well this is the reason i havnt been on recently

i have decided to put fish tanks to one side and go back to reptiles it was a long and debated move from fish but seems that every one in the family would prefer a nice little rep than a fish to look at lol

i can see their point you do get to touch reptiles and they become more of a pet than a display

so we went out and purchased 2 snakes

my first little fella i got was a dessert king snake called link





then i decided i wanted one of the larger species of snakes so went for the boa constricta and she is my baby bella, really friendly and happy to come out of the viv unlike the king lol





well hope all is well with every one and hope you had a nice heat wave lol

Wow, those look amazing. Are you by any chance going to keep them till they're full grown?

yes i do plan on keeping them for approximatly 20 years or so

bella will be in the region of about 10 ft

and link will be about 5ft link isnt a definite due to being very snappy and not actually what i bought was supposed to be a different snake but seems the shop had him labeled wrong, but am trying to calm him down slowly but he is in shed at the mo so got to leave him alone

Nice, good luck Smile I love snakes, here's some pictures I took on a school trip
It was a green vine snake, one of the teachers caught it and this was when we were taking it out for release

Dont know if you are still on here kb, but I was watching a programme the other night about rescuing animals in Florida and there was a couple who had a huge python in a tank in their living room.

They had a great set up for it, looked after it well and everything - the tank ran nearly the full length of their room, but the python was huge and the wife was getting scared of having it out of the tank at all - it was a beast!

They rehomed it to a local animal park I think.
