I have 3 snakes, but I just had my favorite (Don't tell the others), Mars, out for a bit. 
She's a young Blood python (A species of Short-tailed python) 
She's going to be huge some day.

Here's an album:

I also have an Albino Western Hognose named Beef

When I was a kid (in the 1960s) I had a wild-caught black rat snake, which lived about a year and a half, but never really thrived, and an iguana ("Iggy" of course) that lived about 3 years and doubled in size.
There’s no doubt that evangelicalism seems to have an image problem, especially since its overwhelming alliance with Trump. In the minds of many outside the fold, evangelicalism no longer represents a specific religious position centered on sin and the need for individual salvation but rather a self-serving, power-hungry political movement that will side with the devil himself for the sake of political pragmatism. But this image problem isn’t new. Although polling shows that overall feelings toward evangelicals as a religious group have remained relatively stable since 2014, the perception of evangelicals as “agents of intolerance,” to quote John McCain back in 2008, well predates the Trump era. Moreover, despite a host of missteps and scandals, overall evangelical support for Trump as president hasn’t declined but grown. Sure, they may have issues with his moral center, or lack thereof, but they’re willing to overlook all this for the sake of political expediency, for promises of “religious freedom,” and the hope of a judiciary stacked with conservative judges. This is because, at the end of the day, evangelicalism isn’t really about personal values but, rather, social and political conversion and control. The Trump era, then, does not create a new problem for evangelicals and their image; it’s simply casting a very bright light on what has always been there, at least for the past forty years or so. - Egberto Willies 2018

Haven't had any herps for over a decade, but used to breed emerald tree boas and (briefly and terribly)Jackson's Chameleons. Very rewarding and heart-breaking experience at the same time.

The last herps I had as pets were a Cal. King x Honduran Milk named Herman who was very nice, and a Nile Monitor named Mr. Bip who was very mean.

All these dudes existed before digital cameras were any good, so all the pics of them are on film in a box in my mom's basement somewhere. :(

Nowadays I don't own one because the trip to the pet store for live food every week gets old super fast, and I am not raising crickets/maggots/mice in ANYWHERE I actually live ever again.

Your guys look very happy, good that you're handling them all and letting them explore. That hoggy is adorable.

I had a California King, 4ft. Had to give him away when I moved. His name was Thtebe as he had a speech impediment.

TBH, I don't miss him. Getting food was a chore as not many places in NYC sell mice, and he was too stinky for a tiny NY apt. Snakes stank up a small place pretty quickly.

He went to a good home, he's called Morse now. Probably doesn't even remember me.

I love talking to peeps with lithps ,  it's soothing and makes me smile.. 

If 20% of the population had a lisp, there'd be no more wars.
