My husband and I currently own two Ball Pythons (3yrs.)&(8 months) and a Columbian RTB (1yr) and are totally content with their behaviors. Reluctant at first, due to my long standing phobia of snakes, I was quickly proved wrong and fell in love with them. Each snake has a wonderful unique personality and handles very well. Both pythons and the Boa react well to handling and feeding. Many small children have handled all three and never once has either of them showed any signs of aggression or fright. I would honestly recommend these pets to any one interested in a long lasting, easy-to-care for new family member.

Whether you find your snake or not depends A LOT on luck. I've had snakes escape before. My reticulated was found sleeping INSIDE my shoe once. A few times in the gap between the door and wall of various rooms. Carpet python under the sink anchored to the outgoing pipe. As for my ball python, I had actually given up on finding him but one day as I was preparing for a shower, I opened the cover of the drainage hole to flush in some hair on the bathroom floor and there's where I found him. Mind you, he was already a fairly fat snake at about 24+" then so it was one place I didn't expect to see him. Also, he'd gotten there through a pipe joining the bathroom to the toilet and had obviously gone in from the toilet end. Good luck!

Check underneath your bed or underneath stuff where it would be warm and tight, they like to have something on their backs so they feel safe... and for future reference, get a locking top tank or at least put something on top that is too heavy for it to lift.

Our 4th of july celebration of 2008 was quite a surprise to my entire family, because on that day we became the proud new parents of our lil' columbian RTB
We named him Fluffers and he is the most facinating animal I have ever owned (and I have owned a lot of animals)... scared at first handling him, me and my 2 young daughters developed a strong bond with him, in part because he is such a gentle creature. I never imagined that I would love him so, but I do, in fact we have started getting my other family members to show interest in them too. My cousin whom wouldn't even go in the pet store for fear of seeing one now comes to my home just to hold Fluffer. He has really made an impression on everyone he touches.
He is a great joy... and an educational experience for my children, one that they may have never known otherwise...

I just got a snow corn snake for my b-day and no, I didn't name him anything lame or having to do with snow like apparently everyone else has. His name is "Mr. Neitzche Vonnegut Bukowski" because I couldn't pick one. So now he has a full name and is apparently pseudo related to one of my favorite authors. He's the most beautiful and docile snake I've ever met. Right now he's only big enough to eat frozen baby mice but I think soon I'll be testing him to see if he can make a kill himself (maybe a pinky or something). So yeah, I'm in love with my snake. He's like the dog I'v always wanted. He's out of his tank almost constantly because while I sit and watch tv he'll curl up on my terry cloth robe and sleep on my lap. When I clean my room he turns into a bracelet, lol. Anyway the info on this page was incredibly helpful, so thank you.

Hi, I have the pleasure of owning a bald python. His name is monty, and I also own a red tail columbia boa constrictor, her name is jade. Me and my girlfriend both love them very much, they are easy to care for and very easy to become attached to. We have had them for about a year now and plan on having them both for many years to come.

My albino sonoran gophersnake, named Charlie, is the coolest snake. He is friendly, and active. He enjoys burrowing a lot and has various tunnels throughout his tank which he made in the aspen bedding. He is not aggressive though he will hiss at me and be cranky if he's beginning to get hungry. I love having him. He's my first snake. He's been through a lot too, getting stuck onto a piece of tape and getting stuck behind some styrofoam... poor Charlie! lol. He's so cool though.

I just got a baby albino snake for Christmas (already love it!) and I have a question. I read here that the snake will not do well in bright lighting, but that is the bulb the store gave me. My snake has a log 'house' that it can hide under. Is this fine? or should I switch out the light? Also, as of now I have the light positioned on the side of the tank (approx 30 gal). Should I have it further away? I also have a red light and was planning on using that at night because my house can get pretty cold. Any info would be nice.

I have just bought two columbian RTB's. The one is a normal RTB which is my fiance's, and a pastel RTB which is mine. The normal RTB is very friendly but the pastel is slightly aggressive, but calms down when handled. I am in love with the coloring and the body style of these snakes. They are so beautiful.
