    Question What is Your Dream Reptile?

    What is your dream reptile(s) to have in your collection? If there were no constraints--money, caging, food, enrichment, supplies, veterinary care, etc.--if all of the needs of the animal were taken care of, what would you keep?

    Sooo many questions, so little time.


    Mine would definitely be a boelens python hands down. They are stunning animals and I would do nothing all day but ooh and ahh at the edge of it's enclosure while watching it.

    I think about this question very often. I listen to a lot of Morelia Python Radio and it's one of the closing questions for their guests.

    At the moment I'd have to say Oenpelli Python or maybe Australian Scrub Python, though I wouldn't turn down a Boelen's. Moluccan Scrubs are absolutely beautiful too. I've heard them called Golden Boelen's and that description makes them really appealing.

    Simalia in general are fascinating to me. Just a bit edgy for my liking though I haven't personally worked with them. No heat seeking missiles for me for now.

    A rainbow boa. The only way I would be comfortable owning one is if I could find an adult and if I had an enclosure with a running water system. I'm too paranoid to get a hatchling and I don't know how I could ever go away for a week without being afraid the snake wouldn't dehydrate and die.

    Re: What is Your Dream Reptile?

    So, apparently all of my dream reptiles fit into bins:


    • If I had a spotter on demand: the "nerd crush" big temperate constrictors (diamond python, Argentine boa, Boelen's). Don't think I'd actually want to keep a Boelen's, though. That Simalia edginess is just too much for me!
    • Mid-sized constrictors with big teeth and an even bigger price tag: rough-scale python, CBB GTP, CBB ETB
    • If they came with a magic insect vending machine: panther, veiled, and/or Jackson's chameleon
    • Technically have it already, but I'm thinking of building out a pair and paying for the genes I want will not be fun: high contrast anery BIL, ghost leopard Sonoran (yup, pure Sonoran ghosts exist!)


    And, just for fun:


    • Technically have it already, but oooooh, hey! That gene's theirs?...Wait, a pair of hets cost how much?!?: pied Sonoran (yup, the one pied boa on record is a Sonoran!)
    0.1 Sonoran Boa sigma​: "Adelita" ('19 Hypo het. leopard)
    1.0 Boa imperator longicauda: "Kuzco" ('19 het. anery)

    I've been struggling to answer this question, & since I've already had my dream reptile, can I bring him back from the dead? He was an adult rattlesnake when he was given to me, & I "only" had him around for 17 years...I'd like another 17 years with him, OK? He was about 25 when he passed away. He was a Crotalus helleri (Southern Pacific), btw.
