    Back into the hobby.

    I grew up in the country, so all my snakes I had as a kid were wild caught. (Had a water moccasin for a while, my mom hated it.) 40 years later my wife and daughter out of the blue tell me they both want a python for Christmas. One Pomona reptile show later...
    ...yep, we've got two BPs.
