    Hahahaha, if it was SOLELY my decision my number would be significantly North of 10. I mean, there are at least 10 more species I want, never mind individual animals, hahaha.
    But, alas, I do have Katie to keep me in check. And since she was "afraid" of snakes before I came along but is now "ok" with them I don't want to push her too far.

    I do make crap money too, so that's a legit limitation as well.

    Is it just me or did the option of picking 0 just disappear from the poll? If so I guess you have to have at least 1 snake to vote.

    Well just now, my boyfriend (who is weary of snakes, but got me mine as a gift) was watching me browse MM and he goes

    "if I had a snake, I would breed them."



    I'd never though I'd hear him say that!

    There does seem to be this very interesting bell curve happening here. A lot of folks that come on here are new and usually only have one snake... but most that stick around have (or have had) upwards of at least 10 or more over the years. I would imagine if your sample included everyone in the hobby, those with 1-2 animals would far, far outweigh those with 10+.

    I've had my one snake for 5 years, been on the forums since 2018, so I guess you can say I'm one of the new ones. I intend on only ever having that one snake as he is all I need, Crowley is just the perfect little ball python. I might be one of the rare ones that's okay with one snake. I guess adopting my moms parrot just ensured that I will only have that one snake as that parrot is just so much work that I don't need anymore pets. The parrot is very demanding and I love having Crowley at the end of the day to calm me down from all the hectic macaw things that happen in a day (the bird is very bitey). That being said I'll always be good with just Crowley as my only snake but once he's gone I might get another one if it doesn't hurt too much, I'm glad I don't have to think of that soon as he is only 5 years old.

    Around 10 years ago, I had 12: 8 ball pythons, a bull snake, 2 RTBs, and a milk snake... As well as a beardie, three leopard geckos, 6 crested geckos, and a gargoyle gecko. It was a lot to take care of, but I was young, newly single, and making crazy good money for my age lol. Nowadays, I'm content with my 1 BP, 1 RTB, 1 beardie, and 1 leopard gecko - too much time working on a career and working on a family and working on a marriage and working on a new house lol

    Re: How many snakes do you have?

    I used to think everyone was crazy with the "can't just have one" stuff( been silently watching for years now. And just finally joined) and have been content with our two normal for about 8 years. Until here recently, now I'm building a rack for the 12 snakes we are adding to work towards a couple projects. Funny how things can change
