    Looking at your collection is always refreshing and still pushes my temptation button a bit.

    Happy New Year Zig.
    Thanks and Happy New Year bro!

    My colubrids, boas, carpets, and olive are all a breeze to deal with even though my female bullsnake can be a little testy sometimes. I wanted another large snake that would be challenge and improve my snake keeping skills. I was VERY close to adding a SD retic until I saw some amazing scrub pythons and decided to take that leap instead. He was certainly a challenge from the start and I was concerned that things wouldn’t work out for the first 18 months. After seeing your’s and Crook’s experiences I knew I didn’t want to deal with a large snake that was too difficult to handle. That first year was pretty rough but we made it. He’s a solid 7’ now and I think we’ve finally turned the corner and established some mutual trust.

    You have some amazing critters. Jewel and Sniper are two of my forum favorites and Kevin is a stud too. I really think you’d enjoy a nice chill olive python.

    Thanks J. I’m sure you feed your girl plenty. You know I tend to feed a tad on the heavier side . My girl gets a small or medium rat every 2 weeks or so. It’s weird that she’s a bit rounder than the BI but the BI is a couple hundred grams heavier. I got both the boas and the scrub all around the same time about 2.5 years ago. The Argie was a hatchling and the BI and scrub were both yearlings. You can see how much more the python has grown compared to the boas. The scrub is pushing 8’ and the boas are both about 4’.

    This was a very fun thread to look through. You have some awesome snakes! Very nice! I can't decide which is my favorite.
