Any Other Reptile Lovers?

I know there can be a big misconception towards reptiles but I have to admit I am an avid fan. I am a proud momma of a beautiful little albino rosy boa. She was the first snake I handled when I visited a friend at their reptile hobby shop and I just couldn't put her back. She is so gentle and sweet and docile, haven't had a bite from her (yet).

Here is her picture. She is still small, I bought her as a baby and her name is Sophia. Any other reptile lovers here? I am looking into getting a few geckos or maybe a bearded dragon in a few weeks once I move :)

Sophia is SUCH a beauty!!
I'm a reptile fan also, but the closest thing I can have right now are my frogs, one of whom is of questionable intelligence. lol

A close friend of ours breeds ball pythons, and we're hoping to get one after we move, or a monitor.

ive always loved reptiles, mostly snakes though i dont discriminate. its been 15 months since ive owned my first reptiles, a crested gecko. i fell in live with thier smile and appearnce and decided to get one moments after handling one in a store. i did the research and had the time/space for one and i havent regretted it once. i also love pet reptiles or any other pet that doesnt require 24/7 companionship as it fits my schedule better. im glad my gecko is relatively calm and doesnt freak out wheni go to pick him up. he does escape me when he sees an exit from my hands as i try to pick him up.

id love to get a pet snake but i just dont have the space.

Thanks Skyewillow and ThePearlFish! She is a pretty little girl.

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.
