Question If you could only keep one...

I guess this is aimed more at keepers with more than a handful of animals BUT all are welcome to answer.

If, for some reason, you were forced to weed your collection down to just one of your current animals, which would you keep and why?

That is a tough one. For me, I think it would be my female South Florida Kingsnake. Her or my female Irian Jaya Carpet Python!

<b>EDIT:</b> Why? The South Florida Kingsnake because she is a big, gentle snake with a great feeding response. The IJCP because she is getting HUGE and she is one of the most beautiful snakes I've ever seen in person.

Man you make it hard to sacrafice anything in this question.
Hmmm if you said species it would be Emerald Tree Boas for me.
But you said 1 animal, then that would be my 1st Albino Boa - ZEUS - reason being the amount of time it took to finally get 1, and being my most desired and babied animal I had at the time in my collection. After trying 3 years to get Albinos this little guy brought me much joy and still does.

I got others but you did not make this easy to think out only 1, lol.

It would have to be Seth, normal male cornsnake. First snake we ever produced.

This is an old pic of him, guess I should take a recent one.

One Woma. Doesn't matter which one. But ya know, an Aru GTP is making it very very hard to decide!

Man Tim I have got to agree about the S. Florida kingsnakes. Half the time I find difficult to get the tongs out of the cage after a feeding. My male wraps the whole thing up.

As far as your question. I would keep my first box turtle Sherman. TB

My normal Ball Python, Eight. She wasn't my first snake or anything, I just seem to like her in a different way than the others.
