    Re: How many snakes do you have?

    Too many to list but currently have 122 Ball Pythons after shipping 4 yesterday but that includes for sale hatchlings. Looks like 5 more clutches to go this year will hold back 10-12 hopefully odds be with us lol. Also have one Kingsnake that is my sons pet. Had a pretty good season so far when we transitioned away from Colubrids to Ball Pythons we took out time to build slowly with high quality animals. Only paired 10 this year and have 5 clutches so far averaging 8.6 eggs per clutch with 3 more to go. One absorbed and one didnt go.

    So far it looks like you either have one, or you have 11+ But i think this board is a bit bias...

    All BPs.
    And now I'm up to 10. I've told myself that no more snakes now until I get racks built for them and for the rats. And no more snakes since I need to save for a Dreamsicle.

    There's a reptile show Sunday, I'll probably get another snake.

    Just hit 7 myself, but only 1 more planned (probably some time next year).

    This spring, started shifting my focus over to education, primarily for the Scout group I work with , and a couple other youth organizations around town.

    3 BPs, along with a corn, jungle carpet, sand boa, and rosy boa. Gives me variety, plus enough animals that I can rotate them so the kids don't see the same snakes year after year

    Final snake is going to either be a Blood or a BCI, haven't quite decided yet, though I'm leaning towards a Blood.
    1.2 Ball Pythons - Super Pastel (Manasa) / Banana (Foster) / Butter Bee (Pancake)

    0.1 Abbotts Okeetee Corn (Koko)

    1.0 Jungle Carpet (Akurra)

    1.0 Coastal Rosy Boa (Volos)

    0.1 Het. Albino Kenyan Sand Boa (Hulu)

    Imo a BCI would probably be the best choice if you plan to have it around children. Bloods are awesome but can be unpredictable. If you work with them enough they can be great but their noisy attitude might scare some people at the educational programs.

    I was thinking that too...most BCI are pretty chill with handling...even the one I took in as an 'evil' yearling, unwanted for biting multiple owners; it didn't take long to build her trust & I never had even one bite in all the years I had her...she was a great cuddler & "movie watcher". And she did wonderful with public "meet & greets" too.

    Wow, I was honestly suprised by the poll results so far. I'm shocked to see that the majority only have one or two snakes. How on earth did you get one or two and stop there?

    I have felt from day one that my max number would probably be about 12, which I figured is the time and money investment equivalent of like 2 dogs. LOL But there are so many fascinating species and morphs, I am not sure I'll be able to stop when I get to that number. I guess we'll see. I'm not there yet...
    So far 1.1 balls, a Lesser, and a GHI.
    Honorable mentions: 3.0 corns, a king, a hog, a pine, and one itty bitty african house snake.
    Relic, Meridian, Solace, Eve, Cipher, Mercury, Epiphany, Symphannie, and one that still needs a name!
