Re: Herp Lingo :)

I agree it is a good idea, there are a few questions that pop up over and over again, thing is tho, even with an exhaustive list some people will just ask rather than go look.

Re: Herp Lingo :)

Personally I don't think it would hurt to try I know as I learn new things I'll slowly but surely add them.

Hopefully after awhile I can remake the thread into a large comprehensive post that will be much less confusing and readily accessible

BRB = Brazilian Rainbow Boa

Anyone shed some insight on what 'hot' stands for? All I know is that it's in reference with venomous snakes.

Edit: Oops, didn't reload before I posted to check for new posts D; Jen beat me <3 Last post I'd seen was the last one Dshin made to Rob.

Re: Herp Lingo :)

Snakes are venomous rather than poisonous. A venomous animal will fill you wi venom by biting or spraying venom. A poisonous animal kills you when you eat/ingest it or its byproducts.

I think the term HOT comes from them being "too hot to handle"
