I'm getting my first snake in a couple of weeks
spotted python have wanted a snake for around 5 years very happy now that im getting one.


just wondering if any of the pit have any sort or reptiles as pets?
pictures, talk about there behaviour and cool/funny stories about them

oh and names im thinking

Wesley, Boogaloo or Ekans

or suggest your own haha


edit: also do you feed live or frozen, im thinking of going frozen because i dont want the other animals to suffer or injure mine and i want it to be a nice snake to handle and i have heard of websites and breeders that they will be more prone to bite.

I have a ball python. Well, technically she belongs to my sister, but I'm the one that always has to take care of her because my sister is too lazy/irresponsible to do so and I'm a good person. She gave it a lame name, though. "Bindy," after Steve Erwin's daughter. I would post pictures if I had any, but... I don't.

Are you asking if midgets can draw people that are themselves smaller than the average person, or if midget drawings in general are smaller?

I have a bearded dragon and a monitor lizard.Not much experience with snakes though,but I do know that handling them with the scent of food on your hands is a fast track to OMFGTEHSNAKEBITME land.

But on average pythons are pretty docile snakes,especially ball pythons,so you should be good to go.I also suggest feeding it pre-killed prey so it doesn't get more aggressive from live feeding and so it avoids any potential injuries from the prey fighting back.

The only reptiles I've kept are turtles, but they're really awesome pets.

Here's Patton, my 3 toed box turtle. ^_^ I've had him for about 2 years now.




I used to have another box turtle, and I had her for about 4 years, but she escaped from her pen in my backyard early this past summer and basically...ran away. How pathetic is that? She was a cool turtle, had a bit more energy than Patton. She'd been hit by a car and was missing some toes.

Here she is



Aww..I miss her. She recognized me and knew when I came outside she was getting food.

I'm wanting to get a red eared slider too, to keep inside since I only really see my box turtle for about half the year (he's hibernating right now). I have to do some research on how much it's all going to cost. I'm going to name him Milton. ^_^ I've kept a red eared slider hatchling before, but only outside.So I'll have to do some reading up on what I need to do.

YES, I AM A WEIRD TURTLE PERSON!!

I have 3 turtles, tipper, todder and sgt. crusty. I did have an alligator snapping turtle named david bowie, but he got sick and I let him go. Years ago we had iguanas and would catch snakes and keep them. I didnt like neither of them that much.

Thank you. I love turtles.
Tipper and Todder are both red eared sliders and sgt. crusty is a cooter or another type of slider.

I know, it's really so funny that even though I miss my turtle, I can't help but laugh about it. I hope she's safe though. Probably out terrorizing the neighborhood.

Or better yet, it found out a way to crossbreed with the owl, so now your town is about to be overrun with turtle-owl hybrids.

You told me to name my parrot that. He's not unique anymore. =[

Anyway I use to have a green iguana, and it was a cool pet but I'm more of a bird person though so I've never really had that many reptiles.

You're the only person who has gone through with actually naming something that, though.

the biology teacher at my school has a snapping turtle in his classroom, we used to feed it crickets and small fish, ive seen it bite a small fish in half. We tried a crayfish once but it didnt catch it :/

so what you're saying is that, after getting out of the water naked with 5+ guys, you thought that once the girls were around you had better get some clothes on?

YESSSSS LOVE REPTILES LOVE REPTILES finally a thread that covers that.

Allow me to present myself as the proud owner of 3 turtles : My 2 red-eared sliders, Alfred, the 11-year old female (lol alfred I was a kid back then didn't realise that poor alfred had nothing in his cloaca...) and Ozzy, my 3-year old male, and Dwayne, my also 3-year old yellow-bellied slider. And no coward jokes please, he is a very brave little boy.

Alfred has had many adventures over the years, including tumbling down the stairs and smashing her head on the floor, and falling off the table on her back and staying there, eventually to fall asleep due to boredom :p Both cases due to curiosity, they always are very very curious about everything.

As for my 2 guys, well.. they erm practice the mating ritual...constantly :p It is not due to them being gay, but rather as an act of dominance (dwayne is bigger than Ozz, he is a big fatty :p)

I love my turtles
