The Sonran gopher is a really smart and beautiful animal. I would recommend one as a starter pet. I just caught one close to my house. Mine is very tame and friendly, i have a lot of siblings that go from 2-10 and they have all held him. I also have a red tail boa contrictor that is about 3 feet long, and the snakes get along beautifully. The day after i caught the gopher i fed him an adult mouse and he ate easily. He is definitely a good eater.

Monica here. Just wanted to add to the breeding section . . . as with many boas, the red tails have internal incubation, to be vague. The young are born with the placenta intact; each in their own sac. There is no egg laying or incubation required with red tail boas.

The info you have on Columbian Red Tail Boas is great. I used to have one but unfortunately i had to give it away because it got way to big for my house.

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.

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 ball python and he allways gets out and he gets found in the strangest places. I think snakes are the best pet you can get because it teaches you love, compassion, and skills for other pets as well. Ball pythons are GREAT beginner pets.

I have had my RGS for about 2 1/2 months. His name is Jeremy. The first RGS that I had died the day after I got her home. The pet center gave me a new one a few weeks later. I have never seen him eat, and he has not shed at all since I've had him. He likes to be held but only if my hands are warm and tends not to like anyone else holding him. I have him housed in a 29 gallon high terrarium. There are plenty of branches and vines for him to climb. Most of the time he is basking or hidden inside his enclosure. Along with Jeremy, I have a long-tailed grass skink housed with him.
