I know I have read here a few times people own some type of reptiles. I myself own a red ear slider. But one day I would love to own a snake. But the one I love the most, Corn snakes, I can not own in my state. I was thinking of maybe a Ball Python...Does anyone own any here. I have been told before that they are pretty good snakes to own. For the most part very tame and calm. Is that true for the most part?
I trust me I know not to let them loose in the wild. i would never do that to any animal. i know tonight on the news here they are suppose to talk about some type of python that ate a house pet. DOn't know what kind.
I own a bald python. My husband has had her since she was like a couple weeks old. I have never been one to touch or hold any kind of snake, but this one has really won my heart lol. She has been very good except for the little mishaps we've had with her getting out of the cage, but for the most part, that's our fault.. I'll post a pic of her if you would like :) She's 4 ft. long and about 2 1/2 years old now.
Bald python?? lol lol there is no such thing!! That is a BALL python! :) I had two-they are difficult to get feeding, the pickiest species of snake with food, known to only eat only one color of mouse, or only eat rats and not eating anything else, only eating live or many other problems. California king snakes are a great beginner snake.
Other reptiles I just love(and own) are Crested Geckos, Leopard Geckos, Horned Lizards(horned toads), Collared Lizard, tree frogs, hermit crabs, Bahama Anole, and some I want are African fat tailed geckos, gargoyle geckos, pictus geckos, day geckos, and bearded dragons.
We have a Ball Python too! She was a rescue (of course - only rescues in my house) and YES she was hard to get eating but once we figured her out it's easy! They are great, very pretty in my opinion and easy to care for.....
Hey Doxielover,can you please show me a link to pics of your horned toad? I believe you may have the same thing as my mawmaw had. I have only seen her and her 18 babies in real life! I'd love to see yours and to know if they are the same as I'm thinking that I've seen/watched give birth. She was beautiful! :)
I believe,if my memory serves me correctly,this is similair to my mawmaws horned toad. She was absolutely wonderful! My mawmaw(she's gone now,bless her,she was the most beautiful soul on earth!)saw her(didn't know for sure it was a "her"until I saw her giving birth)in Arizona desert and had to have her! It was a hilarious situation,my daddy and uncle running accross the desert chasing this little one down and catching her,lol! Anyway,mawmaw brought her home and loved her whole-heartedly! I kept looking at her and saying,it looks pregnant mamaw,I swear it's getting bigger! Well,while I was standing right there(mamaw was in the kitchen)I started saying mamaw,she looks like somethings wrong with her,she looks like she's getting sick. Well,low and behold,she opens her mouth and out pops something....I'll be,it's a baby!!! I start yelling,mamaw,you've got(!!)to see this,she's having babies...regurgitating them it seems,lol! Anyway,she had 18,16 lived.......until mamaws house burned down shortly after......there was no momma or babies to be found while it was burning(the firemen went in looking for the mom and babies,along with mamaws little doggie. It was weird,the back door was open,no animals were to be found......no one had left the back door open upon escaping the fire...no one had even gone to the back of the house anywhere near the back door!
Sorry so long,just wanted to share my experience with the horned toad and her babies.
P.S. I don't truly remember her legs being as large(or long)as the one in this pic,but I was young too and have had so many other experiences in life that my memory may have distorted her frame/look after all these years,lol! Do you breed the horned toad?
