Patience, Grasshopper.... My mom wouldn't let me have anything to do with snakes, either. First thing I did when I moved out was set up a tank & got myself a Peruvian Red Tail boa.... Unfortunately, she just passed away last year ago at the age of 23.

Do you mind me asking what you paid for him/her? They get them in occasionally around here and they are usually $80+.

$65 for that one. They had a lot ranging in price to about $150. This one was a little cheaper than some of the bigger ones.

My parents wouldn't let me have anything cool either. Now we can get whatever we want and we also have 7 year old corn. Weve had lots of animals over the years. It's a lot of responsibility .

Yep, my mom wouldn't have ever let me own one either. But, its a whole different ballgame owning pets as an adult than I was when I lived with her, so I understand now.
That said, I love my snake. They are great pets, especially if you find a nice, relaxed one.

Yes, also they are a huge commitment. Snakes live up to 20 years. Ive heard some breeds even longer. I mean you gotta think are you willing to commit 20 yrs of your life to this animal. Same with cats and dogs.

Yep. They have longer lifespans than many people realize. And snakes are relatively cheap to feed week to week, but that money certainly adds up over a decade.

Not to mention the unplanned illnesses, dealing with scale rot or finding your first regurge! Never will forget that smell. Our ball python was a difficult feeder and sometimes would refuse to eat for months at a time.
