Talking Newbie with passion

Hey you guys,

Im Pete Bonza, will be surfacing around here as Bonza later on as my account activation hasnt got through the gazillion firewalls on the university account yet so im usung this account to get started (hopefully this wont annoy any of the mods)

so yea im Bonza, and iv always wanted a snake however my mother has always said no, however having worked at West Midlands Safari Park for a few months has fanned the flames of passion towards our scaley friends.

so, in short im looking for my first snake, i like corn snakes however i would be happy to listen to other suggestions about what i could have insted (maybe even a lizard!)

I think im clued up on what i need to make a good viv but obviously i dont know what i dont know, so dont shy away from saying anything no matter how basic.

Thanks

There is a good thread about "Ratsnakes" on the snakes forum, might be worth a look.

Some of the pet shop prices are just OTT, buying from breeders assures that they are CB and should be healthy.
Some shops have mainly WC, which may have parasites.

I forgot to mention hoggies. Great little beasties with a bit of an attitude.

hoggies, look nice enough, What are they like?

Im looking at how each snake species differ from the others and also how their vivs would be equipped differently.

Sometimes they hiss and rattle their tails, pretending to be a big tough snake. Quite active snakes, well ours are.

I am sure you could find something local ( well localish lol) in the Classifieds.

Good luck with whatever beastie you get.

Brazilian Rainbow Boas are nice. I think there were some down your way recently.
