    Hi, So I'm new to this forum and snakes and I'm going to get my first snake soon but I'm not sure about where to get one. I know that getting them from pet or reptile shops are almost definitely a no from what I've read but I don't know anyone who keeps or breeds them. Also, in the US it...

    I've been wanting a snake for a long time, and have been going back and forth about what kind of snake I want. I adore Hog Island Boas and think they are a pretty manageable size while still being more interesting (to me, personally) than corn snakes or ball pythons. My only worry is that most...

    Hi, I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a good beginner snake that is semi arboreal, but doesn't need any humidity or very little humidity. The snake would have to not mind being handled a lot, and be able to just lie down and relax and like, watch tv with me or something like that. I...

    Hi, I am looking for my first time snake. I have a cage that is about 4ft long, about 2 feet wide, and 2ft tall. I would prefer a snake that is semi arboreal or at least a snake that is not hiding all day long. I really wanted a hognose snake, but I heard that my size of cage is too big and...

    Hi, I'm about to get my first royal python, hopefully next weekend, and wasn't to sure about what size enclosure to have as a hatching. I have a 36 x 15 x 16 for when he is an adult but form what I have read I shouldn't put a baby straight into that. I have a RUB that is 16 x 12 x 6, would that...

    Hi all - First off, hello - I am a new member to RFUK and a firm believer that the best advice and help is available from like minded people rather than the "Experts" in the pet shops / vets and other such establishments. I have been offered a baby corn snake from a friend. She and her partner...

    Very excited today! My first snake - a young Dumerils Boa is on his way being couriered to me for delivery this afternoon! Been wanting a snake since I was about 14, the dream is finally coming true at 36 today! Been researching for months on various species but it was always a Dumeril...

    I've fulfilled a childhood dream at last and bought my first Boa! Through the course of pre-purchase research, every one of my hundreds of googled questions led me back here, so I wanted to thank you all for the wealth of information and experiences shared which have helped me to prepare...

    I'm looking to get a corn snake for my first snake and have a couple questions about viv and snake size 1. Is a 30"x12"x12" viv big enough to house an adult corn snake? 2. Should i get a hatchling/ juvenile or an adult snake for my very snake (and exotic) pet as I've heard hatchlings are a bit...

    I already own a created gecko, so if I get a snake it wouldn't be my first reprile but would be my first snake. I think I have decided on either a milk snake, king snake or a royal/ball python. I was just wondering what anyone recommends out of those 3 and why you recommend that snake. I don't...

    Hi all, My friend is looking for a snake, due to limited space ideally something under 2 ft. My knowledge on snakes is pretty limited, I know corn snakes don't get that big but they can get to 3 foot or more can't they? Any advice on the snakes and their husbandry is very welcome (:

    I'm thinking of getting a Royal Python, however since this will be my first snake (and I only have previous experience with lizards) I'm a little put off by the fact that they seem to be really difficult when it comes to feeding. Are they really as bad as people make them out to be? I've...

    I have always wanted a pet snake, however I have always put it off. I keep lizards and turtles so have experience with reptiles. I would always talk to my friends who kept snakes telling them how jealous I was of them and they would always recommend species such as corns, royals, boa...
