    How many snakes do you have?

    Just curious on how many snakes you guys all have. I always hear how you can't just have one but for me all I need is my 1 little Crowley and he's all I need. I'm posting this in the BP section but when counting your snakes it can be any kind, not just BPs. We'll keep it to snakes for this one so no counting your reptiles with arms/legs.

    I try to maintain a collection between 55 and 75, numbers always change between proven animal that I let go and new additions and holdbacks, that's my permanent numbers during breeding season add 100 to 200 animals.

    I have 4 different species (that I work with) so those are not all BP.

    So a relatively small breeding group that I am comfortable with maintaining by myself without getting burned out.

    5 snakes: bp, king, Dumerils boa, Children python and woma. May plan to add a gray banded king or another colubrid in the future.

    Re: How many snakes do you have?

    I just have my 1 ball python, Dex, and I definitely feel the same about how he is enough
    Although I can see how it would be fun to have more species if I had the time (and experience bc I think white-lipped pythons are SO cool)

    Just 2, my BP and now my BCI. I don't have any intentions of adding more at this point. In fact, I will probably sell my Exo Terra once Doc gets moved into a PVC enclosure.

    So you have one tenth of an Argentine Boa? Just kidding, I'm sure you meant to say one.
