When I chose my cali king it was love at first sight, it was the first one I handeled, and when the shop assistant got out another cali king, I still held on to my one as that was the one I wanted, lol
Well, with me it was kinda love at first site, but the decision to actually get it took a couple months... I was working in a petstore part time at the time and we got this lil Miami Cornsnake come in. I was the one who looked after it everyday, changing its water, feeding it, etc and after a few months of it not selling I decided I was going to take her home. I had her almost 19 years so it was a good decision and she was the first of many... I now have 22 snakes, but Cornelia will always probably be the most special, think you always kinda remember your first the most....
erm Well I went into a shop that my mate owned and they sold reptiles I had always been scared of snakes but just decided that day to over come my fear. Asked to hold one of the baby burms they had but he said they were still a bit nippy so he gave me a royal to hold.
! hour later I left the shop with the royal and full set up and my addiction began lol
Had to choose or it would have been dead, the person who had it did not know how to look after it.
I was given it by my local pet shop which has now closed down, it is now ten years old and doing well.
