Bullsnake is my favorite species in my rather meager collection. I frequent a reptile zoo as visitor and occasional volunteer, and even there in the midst of hundreds of species, I gravitate towards the bulls. I like that they are active, small enough to be handled, large/strong enough to be impressive, absolutely beautiful, voracious feeders, and with a healthy dose of attitude to boot. I'm planning on getting two more babies this year.

Hard choice I love my Balls though. Even though they can be a pain in the but I do love them for the temperament. I like the bloods but I just adore my BP's.

I've been really lucky with my herp hobbying, and in the last year I've worked with probably 25 different species, and have learned a lot. As for picking my favorite, that's really hard to do, because they all have qualities that really impress me.... I love corns for their docility and handeability.... I love my BCIs for their appearance, personality, size, and strength.... I love bloods for their incredibly impressive size and utter honesty. I like my Taiwan beauty because he is so pretty and SO active.

But for some reason, the ones I get attached to the most seem to be my common boa constrictors... all 7 of them. (And more on the way.) I think if I was somehow forced to only keep one species, that would probably be it.

Favorite herp: Snake
Favorite Snake: Hog Island Boa
Why: I think they are the most beautiful looking snake out there. I love the markings of a Boa Constrictor. Now take those markings add the natural hyponess of a Hog Island and pack it all in a small package and to me you have the perfect snake.
Close second would be turtles. I started with a turtle when I was just a kid. I'd love to own a box or a russian tort but I just don't have the space to do it the way I would want to. Rather than doing it half way I'll just go with out.

Well I have a very limited base to draw upon. I have only keep three species: Veild Chameleon, Ball Python and Crested Geckos. I would have to say that my fav would be cresties becuase of their personalities and that they come in many different colours/patterns but my BP is a close second.

My fav two snakes are my burm and my White lipped python.. the burm for her temperment and personality, and the white lip for her beauty, irridescence and pur attitude.

I haven't kept too many species either but my favorite would have to be cresties(I got 5 new ones today).... but I do live in a town that does not allow boas or pythons.
It's not that I'm lazy; it's that I just don't care.

Well I work with Kings, Balls, Milks, Indo Tree Boas, and Beauties. Right now, I would have to say for the entertainment, The Vietnamese Blue Beauties have to be my faves. But if I just want something to chill out to, the Kings are great handlers

My fave snake (out of all my snakes) would have to be my w.hognose, such a little show off, great size, handles great, and is *usually* a good eater.

I absolutely adore my blood, balls and corn! in about that order.

I don't have any 4 legged herps, but if I did I would have a blue tongued skink, and that is my fave one!lol
