    Default Hey, I got reptiles too!

    Saw Styx' pets and they are AWESOME! I don't have lizards, but I do have 4 snakes...

    Zeke - Western Hognose (he's hiding in the cave)


    Sunshine - Albino Ball Python


    Salazar - Spider Ball Python


    Curly - Pastel Ball Python


    I find these guys easier to take care of than orchids, that's for sure!

    wow i wouldn't have guessed that you have snakes for pets. me im confined to dogs
    maybe birds and fish once i finished expanding my grow area. im sorry if i am not a big
    fan of snakes.

    maybe thats why you orchids are dying, they saw that you have snakes, and they died of
    heart attack hehe. anyways just joking. Hopefully everything is doing great with your
    orchid growing.

    oh my they are beautiful creatures, I have a respect for snakes near no comaprison to other creatures I am scared of them but convinced if I dont upset them they wont harm me but to have them as pets is a no no for me even though I think they are beautiful, I am just not brave enough to handle them. thank you for sharing the photos this is how I like to see snakes, at a safe distance LOL

    I have never wanted a snake for a pet, but yours are really beautiful. Thanks for sharing their photos.

    Cheers,

    How can they be scared of my snakes? They're cute as a button. Even my little kids aren't scared of them.



    I did notice that most Filipinos are scared of them... My mom hasn't come to visit since we got the crawlies!

    I think we have enough snakes in the Everglades......... for sure I don't want any. Don't like snakes and/or scorpions.

    Love the snakes! They are beautiful . I have a rosy boa named Roger. He's a great pet and doesn't require a lot of time if time isn't available. He lives right next to the orchids, so I can enjoy both at the same time.
