My 7ft Guyanan red tail female, ranks way up there. She is sweet, and so docile, a real lady and enjoys TV as well.
My Dumeril's are close. Sweet disposition, not too eager to go exploring, and so beautifully marked. Seem to enjoy being handled.
However the Hog Island Boas are my all time favourites. Amazing disposition. Beautiful colour schemes (nature at it's subtle best) and a joy to handle. They have just about everything going for them. I recommend Hogs to anyone who is restricted to only one or two snakes.

Well, My definite fav is the pueblan milk snake with black milks catching up fast.
Pueblans are great and curious snakes. My female likes to watch who ever is in the room. She'll be on the same side of her enclosure as the person in the room.
My black milks are as docile as a puppy and watching their growth rate explode and the imminent color change is quickly making me facinated with them.


Got Milks!

I see the snakes, seem too be more popular then there 4-legged relatives. And I can see why, I would have too say Iím more of a snake person. I love all my snakes, especially ones Iíve had for years. But if I were too pick a favorite right now Iíd have too say my only 4-legged ones would win it. My 2 Pts are Great things, I havenít had them too long but the intelligence and character of them amazes me. As well, I picked up a whites a year or so back just because I decided too try out an amphibian for a change. I ended up with a Gorgeous Whites, and they really developed great personalities. So even though I enjoy snakes , the Pts win it for character and just for being different.

Reticulated Python. I used to be really into hots, and that's totally changed since I got a Retic. They are so allert, and just an incredibly beautiful snake. Their irridecences in second to none. Feed response, strength, intelligence, these are amazing snakes and easily my favourite.
Shop smart, shop S-Mart!

not fair....

I can't choose just lemme break it down this way...

Favorite snake: Amazon Tree Boa. So many colours, so much attitude, amazing speed and just plain jaw dropping to watch cruising in the branches at night. This snake always demands my full attention when working with it and I enjoy the challenge.

Favorite lizard: Crested Gecko. Alot of personality, and cute as hell.

Favorite amphibian: Phyllomedusa sp. (bicolor, hypochondrialis or savaugei). These frogs are just out of this world. My room is filled with their nightly calls. You know your a herp nerd when your awaken at 3 a.m. by a chorus of monkey frogs and you roll out of bed to watch them and offer them more food

Favorite invertebrate: I enjoy watching all my T's, but it's always a hoot feeding my A. geniculata sling, it's an eight legged feeding frenzy and it's always ready for more

I would normally go with my leos, but when it comes down to one herp only in our collection I would have to say our red Nigerian uromastyx. He is so fun to watch, especially when he sees us coming in with food. Next is the leos, because every single one is so different in character.

Favourite is without question my veiled chameleons. They aren't the best 'pet' lizard, but they definately take the cake in interestingnessness.... With the eyes, the feet, the tails, colours, tongue, variations in species and habitat requirements. I love everything from the cage setup you need for them to how they pretend their a leaf. Amazing animals.

Best pet lizard though has to be leopard geckos, just because of their behaviour and that you can house them in colonies. Interesting little gaffers.

1.1 Veiled Chameleons : 1.1 Crested Gecko : 0.1 Pictus Geckos (looking to trade or sell $25) : 1.0 normal leopard gecko - 0.1 tang 100% het bliz leo - 0.2 bliz leos (All leopards for sale/trade) : 1.0 Leucisitc Texas Ratsnake (Looking to trade for Crestie or pygmy chams)

Well, my favourites are boids and monitor lizards.

Among species I have personally kept:
Favourite snake: Black (Olive?) African House Snake. They don't seem to be very popular, but they're hardy, great eaters, and great breeders. Nothing beats solid black with shimmering blue irridescence in my book. I know it's not a boid, but it has the same catlike pupils and looks somewhat like a slenderer version of one. If anyone knows anyone who breeds or sell any, please leave me a message by the way ;P

Favourite lizard: Savannah monitor.

Out of species I've never kept but want to get most:
Snake: Green Tree Python (with bluish hues)
Lizard: Yellow ackies
1.0 Pastel Ball Python, 1.9 Normal Ball Pythons, 0.1 African House Snake, 1.0 Savannah Monitor, 0.0.1 Argentinian Horned Frog

Hmmm, that's hard. It would be a tie between my Amazons and my Spotted. I love them both equally for different reasons. The Amazons give me a challenge, they don't hesitate to bite at me when I'm annoying them (like helping them remove bad shed), they really know how to put me in my place!

My Spotted is so docile and gorgeous, and her enthusiasm with food items is amazing. She was my first snake and I don't regret the choice one bit. She's never given me any problems and she puts up with my cat staring at her enclosure.

"A rattlesnake that doesn't bite teaches you nothing."

My current favorites are my Mandarin rat snakes. They're just beautiful.
For 4 legged herps (not keeping any currently but have and will one day when I don't have to travel so much for work)- Chinese Crocodile Lizards, Shinisaurus crocodilurus! My all time favorite lizard.
