    I don't really have a snake as pet. What is so interesting to keep an one as pet?
    What was/were your reason/s for your decision?

    Not sure to be honest... Always had a strong interest in sea life and reptiles as a kid. Glued to the natural geographic channel whilst I grew up. I did want a shark but I just flooded my room and the shark got carpet burn so I had to sell it.

    Your corn doesn't look like a Normal/Carolina? It looks like a great plains rat snake or a hybrid of rat/corn snake?

    Possibly a 'Rootbeer' which is a hybrid of Pantherophis Emoryi x Pantherophis Guttatus?

    How's the Royal? I really fancy a Carpet Python, need to save up a few pennies first though and hopefully get him/her next pay day!

    I see. Then are you interesting in other reptiles, crocodile or lizard for examples?
    Perhaps, are you interesting in prehistoric reptiles?

    Does that mean you have a shark as pet? :eek:
    Is it allowed to keep a shark as one? I don't know that it's possible. In real life sharks accomplish a size as far as 4 m, if they are full grown. The greatest shark, which people known, is the whale shark: The size is 14 m. Perhaps, sharks could adapt on their environment. Have sharks the ability to do this?

    This is probably the cutest a snake could get for me. Bit of a poser ain't he?

    Bit odd that you actively seek pictures of male genitalia on TSR, but hey ho.

    I used to have a garter snake, but I don't have any pics unfortunately. Thinking about getting a corn snake or ball/royal python once I've finished uni though.

    My corn in that photo is still a baby, so the colours haven't fully developed. I'll have to try and get a photo of him/her now. That said, it's deffo a corn. A friend from school manages the local reptile shop I go to. He's done a lot of study of herps at Uni etc, and has a massive breeding collection. He's very knowledgeable so I trust that he knows what he's stocking in the shop

    The Royal is great, lovely temperament, never struck out at me. Only on a couple of occasions has she needed some encouragement feeding, but she's never actually refused to feed. She's active in the evenings although sometimes she'll do the standard royal thing of sleep/hide for days on end
