    and fell in love!

    This guy had an 8yo children's python for sale. I stopped and asked him some questions because I had no idea they stayed so small. I got to hold him, and had the hardest time leaving. The snake didn't want to go back either, just wrapped himself around my arm and wouldn't let go. I know it's just because I was warm and he didn't want to go back into his little display box, but I'm convinced it was because he loved me as much as I loved him. :-" The seller even offered to lower the price from $100 to $75 because he could tell I was in-love and because I was really interested in his care and not just in having him as a show piece. Unfortunately I left him there... I knew it would cause to many problems at home if I bought him, but it was a hard thing to do. :((( I'm thinking that a children's python is in my future though.

    I'm going to regret not bringing him home for a really really long time...

    Do I really need a husband that bad? >:)

    Isn't he purty?

    He's beautiful. :)
    But I think you made the right decision. Now that you know what you really like, you can start doing some serious research: save up for the best type of enclosure, etc. and build up some good arguments to convince your husband!
    :) Good luck!

    I think I have him talked into getting a baby Mexican black kingsnake though. I have everything I need to keep one comfortably for the first couple of years, so I only need the snake and it's the one snake he really wants. There were several breeders there and I got cards from them. ;)

    Yeah, not having a good setup available was a major deciding factor in not getting him. I don't think he would be happy in a 10gal and I couldn't take my rosy out of the 55gal she's been in for the last 19years just to make room for a bigger snake. That would be rude! (Plus she would need something bigger than a 10gal too.. but a baby mexican black would be fine there for a while.. ;) )
