Anonymous said: I reaaaaaaally want a snake! I've done a lot of research, and I'm aware of the responsibility. I only have one problem- I'm going to college in a few years, and I know most snakes have a long lifetime. My parents aren't willing to care for it after I go. What should I do?
You should wait until after college. I know it will be hard suppressing that absolute need to have a scaled friend (I am suffering the same pain at the moment) but it will be better for the little buddy if you wait until you can care for them without any problems getting in the way!

I've been missing my slithering, hopping, crawling buddies ever since. I get so much comfort here just seeing pictures and reading things left around by other scale baby owners.
i’m so sorry about your loss! I’m really glad I can be of some help though!

Anonymous said: Hi! I'm considering purchasing my very first snake (I've had other reptiles and amphibians before...but no snakes). Got any tips for a newbie?
(Newbie anon here): I’m mainly considering either a corn snake or a ball python…
It really depends on what you’d like. Corn snakes are quick, flighty, and sometimes a little pain to handle (since they like to move so much). Ball pythons are slow, fat, and calming (to me). Corn snakes are definitely easier to keep up, and ball pythons take just slightly more attention to detail with their husbandry.
Try looking up caresheets for both, and decide what you think you’d be able to provide for them with the least amount of stress on the animals side and your side. :)
