (localities and morphs)
San Bernadino Mountain Kingsnakes (i LOVE these guys, always used to catch them at home in cali but now here up in Canada they are more than hard to find it seems!)
Mexican Black kings, I have one male would like a few females

And honestly thats about it for me! My tastes in snakes run pretty slim and cheap aside from Olive pythons! LOL I like all the colubrids really but cal kings are a fav of mine.

Some of my wishlist is already on deposit: a trio of Kathy Love's Okeetee corn snakes, a trio of albino (AKA reverse) Okeetee corn snakes and a pair of rosy (hypomelanistic) corn snakes.

There are some things I don't have that I really want:

1. A pair of those bright orange bearded dragons. A site I came across called them "super orange." They're just beautiful and I really love the look of the beardies.

2. A really nice pair of Blair's phase gray-banded kingsnakes. (Who doesn't want them? It's a shame they're hard to start.)

3. A pair of red milksnakes. (Yes, they're cheap, but I find them very beautiful.)

4. Some California king morphs. I like the lavender- and banana-colored ones and the 50/50 dark and light the best. Of course, there are so many morphs to chose from, it would be hard.

I could go on and on. I would love more corn morphs, perhaps a blizzard that was solid white. A savannah monitor. A rainbow boa. A tangerine Honduran milk...they're all lovely.

But as I learned when I was in aviculture, you can't have it all. I think that's especially true with intelligent parrots that demand so much attention.

The only thing that keeps me from getting a beardie is the relatively short life span of 7-10 years, although I still want one. I tend to purchase long-lived animals as pets. My snakes could live to be twenty years old. My Amazon parrot could outlive me.
|_ /\ |) `/ |-| /\ \/\/ |<

1.1 Arizona mountain kingsnakes (Chris Baubel and Gerold Merker)
1.1 Louisiana milksnakes (John Yurkovich)
1.2 Okeetee corns (Kathy Love)
1.1 albino Okeetee corns (Kathy Love)
1.0 hypo crimson corn (Kathy Love)
0.1 hypo corn / het for ghost (Kathy Love)
1.0 double-yellowheaded Amazon parrot
