I must admit that I'm actually scared of snakes, but I have narrowed it down to the fact that I am scared of being surprised by them. If I can see one and know it is there, I'm fine but if it pops out at me I get scared. Or if they are really hungry and I know I have been touching rats just before gloves are a must then(or a sock)

I am getting over many of my fears. I hope to have a pet corn snake someday.

If you get a corn snake get it from a breeder. I was told corn snakes didn't bit and got mine from petco. Guess what? She was a bitter till the end. I'm thinking that was a breeding issue and plus breeders will have better colors as well. Petstores are so limited on that.

probably unaltered wild stock. i've always liked the salt-and-pepper variant (a naturally occurring color type) but they're very expensive.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

I have this great reptile shop, Twin Cities Reptiles, near me. They always have some amazing snakes there. When I went in to get my rats the other day I got to hold their newest pied ball python (normal ball python pattern with bands of pure white). Those are some pretty snakes, but with that beauty comes a heafty price tag... I want to say it was $700 for a juvenile...

Does that shop carry funky jungle geckos?

Or other cool gecko morphs?
