    Tinley NARBC Wishlist (POLL)

    Alright folks, I have a feeling I know the direction this poll will go in, but Tinley is coming up fast and I have a decision to make about what will (hopefully) be coming home with us!

    While we're generally slowing down on adding snakes to our home - I think we have the time/space for 2 more max at this point - Tinley is such a fantastic opportunity to see and acquire some amazing animals that coming home empty handed would feel like a missed opportunity, lol

    At this point I have two wishlist snakes remaining:

    - An 8 Ball BP (could also do a Super Cinny, but would prefer the 8 Ball)
    - A carpet python (most likely Bredli or a granite IJ. A Diamond would be amazing but I've heard they can be finicky).

    So if we're able to find quality examples of each at Tinley and the price is within our budget, which should we go for?
    末末末末末末末末末末末末末末

    Ball Pythons:
    1.0 Pied - Clark
    1.0 Pastel Vanilla Super Stripe - Sunny
    0.1 Dragon Fly - Buffy
    0.1 Pastel Vanilla Yellow Belly - Cher
    0.1 BEL ( Mojave/Lesser) - Arya
    0.0.1 Normal - Norm

    0.1 Dumeril's Boa - Memphis
    0.1 Peruvian Long-Tail Boa - Artemis
    0.0.1 Corn Snake - Mushu

    A Bredli would be on my list but then again Im pretty biased. I just enjoy the larger size and ferocious feeding response of carpets. Maybe Ill see you there, Im thinking of going.

    you'll find more carpets than a beep morph so specific like an 8 ball (if anything, id buy them before you ).

    it's always good to go with an idea and budget in mind!!!

    i be there with my fanny pack on saturday!!! ill be sure to post what im wearing that morning in the Oct Tinley thread so you can look for me.

    Re: Tinley NARBC Wishlist (POLL)

    I've only had a carpet python (Yafe) for a week now (and there was a major FEDEX delay, and he got sick because of it - RI - etc.) but he's a pretty personable little guy (and is healing well and quickly). He's beautiful too and I love that he's mostly arboreal. Not sure what you already have in your collection, but so far, and he's not even healthy yet, he seems like a keeper.

    I love my BP, Shayna, and I'd always wanted an Albino BP and she's Albino Spider and is a beautiful and wonderful snake. She's docile and friendly, and eats well during the spring and summer, etc. However, from a pure personality standpoint, I love my BCI the best and I have a feeling, Yafe isn't going to be far behind.

    Plus, Yafe, even not feeling well, spends half his time out so I can see him. I almost never see Shayna unless the lights are out and it's near food time.

    Again, nothing against BP's. I adore Shayna and wouldn't trade her for anything. However, having a Boa, corns, and a Carpet Python now (he's albino and a cross between an IJ and a Darwin), I am becoming drawn to the more outgoing snakes, both from a handling perspective and a viewing perspective.

    I think I'll always have a BP in my collection, but not super excited to get another one at the moment. Of course, I am pretty much out of space and only have one animal left on my "dream reptile" list and the Lacey Act scares me and CT law doesn't allow it (1/2 dwarf Burmese), so it's not happening.

    In any event, and back to your "problem" at hand, if you have room left for two more reptiles. I would lean towards a carpet, but I would not plan on getting both at the show this year, if it were me. I would plan on getting the best animal you can find, either BP or Carpet, and then getting the next one down the line. You have to picky with only two spots left!

    Of course, who I am kidding, if I wanted a carpet and BP, I would end up with both at the show!!!!!!!

    Lol, I'm picturing a contest where we zoom around tables trying to be the first to nab the black pastel/cinny - and by zoom I mean slowly nudge through the hordes of people.

    I'm strongly leaning towards a Carpet, but I have to fully convince my husband, who doesn't really like the look of Bredlis, whereas that's one of my favorites. He's content with getting another BP, and while I love our BP's, I don't know if we need another. I think things will feel complete with a Carpet.

    Re: Tinley NARBC Wishlist (POLL)

    I get where you're coming from. We have 6 BP's and they're awesome, but I don't feel a strong urge to add another. We also have a corn snake and 2 boas (Dumeril's and longicauda). The boas are sooo cool. I know my limits, size-wise, and a CP would fit right in. And I love the idea of a semi-arboreal snake. The zoo we go to has Carpets in the Australia building, and I love looking at them.

    Also, I've followed Yafe's threads and I'm so happy he seems to be doing better!

    Re: Tinley NARBC Wishlist (POLL)

    I voted for both because I知 weak...I致e added 4 bp痴 this year. In reality, I壇 only add both if you already have the setups before the show...or at least temporary quarantine cages.

    Of my 11 snakes, 6 are bp痴...I love the color morphs which is apparent in my collection: normal, albino, pied, lemonblast, blue-eyed lucy, and dragonfly. They池e all just pets, so it doesn稚 matter to me if anything is breeding compatible. That said, if you look in any of my ball cages, there are the sheets I use as substrate, a water bowl, and hides...rarely do I see the snakes unless I take them out. Of my other 5 snakes, the only ones regularly visible are my Colombian redtail boa and my female corn. My Colombian rainbow and Solomon Island ground boa are occasionally out, and my male corn impersonates my bp痴 with the empty cage look.

    I had some carpets years ago: Irian jaya, coastal, jungle, and a jungle x coastal (REALLY regret giving him up, he was a doll). All four of them were easy to handle and were great display snakes, always out and about exploring or just hanging out. I want to add a couple more animals over the next year or two, and I致e seriously considered getting another carpet because they were so much fun to handle and watch. My short list also includes a Cuban boa...if I can ever find one again.

    Voted for both but availability is a real question. I have never been to a reptile show so have no idea what one is like. I imagine the carpet will be much easier. Looking forward to seeing what actually transpires. Have fun.
