Alot of people say corns, I know but I'm loking for a short lived cheap ,easy adn uncoplicated snake to look after, it should be a relatively easy to tame nsake as well, also if its relatively cheap to buy the actual snake that would be good aswell, thanks!

Hi Miranda

I know you are only 11 years old but most snakes will live over 10 Years if kept properly this goes for the majority of reptiles, maybe a reptile is not something that is for you unless you are committed to its life, for instance if you buy a hatchling corn and keep it for its life it could still be around in your 20s.

If You Want A Short Lived First Snake. Get A Adult Corn Snake Or Something, But its not for defernate how long they live for. If you don't want to have it for long and can't, Then i wouldnt bother at all.

lol :lol: nice 1 dex!!! tipans r pretty tho!!

seriously chick... why a snake... they cost alot to run, electricity bills etc... vets bills when things go wrong... what about keepin the dead mice in your freezer :? .. having a snake is great... if iits what you really want, and what about when the novelty wares off... you can't just let it go! if you were serious and were getting a snake for the right reasons (which sorry but i don't think you are!) then you would be asking questions like which one is going to be easiest to handle, feed and generally keep properly. why not try a hamster 1st? get used to looking after something, feeding it, doing everything for yourself see if you get bored. :roll:

I've been thinking about getting a reptile fro a long time, and Really i dont think the novelty would ever wear off And i find it insulting to think that I would be incapable, but anyway it turns out that we dont have the freezer space for the mice so snakes are of the list anyway.

if its something that the novelty wont wear off, then why do you want it short lived ? :?:

Who cant find space for a couple of mice in their freezer? You could get a couple of mice at a time... most snakes feed once a week average, so you could shop for mice monthly?

I really believe that you want a reptile. When I was eleven I wanted so many things... so passionately, and nobody took me seriously.

Do your parents have any background in keeping reps?

Take some time to really research this, and maybe think about it later when you have a bit more knowledge. See if a reptile really is the pet for you.

In the meantime, I have to echo previous posters with the suggestion of a small rodent or the like...

Dont worry I have experience with pets both equine,canine guineapigs and gastropods, i am not lazy and the work for caring for them would never be a problem, and because my parents ahve no background of looking after them, I know its very annoying that people put age in the way of whether you could look after an animla properly.It depends on your level of maturity, but right now ill just stick to my snails,guinea pigs,horses and chickens, until ive finished uni.
