I caught my first snake when I was six. A baby northern water snake. Unfortunately for the snake I kept it in a jar of water and it drowned. I still feel bad about that and that was 40 odd years ago. Stupid kid! I've gotten much better now.

I caught all sorts of snakes, lizards, frogs, toads, salamanders, and turtles as a small child and kept some of them as pets (rough green snakes, eastern king snakes, eastern garters, snapping turtles, bullfrogs, fence swifts and race runners). I have no idea what the first one I kept was... My parents really hated me keeping snakes in the house though, because they always excaped what ever jury rigged container I tried to hide them in, and my father was terrified of them. My first purchased snake as an adult in college was a black rat snake.

A firebelly newt, I was about 12 yrs old or so. It escaped though, one of my younger siblings opened the cage and let it out or took it out to play with and let it loose, never did find it.

First snake was a corn snake, then on to Balls.

My first herp was a Pueblan Milk Snake. So of course, she was whippy, and musked a lot, but calmed down soon enough, and is now the sweetest little snake, and SO pretty.

I just couldn't resist her when I saw her one day at the pet store, so I researched everything I could find on milksnakes, and bought her!
