I have had my albino snow corn snake for nearly two years. He's such a friendly snake and he likes to be handled and the attention he gets. He is so easy to look after and he downs his food every time.
So if there is anyone out there who is thinking of getting a snake, i'd recommend the corn snake due to its docile nature, because they're easy to look after and there are many different breeds to choose from.

For anyone wondering how to feed an RGS, I have a couple of suggestions. Whenever it comes to feeding time with my snake, I make sure to put about 2 dozen smallish crickets directly in the tank with him. I never try to hand feed him because RGS' tend to be quite timid and high strung. By putting plenty of crickets in the tank the snake can eat at their leisure. Another trick I have learned about feeding is to sometimes give them meal worms. These are small and easy for an RGS to swallow since their necks are so slender. Make sure to mist your tank a few times daily for humidity and water. These snakes do not always like to drink water from a bowl. I know that mine does not. By misting the tank the snake can drink off leaves or vines in the tank. The added moisture in the tank will also help your snake shed when the time comes. Do not let your tank become too moist because these snakes can get skin disorders and respiratory illnesses easily and do not often recover from them.

Hi, we just bought my son a rose haired turantula yesterday for his 12th birthday, he has studied them for 4 years now and i was absolutely terrified to have it in our home. But, now i think she is so pretty and interesting. I can not wait to watch her become comfortable with us and her surroundings. My son thinks that turantulas are very interesting and he loves to see them eat and walk around in the terrairiam. He is still very scared to hold her but i am sure that he will eventually. I told him that he needs to be confident and not jumpy before he does this She doesnt move around a lot and i am not sure if it is because she is just settling in her new home or if she is about to molt. i am looking forward to experiencing something so wonderful. celeste

my snow cornsnake was very friendly and gentle my first few days i had him. then i fed him for the first time correctly, and after that about a day and a half later, i tried handling him and he snapped at me. its been a few days and every time i try to handle him he snaps at me. he has become very aggresive within only a day.

I have a bearded dragon called Liz. But mostly he's called Fatty! He is the coolest pet ever. He is also extremely spoiled. He gets fed by hand and water by hand daily and gets to run all over the house. He especially likes to climb up and down the stairs and to see how far he can jump. He's less than a year old but has a great personality and gives lots of licks and loves to be held. I'd highly recommend one as a pet, but they do require a lot of time and upkeep but it is well worth it. Thanks - Brandon and Trayce

Well, about 4 months ago my girlfriend and I purchased a single emperor scorpion from a local pet shop. at the time, we had no clue if it was male or female, and really didnt care! we were just excited to finally have one.

as of today, we figured out that it's female...
we had quite the shock when we went to look at it and discovered 25-30 little white baby scorpions clinging to her back! to be completely honest im still in shock as i write this.

with all the wonderfulness, now we just have the problem of figuring out what to do with them all!
