Quick Question


I have gained quit a bit of knowledge since I joined however
I cant seem to find any info on some of the herp lingo...
such as;
What is all the 1.2, .2.0 infront of the type of snake mean

and what does het mean

any other acronyms/short forms would be helpfull aswell


P.S. As per thread below last show I bought a veiled chameleon for my wife and another leopard gecko for one of my kids this show a bought a Boa (B.B.C. ?) for myself.

I am looking forward to less questions and more participation as soon as I get the hang of this.

I also learned how to post- some of my pets are in the gallery

Dont worry it does get really confusing the first # is male and the second # is female. Say I had 2 male snakes and 1 female snake I would do this 2.1 snake.
Het means the herp has the genetics for a type of morph
eg albino or snow.
Other lingo well I dunno I just go with the flow lol.

Oh, and if you see 1.2.1, the third number means "un-sexed".

And as far as other lingo goes, if YOU are wondering, I guarantee that many others are too, so don't be afraid to ask. We've all been there

How are the new herps doing?

Thanks...the new herps are all doing well, although it is at times a bit nerve racking "Training" the new baby boa with his hissie fits and all.

I am looking forward to moving next month and setting up everything anew
and perhaps looking into some breeding...Geckos first
