I own 3 honduran milk snakes, 2 tangerines (male and female), and a female tri-color. I bought the hondurans because I like the bright colors and I wanted a snake that was going to get 5 to 7 ft. My females are 2 yrs old and 5 ft long and as round as a ping pong ball, my male is the same age and only 40 inches. Males are smaller than females. I have never been bit or musked. they are great eaters and mine love to be handled. All hondurans are very brightly colored when they are young but darken as they get older. I think mine are prettier now since they have darkened.

Hello. Reaper is our pet. He hasn't been eating, and I was afraid, but now that I know it's most likely because he's about to shed, I feel much better. He's actually my boyfriend's idea, as I am aracnophobic, but being very calm and docile, he is slowly helping me to overcome my fear. Watching him eat and move and react to his environment has much overcome the fear I've had of spiders, though I am still a bit unsure about actually holding him as yet. Definitely a good idea for a pet. Even for aracnophobiacs.

My juvenile slider is very entertaining & I absolutely adore him. I also enjoy all the work I do to take care of him. These turtles make wonderful pets if you can commit to caring for and feeding them properly. They are so darn cute when they're little, but PLEASE refrain from getting one as an impulse purchase.

I had the Privilege of Co-habitating with a not so little white lip for well over 3 years. He was sick when I got him from the pet store (he had cancer of the blood) but I had to keep him anyway. I named him Pugsly (Like the boy from the Adams family). He was a real joy from day one, I still talk about him like he was a child. He was spoilt like one too! I never knew a frog could have such a personality but he had an attitude to back it up too. I used to love the look of total shock on everyone

Snakes are beautiful animals that are fun to handle but you never really know how they feel. This is what makes snakes so mysterious, but cool. I actually have a ball python that is almost 2 years old and 5 and a half feet long. He starts getting really fat but slims down all the time. He also sheds at least 3 times a week or more. This is why snakes are so awesome.

I'm an 18 years old and I've had my Tangerine Honduran Milksnake for about a year and a half now. She originally belonged to my teacher who could no longer take care of her. Halloween (my snake) is quite friendly and curious and she loves getting her body rubbed. She has never tried to hurt me in any way shape or form, and she is also beautiful in color variation. She usually just sleeps in my hoodie and rests her head on my shoulder. She has grown a lot since I've taken her in and she is now about 4ft in length =)

My female golden starburst is 2years old and my first spider I've kept. shes stunning to look at but not usually seen during the day due to a very deep burrow lined with silk. she has also got a raised nest up in the corner of the tank which makes maintainance difficult when shes in residence.s he can be insanely agressive if upset and i have never seen anything move so fast, but will readily come out after dark to wonder the tank.

I've had my baby MC for two years now and she's a beautiful creature, in the beginning I was nervous about holding her, however she's used to all the attention now, and I have had no incidents with her. Although they require minimal care, it is important for people to research this creature before owning, they do require certain care EVERYDAY, and only should be owned by those willing to take on that EVERYDAY responsibility. While I encourage other people to open up to the idea of owning a rose hair, please make yourself aware of all the aspects of ownership...keep them safe and love them as you would any other animal in your care!

i got this spider when, (she?) i think, was about a 1/2 inch. it is now about 1" and a quarter now. she has only molted twice and has gained size quickly. i have three other tarantulas and this is the only one that i will not handle. very fast and aggresive. good eater, i have seen it take down crickets about her size or a little smaller. Uncharacteristically of this species it has used provided housing. i can't wait until it gets bigger so i can sex it and so it gets its adult coloring! fun to watch.
