An update on how my gambling habit is feeding my reptile habit (I love it when my addictions play nice together.)
I am up $150 on the season, which moves me from hognose to spotted python, which is where I might stay.
Anything I make now is going into the Emerald Tree Skink fund. Those little guys are expensive.
I'm very new to the hobby. I know that breeders select animals for color and pattern genes, but is it possible to breed for temperament like with mammals? I care less about morphs than I do about handleability, but maybe that's not something you can breed for. This whole thing is fascinating.
I'm looking for a constrictor on the smallish side that will do well in a 70 gallon tank.
I'm interested in spotted pythons and rosy boas (although I would consider other suggestions)
I am looking for pros and cons of both from people who have experience.
Thanks in advance.
