    Greetings from TX

    I've been lurking as a visitor for a while and learning a lot from this site, so I figured I should finally register! But I'd feel weird dropping into someone else's thread as a stranger with 0 posts to my name and I don't have any specific questions to go ask at the moment, so I might as well do an introduction instead. Haven't used a forum in a while so I feel awkward about it, oof.

    I've only been owning my two snakes for a bit over a year (I did casual research long before that; I've always loved them and just wasn't in a place where I was ready to own any yet) but I hope to add a third this September! At the same time as I upgrade my enclosures, which I'm excited about. I'm mostly a colubrid person but there's for sure a couple pythons and boas that I want to get my hands on.

    Welcome!

    I sympathize with the lurking... and the wanting more snakes.

    I've now gotten 17 across 9 species, so there is a lot of variety around for sure.

    What ones do you already have?
    Post some pics! (the app tapatalk is what I prefer, if you haven't seen that yet)

    Where in TX are you from?
    I'm up around DFW.

    Not to diss on the classic BP

    A snow corn is on my dream list (or a stripe snow or blizzard... one of the white ones!)

    I've got quite the motely crew. I think I made a thread on the snakes at least back near the new year and put up pictures of most of them.

    Thanks! I almost got an Okeetee male but I was told that she had the better disposition and I'm biased towards female animals anyway... so I got her, and I'm glad I did because white snakes really are gorgeous.

    Ha, I picked mine before I knew corns changed color, so he went from very dark to super vivid orange and red. I ended up with more males than females to start, but they're all great animals regardless.

    As another "mostly-colubrid" person here, I wanna welcome you to the site. I've kept BPs in the past but not currently. I do have a rosy boa & an Aussie
    spotted python (as my "token boids"), but otherwise I keep mostly rat snakes these days. No matter, they're ALL cool- no more "lurking", this is a friendly forum.
    And your pets are lovely, btw.
