When I was young my brother took his snake(not penis actual snake) and let it slipe inside my bathrobe via my neck and I freaked out and basically body slammed myself into the floor in panic and killed it.
I just want to apologize to snakes.
I hate snakes they freak me the fuck out. One day I was gardening and this poor garter snake decided to pop out right next me, I lashed out without thinking and smashed him one with the shovel, it was writhing around so I cut off it's head to end its pain. I'm sorry bro but don't fucking ambush me
Not OP but corn snake bites don't really hurt. They haven't got very much jaw strength and need to get a good angle to even manage to break the skin. And that's ignoring the low probability if a corn getting mad enough to bother striking at you. They are usually very passive.
>keep snakes for 15 years
>get a variety of angry, quick snakes to practice with
>get into venomous a while back
>get rittlerattle Crotalus cerberus
>kinda boring once you have shiftboxing and hooking down
Nice to look at if you have a good display though. Not really a good potential cost over value. Don't think I'll get deeper into venomous though many are extremely good looking.
Thinking about getting a split cage with a modified divider that has a slideable opening at the bottom. Would allow for partial maintenance without having to shiftbox the snake out.
They're like fish. Interesting to watch.
I have a couple comfy snakes left though.
My jungle carpet python loved to shit on guests.
And yeah, once your snakes are over 10 feet, you're gonna see a lot of shit. You can't ignore the thickness through the paper towels. That jumbo rat has to come out somewhere.
Colubrids have the nastiest poop though. SMEAR IT EVERYWHERE.
Pic related was possibly the best looking snake I've kept. People always asked if it was real.
Died suddenly a day after a meal a while ago. Suspect the store had poor freezing and cleanliness practices as I got a nice infestation of snake mites on both my RTB and retic from other food I bought there. Assholes went out of business not long after.
op here yall, didnt think this thread would last but damn, and no he has never bitten me. and never get pissed, but he loves to strike at his food
pic to prove being op
I've been keeping reptiles for many years, but as of 5 years started keeping snakes. I started off breeding garters, then corns, kings, and bulls, but small snakes (especially colubridae) . I don't know. It's not like they irritate me, but I just don't appreciate them as much. That being said, I'd love to get my hands on some bamboo rat snakes. I keep larger species. It's not for 'ma snek' either because I really don't have friends, nor do many people know I have them. I don't even care to show them off.
Most people know me just as the 'rat breeder' from where I am. No one has put two and two together yet.
>Inb4 that guy that always flips on people for not listing the scientific name of the species they keep, so they must be liars comments.
Snek is in shed, so have old pics
Most photogenic snakes next to Atheris species, I think.
Also I almost took the handsome devil home a year ago
I got my red tail boa last year, Lousiel. I've grown really fond of her.
Hey /an/ons, my what's the average growth rate for red tail boas? Mine will be three this year and seems small for his age even though he eats once a week. What length and girth should he be at at almost 3 years?
