The horror stories of boas unsupervised is VERY true. My roomie turned down a 10 foot snake, mainly because he would not ever handle it alone. It's best to have two people on board for such a snake, to avoid mishaps... Those snakes are STRONG! I had a 2.5 foot one wrap himself around my arm and squeeze...he is strong! Now imagine a 10 foot one...

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

I'd love to own a snake, particularly a pleblian milk snake. I find them so adorable with their little beady eyes and flicking tongue. But unfortunatly at the moment I live with my parents and my mom is the second most scared of snakes person I know the first was my grandma who couldn't even stand to watch them on tv.

My snake :)

Here are 2 pics of my Albino Banana California Kingsnake. Not sure on its gender yet but i say its a boy right now. He is 4 months old, and his name is Punk. He is still small because his cage is small. He sure does have a HUGE place in my heart. <3

She asked her vet about it, and they said that the boa was measuring how long its body was compared to her so it could eat her.
Creepy story nonetheless
that is creepy as hell. sounds like she was lucy in a sense that the snake didnt see a reason to actually try to eat her. i dont think id ever have the right mind to approach a boa thats 5 feet or longer much less a 10 foot one. asian vine snakes are cool but id rather not have one when i own a gecko. those snales like lizards :s.

that aside, id love to get a cornsnake but id have no place to put a 20g tank. theres a dream snake i have but its out of my skill level Bothreichis Aurifer, yellow splotch pit viper. its a beautiful misx of brich green, navy blue and yellow scaling. problem is availiblity, terrarium size and the venom. though as far as i know its a paralysing venom that isnt the most deadly in the snake kingdom.

I remember reading that any snake 8 feet or more should absolutely never be handled by one person, you should always work with someone around an animal that size. They live off of instinct and one should never let their guard down.

BUT you gotta wonder.....

3 lovely male betta still keep me company.

I can guarentee there should be 2-3 people minimal. One can handle, but the other must keep watch Same with animals like green iguanas. Not a child's pet.

lol, what can be more cudly than a large clawed lizard with sharp spines on its body with great jumping abilities. all jokes aside, they're cool reptiles but theyre not the best pets and a pest in certain American states.
