New herp stuff :)
For any fellow herpers out there...
The girlfriend picked up a new snake this weekend, a coastal carpet python. His name is Roody.
Very pretty snake .
I also set up a frog vivarium; my first true all live one. It's pretty simple for now, I just set it up overnight two nights ago...

Here's the progress so far...
There's actually some java moss and a crypt plant in there. Going to see how it works immersed.
And this was the original inhabitant: a squirrel tree frog I found at work. Unfortunately, he managed to push his way out of my screen top lid. Figures he did it the day after I tried to buy a glass top, but we were out of stock. Still no sign of him yet. I'm thinking of getting some kind of mantella or African reed frog species if he doesn't turn up.

Beautiful snake! I adore snakes and I wish wish wish I could keep one but they just get too big. If they stayed 2 feet long I'd be happy. My favorite snake I've seen in stores is the redtail boa. Gorgeous animals.

There's plenty of snakes out there that can stay at or around 2 feet if you know where to look. Maybe check out a male hognose snake. We have a male western hognose. Here's some pictures of our little guy...
Red tails are definitely beautiful snakes, though. We have 7 in our house :x. Maybe start out with a baby and slowly work your way up to handling it as he/she grows. Males will stay on the smaller range too, so keep that in mind. The smallest of the red tail boas would be the tarahunara mountain boas and the caulkers cay boas. You probably won't find them in a normal pet store, but you may be able to get online. Should be somewhere around 3-4 feet.

Thanks! I had no idea. Herps really aren't my forte. You'd think I'd know a little bit more about them, considering I interned 160 hours in the herp department at the Buffalo Zoo......

I like the frog tank too...
But you know...my snake is now at least 6' long...but she's not very thick, so she's still fine in the 33g set-up she has...she spends most of her time in her log or on top of it...not moving...
Ideally I'd like an enclosure with a tree for her to climb...but I don't think that'll be happening...55 g Goldfish Tank - 5 Fancies, 2 Dojos
25 g Tropical Tank - Celestial Pearl Danio/Mixed
