I just stepped up to my first "large" constrictor with a African Rock Python, I have experience with Retics but decided I love the looks of the Rock a lot better, and I still don't think I can completely trust a Reticulated, they can be right nasty sometimes. Oh well he is a nice compliment to my Red Band. Post pix if yall have em, I hope to get some scanned of my Rock here in a few days.

I used to own a small Ball Python. His name was Elvis, and I inherited him from a friend who could no longer keep him. He was a great pet, and much cooler than I ever expected a snake to be. He used to curl up around my wrist while I programmed and would stretch out along the top of my keyboard to watch the monitor. He died after feeding him a pinky mouse, and I have missed him ever since. I keep wanting to get another, but I want to wait until my kids get bigger before I do. God Bless Texas

While I haven't actually had one as a pet for some time now we occasionally will keep a snake for a few days after catching it out in the open. Here is a picture of the last gopher snake that my dad caught while he was out on a 5k "fun run" in the hills. My dad and I both stand right at 6ft 3in tall, after measuring this stupid snake with a length of line this thing came in at 7ft long! Biggest we've ever caught or had around the house, he was pretty strong and LOVED to bite! God, I actually sorta HATE gopher snakes because all the ones I've ever come across have been pretty ill-tempered. King snakes however are quite possibly my most favorite snake on the planet, never been bitten and have kept quite a few of them from time to time.

There are only three kinds of snakes that I truly CAN NOT be near. Live, dead and pretend! I am phobic about them.

I used to own a reptile pet store in TX. Had up to 100 in the house at one time as breeders. I dont have time for them and well my wife hates them. Now its just computers and guns.

My daughter has a Boa that's up to 6 feet now. I say she has it, even though I get to buy frozen rats for it & feed it. Great fun. Lately the younger daughter has started volunteering to dange rats in the cage. I know what you mean about typing with a snake wrapped around your wrist (& arm & neck). Once it finds a warm spot that it can hang on to, it sort of snuggles in & gets very quiet.
