Sophia is adorable! Rosies are really cool snakes

I'm a huge herp fan - primarily boids at the moment, although I have some experience with fire-bellied toads, leopard geckos, bearded dragons, iguanas, and corn snakes. I currently have an Argentine boa constrictor (who I'd totally post a picture of, but she's a tad bit camera shy and the only time I can get a good picture seems to be at feeding time) and a ball/royal python. They're my babies... lol When I graduate, I'll probably end up being that crazy lady who has all the fish and giant snakes that never leaves her house.

It's funnier in Enochian.

Lol. Lucky for me I get cabin fever super easily (to the point of being sad) if I don't leave the house. Or I would turn into that crazy old pet man. Lol.

And believe it or not, snakes don't take up nearly as much room as most people think depending on what species you get, Nel3. Some species of snakes don't require hardly any space at all and are perfectly comfortable burying under their substrate rather than stretching out like others.

MattsBettas, 25??? That is crazy, I had no idea geckos could live that long :O Learn something new every day.
i know some reptiles dont require much space but i literally have no space for a tank. my 5th betta in a 3.4gKK is sitting on my dining table and i cant even put another +2.5g tank anywhere (the floor is not ideal but free space is a premium.) id love to get a corn snake but cant even accomodate a 10g, much less 20g tank.

I love reptiles, I have 3 snakes that I bought and one that a friend gave me because she couldn't take him. 4 snakes is a lot to handle, so until I'm working again I'm having my BFF is fostering Alucard so I have on less mouth to feed every week. I call them my secret pets, because only my sister knows I have them.

Daenery's was the first snake I bought. She is a beautiful female Graziani pastel. I got her from a breeder up north who was getting out of ball pythons. I had been looking into getting another ball python, as working at petsmart make me really miss my previous ball python Taurus.


Soon after getting Daenery's I decided I wanted a male, that way I could have a pair of snakes to use in photography and possibly breeding.

And that's how Alucard came into my life. He is a cinnamon het genetic stripe ball python. I feel like I was destined to get this fabulous guy. While at a reptile show I went by a fancy looking booth with incredible morphs and happened to see Alucard, I couldn't believe it! A screamer(good looking) cinnamon for only $125. I asked to hold him and instantly fell in love, I soon said I was going to buy him and handed the money over. The guy counted the money then talked to his boss, it turned out he was supposed to be $225 and someone made a mistake. luckily he was one of the most inexpensive snakes(most were $800-$13,000) and they let me take him anyway. I bought Alucard in the late afternoon and I am still stunned that no one snatched him up before me.


Previous to going to the reptile show were I got Alucard I was at a friends house. She breeds snakes and critters and I was mystified by the beauty of a full grown corn snake. Before I had only seen babies. So after getting Alucard I spent the rest of my cash budget on a female baby anery corn snake I named Lothlorien.




My last snake is Agro the male spider ball python. A friend of mine moved out of her parents house and into a apartment were she was unable to bring Agro. She asked me to take him since she new I would consider him a pet, rather than just a snake, or something to breed and make money off of. All spiders have a genetic defect called a wobble, this causes certain snakes to wobble a lot, corkscrew, and have trouble control their head and neck. Agro is pretty bad so he needs a special owner. I wasn't planning on another snake, but I took in Agro and give him lots of love and care.

All pastels have pretty similar eyes, but I've always found Daenery's to be really beautiful. When compared to my friends pastel her eyes seem a little brighter (photo comparison, Daenery's is in front) and the yellow is more vibrant.

I'm glad you like them all :D

What a pretty snake! I don't have any reptiles at the moment, but I used to have a red tail boa and plan on owning another in the future. ^.^ I LOVE reptiles. Especially snakes. I've been catching wild ones outside since I was, like, 5! xD

Not to thread jack but the leopard geckos I take care at school mated today during playtime! I warned my teacher that they were different genders. Lol. I might get a baby!
