Have three choices for new reptile I wanna get...
Should I get a) A female Boa, b) A female JCP green phase or c) A Savannah Monitor

I have a nice yearling male Boa I wouldn't mind getting a girlfriend for, same as with my JCP... I have seen both females and impressed with each of them. I have also seen the Sav Monitor and it is very nice and calm for handling and I do have a tank big enough for him when he gets bigger... Plus, it would be different for me, Soooo..... what do ya think?

gotta be a boa. lizards are way too much work. feeding everyday and grumpier than snakes (complete generalisation, based on the one skink i had). boa's are the best snakes out there. my female boa is by far my best snake. i could kiss her on the lips and she wouldn't flinch. that would be a bit wierd though wouldn't it

LOL, yes it would be a little bit weird, not into that beastiality thing, lol....

WOW, talk about being close, I was sorta hoping for some help making up my mind, but so far everything is pretty much even... And as for treating myself to all three, the Boa is $150, the JCP is $200 and the Monitor is $90... I could afford that no prob if it wasn't so close to Christmas, lol. Think I'd upset a few people if "sorry, no Christmas this year, I decided to spend your gift on myself." though.... Am leaning towards the Monitor at moment though...

Nice Yellow there Maki... I know what they look like though, lol, I already have three. One's a definate male, the other two are only 6 months old and are supposed to be one and one. Looking for a real nice girl to go with my older male though, but waiting till I see the right one... I'll know her when I see her if that makes any sense...

Yes I knew you had one or two :lol: How long it take your little ones to stop striking at anything that moves? Good luck with finding an older female as I have been looking for one for a few months to go with my DxJ Dont think there will be many until after the breeding season.

I have had them since the beginning of October and have never had a problem with them striking. The guy I got them off of though warned me they were vicious lil buggers and they were snapping at him when he went to show me, lol. I just reached in picked one up and it settled right down, think they liked me or something, hehe.... Funny thing is though, just about every snake I have been warned about and have handled, they were all really calm for me. Anyhow these two, I fed them the following Sunday after getting them, both took 2 fuzzy mice right away and I have now switched them over to rat pinkies without any troubles. Wish my big male would eat like that, I specially have to buy him live mice, grrrr....
As for finding a bigger female, I have a lead on a couple down in Calgary, but have to wait till next Spring...
