    Thank you, The Mangrove snake was a Father's day gift last year from my wife and son. It was a wild caught(unknown at time of purchase) and was LOADED with internal and external parasites. After a very informative and costly visit to the vet he was pronounced generally healthy and I was given a few doses of meds for him to be given and now he is doing fine.

    The White-lipped python was also a gift from my wife and son. He was very small when I got him and he never hesitated to try to take a hunk of skin out of my hands. Thankfully he has settled down a lot in the past few months and is easily one of my favorites.

    The Blood red corn was a gift from my mother and father-in-law. My father-in-law can't have snakes so he gets his fix at my house, and keeps snakes vicariously through me. Gene, (father-in-law) also helps me when I show my snakes at the local community college during the veterinaty office assistant class.

    That's so cool. :)

    I can't have snakes either :( (my girlfriend is terrified of them)
    I'm trying:rolleyes:to get her to not be so afraid of them so I can get a corn or a king (lots of morphs of both species I like :p) but there isn't anyone I can live vicariously thru ;)

    I can relate. I was married for 18 years before I got my first snake, so don't ever give up! My wife has always been fairly supportive of my odd ways though. She bought me a tarantula that we kept for 11 years or so until one day I came home from work and found it lying upside-down in it's cage. Very sad day. I haven't been able to bring myself to get another one since then.

    My wife was also a little nervous around snakes but the more she learns about them the more interested she becomes in them. Just food for thought.

    Ya, she seems to listen more as I talk about them so I'm thinking slow and steady will win and i'll soon have a snake to go along with my CWD ;)

    Good luck. Keep at it and you will eventually wear her down.

    Great snakes, even though I am a wimp and some of those snakes are WAY to big for me,lol. They are still beautiful. :)

    Thanks for the comments Merlin and Lucysfriend, I love the mangrove also he is just so vibrant in his coloration. The black is so deep it has hints of blue in it, and he really is such a gentleman-best wild-caught snake I have ever had the pleasure of meeting(even though I am not a big fan of wild-caught I made an exception in this case).

    Lucysfriend- some of the snakes are bigger than I would have normally been comfortable with but when the original owner tells you he is either going to release them in Florida or kill them, what can a person do other than give them a better home? They really are a lot easier to deal with than the blood python that I rescued a few weeks ago.

    Oh, and Merlin I don't know about putting the name with the face- I have been told that I have the perfect face for radio. Lol! But thank you for the vote of confidence anyway you made a fat middle-aged man's day.

    LOL! No problem! I am sure no super model myself!;)

    Maybe not-but you have that fabulous outfit and staff.

    Then you did the right thing in taking them in. People that release animals or kill them really make my blood boil! I just don't understand that, never did. I mean why have the animals in the first place??!!
    And yeah Merlin is "stylin" lol. :p
    Wizards are always in style!

    Yes, I agree. When are people going to realize that reptiles are not disposable animals. They are living things and can feel pain, I also believe that they can understand when someone truly cares about them or not. The two Burmese pythons are twelve feet long for the male and eight and a half feet long for the albino female and they are just as calm and easy going as my three corn snakes. I just make sure I don't handle the Burms by myself.

    As far as Merlin goes- clothes do make the man! I really like the wizard look. Tres Chic!

    Yeah but you should see the looks I get from my neighbors when I am dressed like that!
    Not to mention the people in the convenience store when I stop in for coffee!
