    Hi. I have a male anerythristic corn snake

    who has just reached 7 weeks old. I have been feeding him one small pinky every 3-4 days but now I'm thinking he might be ready for regular pinks or fuzzies. He is 37cm in length and his diameter at his thickest point (mid body) is 8mm. The thing is though, is I find he has a...

    I Do

    Along with two amphibians, I share my bedroom with a beautiful gray banded king snake. He is my buddy.  My first pet that was really all mine was a very mild tempered ball python.  I adored that snake.  I used to gross my mom out by feeding him and then grabbing my own lunch...

    I Dated An Old Flame Who Is Married

    I discovered my first love when I was 13.  We spent our summers together, that was until he had to move out of state.  I remember his good bye, it hurt me so.  He promised he would come back and find me and we would get married.  It is now 33 years later and...

    Sand Boa

    I just got a baby sand boa today. It is about 6-7 inches long. This is my first time owning a snake, but I'm excited for the experience. I don't actually know if it is male or female, but I have opted to consider it a girl. Most of my pets are boys, so I wanted to give it a girl...

    Molly, My Rainbow Boa

    I love my snake, Molly. She is more than a pet. I never was a furry critter type person, always reptiles and birds. I bought her at a reptile exposition in Kentucky, didnt really know what breed I wanted, but rainbow boa was one of them, I picked her up, decided I wanted her, and...

    Corn Snake Called George.

    We both really love our little Anery Corn Snake called George. He has just turned 2 years of age.  I am the one who feeds him and cleans him out, but my husband also loves him. We joke "I love you as much as I love George" ha-ha. They are really amazing creatures to own...

    Taaka, The Alcoholic.

    Today, Taaka and I flew on a cloud of death. I brought home two mice, Dinner and Dessert, as they were called. So I put her in the bathtub, hoping to clean her of her sins. I felt a bit rebellious, and so I fed her Dessert first. A beautiful white chocolate mouse from France, at...

    Before you guys judge me

    and say that snakes aren't pets just because they don't lick you and snuggle up with you; I'd save it if I were you beacuse I've heard it before. Ophidiophobia (Fear of snakes) is one of the common phobias along with Arachnophobia (Fear of spiders) Coulrophobia (Fear of clowns...

    Wish I Did.....

    I wish I had a snake. I think they're cute, even when no one else does. I like the adrenaline when I see a venomous mouth inches from my eyes. I want to have a small snake. One to curl around my fingers and be my slithery friend. Snakes love me, if that means anything. My Jones...

    I have a ball python named Charlie. She is so sweet and it is adorable when she yawns. She still little, only about 18 inches long and still eating pinkies. I have always loved snakes and would like to add a red tail boa and a woma python when I live somewhere with more room.

    My milksnake makes me jump.

    Before her, I had a corn snake that was the "runt of the litter" so I had to help him eat by helping him open his mouth. So I am not use to having a snake strike for its food, it doesn't scare me, but I always jump a bit when I feed her. My sister always finds it funny, her...
