Hi!

Hi
Names Justin from greenwood Indiana looking into buying a snake recently got back into them only ever owned 1 and it passed away and I have pretty much forgotten everything there is to know about snakes so I'm here for questions mostly about buying and I can not figure out where to post my questions on this forums so I guess I'll start here
I'm wanting to buy a corn snake the problem is the next reptile show here is in 2 weeks are there reputable websites I can order from if so can someone please link me then?
Thanks!!

Re: Hi!

Welcome to sSNAKESs!!

Don't rush your purchase, go to the show. Read up beforehand to get some knowledge in tour back pocket, and beware the "know-it-alls" at the show. Snakes at the show might seem high priced, but when you figure in shipping it's about the same; also you get to handle to see if the snake is "bitey" and gauge the overall health. Stay away from "scaleless" snakes!

Re: Hi!

Can you elaborate on "stay away from scaleless snakes"?

Re: Hi!

Maybe I was a bit brash with that comment, maybe it's more of a personal opinion, but the snake is not normal. Sure, morphs aren't normal either, but that's only a coloration change. A scaled snake isn't as vulnerable to damage like a scaleless snake would be...I mean, can you bandage a snake if it gets cut? Can you live feed and prevent teeth or claws from doing damage?

No offense to anyone who has one, but they're just plain ugly, like a hairless dog or cat...the skin is all wrinkled, and the colors are muted. Baldness in humans is okay, but a snake?

But, to each his/her own...beauty and the beast, etc...we fall in love with the ugliest things sometimes. Like, my first girlfriend for example...

Re: Hi!

lol I didn't think you were too brash I just didn't understand why like if they were automatically pre dispositioned to get certain lung infection or something of that sort but no I'm not the type to bug a scale less snake lol but I appreciate you taking the time to post and explain your reasoning behind it!
