    Default Yet another new snake!


    0 Not allowed!
    I am friends with our local Petco manager. We were out to dinner last Friday and he told me they have a Blood Python that was too mean to be sold as a pet. He said this snake has bitten everyone in the store more than once. That being said...He said he would give me the snake as an "adoption". I happily agreed to take the animal and now have myself a ferocious little Blood Python!

    He's had a go at me on several occasions, but has not hit me yet. I like to think I have a little more snake keeping experience than the local Petco employess. : )

    Anyway...Here he is! What a little monster!

    Thanks! He's a little pisser!

    To be honest there are times we struggle a bit, but it's so worth it. My wife and I have decent jobs, which helps with the money a little. We're planning a fimily now though...I'm nervouse how that will impact things. We take it day by day.

    Thats what we did when my son was on the way.All of the large snakes/monitor cages and heat devices were on lockdown.Eventually four years later,with some parental hands on education,all is fine.And as you know with reptiles,they are very low maintenance."under correct care"Although there was a playing in the oscar tank problem.

    Thanks for the support!

    The reptile room is on lockdown all the time as it is. They are in their own locking room. For security on several levels. 1. It keeps escapees somewhat contained. 2. It keeps the cats out...We have a 25lb Bengal cat who is too smart for his own good. 3. It also keeps unwanted people out of the room...Even visitors I don't like in there w/out me. Our snake collection is now in the tens of thousands of dollars and I take all precautions possible.

    My biggest worry with a child is the Electric Cat tank. I've been trying to think out a locking mechanism.

    P.S. I would love to see the Snakes and Monitors!

    Nice-looking snake. I know someone who keeps snakes and lizards, and she was hoping for a blood python to breed with a ball python for a super ball python.

    The probability of being watched is directly proportional to the stupidity of the act

    I have contemplated breeding the Blood to my Super Dwarf Retic. The Super Balls are cool too!
