    Repticon questions

    Well folks, tomorrow morning I'll be going to Repticon in Nashville to pick up my first snake in 20ish years. I posted here a while back and got some great advice. I've since set up the tank and feel that it's ready for its inhabitant.

    Since this is my first Repticon and I will likely be overloaded with everything going on, do you have any last minute advice on what to look for in breeders? What questions should I ask before buying? Is it ok to ask to hold snakes? Do people haggle? My kids (15 and 12) are going with me and we're avid antique shop browsers so they know the rules about touching stuff. My son is pretty pumped, my daughter only wants to see the furry things.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Re: Repticon questions

    Before buying, always ask what he/she has been feeding on. And make sure to inspect the animal for mites, any signs of a respiratory infection, or any health problems. But the main thing that Iíd defenitely ask is what itís feeding on, and any other questions you have about the snake. A good breeder will be able to answer your questions, and a breeder that you probably donít want to buy from is one that wonít be able to answer your questions.

    Oh, and to another one of your questions, its definetely ok to ask to hold a snake. Most breeders will be more than willing to allow you to.

    Here he is! Thanks for your response, you were a lot of help. He's a lot more active than I expected. He's going in the tank now.

    I was at the same show and picked me up 2 new babies and some new racks. You got a beautiful one. I almost got a banana myself.
