    When i was younger I loved snakes I thought they were the coolest thing ever. After owning a few i still love them but i feel my preference has changed
    I currently only have a single monitor, but i terribly want a Mali Uromastyx, I feel like my preference from when i first started owning herps has changed to lizards.

    I was just curious if anyone else feels like their preference has changed since they first started herping

    changes all the time....sometimes i am really amped on chameleons then other times snakes, then geckos, then monitors etc etc etc :D

    most of all field herping any type of reptile. But i can see what you mean. Chameleons were my first reptile love tho. I think my preferences just GROW, not change.

    Nope; always have been -- probably always will be -- a snake person!
    Although my preference in the snake realm has changed some (from boas to pythons!) :)

    That's too difficult for me to say "yes" or "no" to. I discover a new love with each pet. I've had a lot of different types of reptiles over the years, and each time I get one, I love them for their individual personalities.

    I don't know that I ever went into keeping reptiles because of one type specifically, so I can't honestly say that my preference has changed. Especially since my last three have been adoptions from homes that didn't want them.

    That would be hard to say. I think I would have to chose "none of the above!" ;)
    Like Devon I go thru periods when one species, or even one individual, may facinate me a bit more but its never been about snakes versus lizards or anything like that.

    Mine has "Evolved"! I actually started out with tropical fish! But, as luck would have it, There is a pet store less than 3 blocks from me that sells Fish, birds, Tarantulas, Scorpions, as well as many lizards and snakes.
    I started off going there for fish supplies. They have a "Reptile Room". I started checking out the reptiles and eventually got a Savannah Monitor hatchling. I always loved lizards, I had an Iguana several years ago that died from metabolic bone disease. That was in 1985. I was 19 and didn't know squat.
    I got another Ig about 1992 and sold it later on. He was big enough to draw blood.
    I got my Sav this past spring. Then I got a Ball python.
    I've since gotten a veiled Chameleon and two Iguanas.
    But I still want a Columbian red tail Boa.
    So I guess I'm leaning to the snake side a little. It seems snakes are easier to care for. My Ball only eats once a week.
    But in the end I'm fascinated by them all!

    I guess I went from snakes to lizards.(I still love snakes though)
    I am sooo glad that I dont live right next to a petstore! I'd have to put my credit cards in the freezer! :eek:

    Nope! I've always been into colubrids. I do have a couple savu pythons and a rosy boa, the pythons are very similar in behavior to colubrids but the its just like a lazy slug, not a lot of character.

    Though this is an old post I seemed to have missed it. I started as a snaker, will always be a snaker. I currently have snakes, lizards, turtles, tortoises, and salamanders though I never thought I would get into other herps besides snakes. I've grown to love all my herp friends........but if I had a choice..........snakes hands down !!!!!
