    I've always felt like there were quite a few women on the forum and I've seen quite a few ladies at shows, although it seems like there are more women making purchases at shows now.

    That's one thing that seems to be changing too, at shows anyway. When I first attended reptile shows, some vendors literally would not talk to me or acknowledge me standing there, as if I were not interested in spending actual money on a snake. I would have to get their attention, as they passed me by to talk to guys who walked up after me. Now they are more quick to ask me if I'm interested in an animal. I like it.

    Re: 2017 Gender Poll!

    Granted I am young, and I haven't seen much change since this is my first time keeping, I am a female and have noticed quite a fair amount of other girls who are into the hobby also. It's quite interesting! In fact, the only people who have not shown any interest in my ball python after showing pictures were all males.

    1.0 here. I vend at shows and it wouldn't surprise me to see a near 50/50 split. Doesn't seem to be more of one than the other from what I've seen.

    To avoid any politically correct issues, the poll should probably ask for our sex.

    Re: 2017 Gender Poll!

    I am a male.

    ...and speaking of which, life would be easier if there was a dating site for reptile keepers. Occasionally, I'll be talking to a girl and I get to the point where she asks me what my hobbies are.....and I honestly answer.....only to never get another response LOL!
