But can't they be difficult to feed? I don't have a frog to scent mice with, and I don't paticularily want to get one... Gloria

Just make sure you get a western that's feeding on mice. The eastern hognose are the more difficult. Cindy

On the other hand, pet frogs are pretty cool too.. :-)

Oh, eventually I want frogs, dart frogs to be precise. I just don't want to buy them right away because I don't feel that I have the experience needed, yet. When I decide to make the jump into frogs I'll start with something like White Tree Frogs, or Fire Belleys if I'm not living in Oregon (for some reason I never see any in the petstores here, I think they're illegal). They're cool, and all that, but I can only do so many animals at a time!

That's good to know, if I decide to get one. I'll keep them in mind then!

Do you like solid colors? As I said above, I love eastern indigos, but haven't yet been able to afford them (waiting to see if my husband's contract goes permanent...y'all cross your fingers!), so while I'm waiting, I bought a beautiful mexican black kingsnake. Azrael is just gorgeous, and not at all nippy like some other kingsnakes can be. Here's a picture:


In sunlight or bright light he has the most beautiful rainbow sheen, and is as sweet as he can be. He loves to be taken out and handled, and he'll eat as many little mousies as I give him. Babies can be nippy, but settle down fast.
Similar in looks, but with an even better temperment are black milk snakes, but they don't actually turn black until they're a year or two old, and some of them can retain faint markings.
I also love my little cornsnake, even if she is a bit shy...hey, if you were the size of a big drinking straw, you'd be shy, too. She's never nipped or even tried to, though, and she's settled down a lot since she hit two feet. A picture of Baby:

I also plan to get a pair of Brazillian Rainbow Boas, but they are so delicate as to humidity and temps that I want to be sure I have a stable set-up with a reliable alarm before I acquire them...maybe this coming summer. They're beautiful snakes, and get big enough to be fun, but not too big.
