Loved the video kat! Wildcats are so gorgeous!

Hmmm, maybe his new pet is a ferret. I had one once and literally had to ferret-proof the house!

An iguana maybe? A tortoise? A hermit crab? A different kind of snake? A red-bellied toad? Umm...A rat? A dog? A Cat? Some fish? A gecko? I'm running out of ideas.

Well here she is. So about the tease, I was ready to post pics, but didnt have my cable. I let my daughter decide whether we could get the new snake or a puppy from her uncle. So we ended up with the dog instead. Her name is Ava, and she is the sweetest little dog I have probably ever seen.

She's beautiful! So is your baby! That's probably a better choice for her since she can run and play with a puppy.Great pics....be sure to post more so we can see her grow....one day she'll be a good protector.

It is interesting to see so many people who have bully breeds


It makes me happy


No pictures from me, but am relatively experienced with canines and felines, not so much exotics.

i had never even seen that rainbow boa, what a beautiful creature! Are there some good resources to learn more about them?

You should also google Sunbeam Snakes. They arent as colorful, but have that really cool sheen to them. As far as the Brazilian rainbow boas go, There are lots of places on the web where you can get them. As far as learning about them goes, I dont know of any real specific web sites that get into a ton of detail. but this link has some of the more basic information.

Also, If you would like to learn more about snakes in general, BHB reptiles runs a huge breeding operation and they put out weekly short videos that are pretty informative, and humorous as well. You can check all of the episodes here.
Snake Bytes Tv

heres a sample video.

The hognose snake is one of my favorites. They almost never bite humans but they will bump you with their nose. They can also expand there hood and look somewhat like a cobra. They also have a mild venom, but the bites are generally the equivalent of a bee sting. But the coolest thing to me, is that when they really get frightened, they put on a show and play dead.



And I agree with you about all the little bins. I understand that it is probably the most economical way to breed snakes, especially on that scale, but It sure doesn't seem like an ideal life for the snakes. Breeders will tell you though, that snakes actually prefer darker and smaller habitats, because in the wild they spend most of their time hiding. This is true to an extent. A lot of snakes will stress out and not eat if their enclosure is too large. I bought my corn snake a half of a coconut shell for it to hide in, but it wouldn't go in until I took some crumpled up paper and stuffed it in there. They like to tuck themselves into the tightest spots, where they feel safe. I thought about breeding for awhile, but I personally couldn't keep them in tubs like that. I want to give my animals the best habitat possible.
