We have a problem...Have picked up another from Craigslist also, which my wife has claimed as hers.  My wife and two oldest are not both into reptiles and want to try breeding next year.  Working on getting some adult/sub adult females and building a couple of small racks to house everyone. 

I'm so glad you guys are into it. I wish more people would like them, they really are amazing animals. I get sad when I hear "I saw a snake in the yard today and I killed it with the shovel" especially around here cause none of them are dangerous. They are great to have around the house because they take care of the field mice that decide to come in the house.

Personally I find the different morphs fascinating and love the endless possibilities  for breeding. Its a lot like what people can do with clownfish, except there is literally an endless array of color and pattern morphs to mix and match.  It is very cool the role genetics plays in breeding one species of animal to have so many different looks.

How are they packed?? I've always wondered how they ship snakes.. Do they have a heat pack like if you order fish?

Yes, they were each in their own cloth bag inside a styrofoam lined box.  The heat pack was taped to the bottom with a layer of foam wrap between it and the snakes to isulate them.

Oh yeah, my thing is different morphs or garter snakes. I found a guy in finland that does all kinds of morphs. One day I'll end up getting one, hard to swallow 500 bucks lol

This is "Joker", a male banana het clown who will be our first stud.  Pictured with my 13 year old daughter who asked for  the smaller  banana het pied as an early birthday present.  Joker is as easy going as I would expect  any snake to be and has been claimed by my wife (same woman who swore five weeks ago there would never be a snake in her home)

This is the little girl I've claimed as my own.  Madam Pele, named for the Hawaiian goddess of fire.  Fire het clown female who should throw some nice babies once she is bigger.

This is how bad it's gotten around here. Three more additions today.  Between animals we're already committed to and anything we see at that local reptile show tomorrow this will be mostly filled by Sunday.

I swear, why do so many degenerate trolls hang out in the NR Lounge?  I'm pretty sure a lot of them don't even have a tank and just want to talk about beer, bowel movements and food outside the occasional break to troll someone's thread.  I mean this stuff is seriously mindless, no wonder they get bored and sh*t on everything they can.

Don’t feed the trolls. 🤣

I ignore most nonsense on here. Just don’t have the time to listen to bit@hig and moaning. If I wanna talk about beer, I do go to my local watering hole. 

Hate to waste my time on silly ppl.
