Lightbulb Advice?

Well everyone I want a snake, I want something moderately inexpensive, and does not require a super amount of time. I want something that i can handle but can deal with not being handled all the time. I want something that will NOT get over 8ft but at least 4ft. I want something colorful with a pretty pattern, I really dont want a python or boa maybe a colobrid like a rat or cornsnake but I'm open to any and all ideas. If you know a breeder I can buy from plz provide an e-mail or webs-site I can get a hold of and maybe a site with care-sheets or what not. Thanx ahead for everyone that leaves suggestions.

Hey Thorn,

I might be a little partial, but there is a great variety of kingsnakes, that would fit the bill. They are inexpensive, and easy to care for.

Good luck on your quest

Jim

Sorry to ask this to but,I need advice on field herping. I live in the couyntry with an extensive forest behind my house complete with a water creek. I go out looking for animals all the time but yet to have seen anything so I was hoping I could get some general advice on where to look and some signs that there might be snakes or other herps in that area. Some ways to maybe attract herps or you know just genral rules of field herping. If it helps any I live kinda on the borderline of east and west texas in a town called Big Spring near midland/odessa two hours south of lubbok. Thanx ahead for any help anyone can give and please do post.
