I have 6 snakes and I know that there are many others on this board who also have snakes. Please share about them.

Justin and I have 2 red tail boas. "Angel" is probably around 5 feet long and "Bo" is probably around 6'.
We also have 2 ball pythons, "One Day" who is probably around 5' and "meatball" is small, about a foot.
"Tarzan" is a jungle carpet python and is about 3- 3 1/2 feet.
Lastly "Flick" is our snow corn snake and he is around 3 feet.

Those are all estimates on the lengths, we haven't measured them in a very very long time.

I used to. I had a smooth green snake and a milk snake. I will probably get more in the future.

I've always wanted a corn snake... How are they to care for? Pretty simple? I've read up on them but nothing beats personal experience... They eat pinkies, correct?

Cornsnakes are one of the easier snakes to care for. They are a good starter snake. What they eat depends on their size. Pinkies are the baby mice before they get their fur.

Corn snakes are awesome snakes and great for a first time snake owner. They can stay on mice their entire life. Pinkies to begin with but they do need a larger meal as they grow.
They don't get very big either. They are also a very gentle snake, very easygoing.

I unfortunatly do not own any snakes. I just got my first reptile on the weekend, a green anole named Zorro. But now I am in love with these cold blooded creatures. I hope to one day get an albino corn snake. I am researching a lot about them right now :p.
