Ball Python.... (good snake to begin with)

15 gallon tank.... (10 will surfice if you cant afford 15 gallon)
the bigger the snake the bigger the terarium needs to be)

and also the bigger the cage the more it will grow, in other words if the cage is to small they wont grow as fast, depends on how fast you want to grow...

the temp needs to stay around 80....

Don't buy any snake that costs more than 50 bucks until you have made it thur a year or more of experience with a cheap snake.
and buy them young not a old big snake.

Hey whats up broseph!! I would recommend a king snake or a corn snake dude. You could easily start off with a ten gallon tank, a heat source, a water bowl and a hide box.

Heres a pic of my first snake. His name is Zeus.

Just keep on reading and reading and also do lots of research on whatever you choose. keeping a reptile is a full time commitment bro. It takes alot of work.

Always get a cage that is adequate enough to hold yur reptile. It will live a short miserable live if it is left in a small cage!!!

getting a reptile, or animal fo rthat matter, based on price is bull. obviously we cant afford anything but getting a cheap one in case it dies (i call that teh goldfish syndrome) is a really bad idea. there isnt much reason any animal should die in someones care. teh biggest killer is ignorance, followed by cheapness. nto dissign anyone reptiles are awsome pets. but base your decision soley on the love for the animals and if your able to *properly* care for it.

in general the animal is the cheapest part.

10 gallon tank for a 4' ball aint good...

Like I said it would be one miserable animal. SWM just make absolutely sure yur capable of properly caring for yur animal before you purchase it. Otherwise yull end up with wasted money and a dead snake :nonono:

I purchased 2 corn snakes last week as some of you know.
I have pictures of the type from stock photos, not my particular ones though.



That is a Butter corn snake. I changed my mind at the last minute and didnt go with the snow and sunglow because the offspring would have been plain amelanistic with dirty sunglow appearance.
I purchased 1 male and 1 female. They are butters het for amber and caramel.
I also put a down payment for 2 ball pythons.
1 male 1 female Normals het for albino.
I wont receive those till Christmas.
The corns are shipping tomorrow for me to pickup up from my local DHL center.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?
