I've been real intrigued with Red-Tails and think they're absolutely beautiful. Is there a significant difference between caring for a red tail and ball? Especially temper and handling wise. I'm not terrified of getting bit, I know it's bound to happen, but I don't want a douchey snake. Would like to know if after acclamation if red tails are relatively chill and wouldn't mind hanging outside the cage every now and then.

Any other species worth looking at? I'd love a Burmese but unfortunately 8ft is about the max I can do right now.
Red-Tails are not difficult to keep at all, however they do need more space than balls do. I have met a few who are "hissy" but most calm down very quickly and have no real problems. If you wanted a burm, and had some money to spend, you could always go for a dwarf, they max around 7-8 from what I've seen.

In other news, picking up 2 ball pythons, 3 corn snakes, and a rosy boa on friday all for only $140, with full setups, pretty stoked.

so the guy at the pet shop where i got my Boa from got a little snappy with me last night when i went in there. i had my snake with me. in short he told me that i was handleing my snake too much. told me to put her in her tank and leave her.

i was always told to handle them as much as possible to get them use to you. as long as you are not stressing them. now i like tocome home, get her out and sit in front of the TV and hold her like this for a little while. then do it again before i go to bed. every time i try to put her back in her tank, she wrap around my hand or trys to come up my arm when i put her back in the tank. now if i am wrong.... someone let me know.

Gotta love those pet shop "experts"

Not to say that all pet shop employees are morons, but many are just like the ones at Home Depot or Lowes...just because they are working in the plumbing dept people will ask them questions a plumber should answer...and they'll throw any guess at you as if they were experts when the truth is that all they know they learned talking to others in the plumbing department.

Now there ARE shops with experts. "Pets A Plenty" north of Houston for example. Eric Haug owns it, and he is so knowledgeable and helpful that many of the veterinarians in Houston will send people there with reptile issues because there are a lot of vets who really don't know much about treating reptiles...but Eric does.

You just have to be careful and use your head. The Interwebz are a great source as well as long as you are listening to reputable people, use some common sense, and research the answers you get.

After 2 months of my ball refusing to eat frozen, I gave in and few him live. I watched the entire time to ensure he wouldn't get injured. He took it easily. Guess that's the route I'm going to have to go for now on.

As long as he wasn't losing weight, he's fine, they can be tough to switch over, but its doable. =)

Also, any of you know where I can pick up normal balls/corns etc or other various snakes super super cheap in bulk? I've been hitting craigslist with a few extra snakes lately and I've been making a killing.

I'm not against feeding live if it's the only thing he will accept. It'll be a pain in the *** to drive 20-25 minutes to get his meal, but oh well. I would prefer to feed frozen. I'll try again after a few months and hope for the best.

Understandable, I can hardly handle snakes who won't eat f/t, considering the several hundred mice in the freezer right now

My corn eats frozen just fine. I buy a few months worth for him that sits in the freezer. Wouldn't dare try to feed him live, he's just too tiny.

Pretty easy to tell them apart. Moccasins are fatter and thier heads are shorter and diamond shaped. You also can't see thier eyes from the top and thier patterns are also quite different.

Still waiting on these pics titan.

I wish it was as easy to spoil the snakes as it is my bird and fish. Always want to buy them something but have no clue what to buy.

It is a snake. It does not have the capacity to enjoy anything. The same would apply to the fish.

Yeah. Lived on a property with quite a few ponds and creeks, we had PLENTY of water moccasins, looking at them from a distance, I dont want anything to do with water snakes either.

Haha, haven't been home yet to take better pictures of him yet, considering I'm hiding him in a box under my bed from my mother.

Better picture of him, he's a little bit hissy still but already started eating. As much as I tried to move out of snakes into only lizards, this guy is gorgeous and I'm looking to breed him this summer
