PostSubject: Hello Getting back into the hobby   Thu Aug 01, 2013 4:29 pm

Hello,

Former Hobbyist here, had to part ways with what I had left in my collection a few years ago when I got out of the military and jobs were hard to come by.  It's been years the temptation of the hobby has been around me several times but life was never stable it took everything to keep my Wolf and Shepherd at times alone.  

Mostly were into Retics, and while I say get back in the Hobby, can't get into in depth that I was, my son is turning 6 years old this month and he really wants a couple snakes, hes seen some he really likes (Spider Ball Python, Pastel Ball Python, Pied though thats a bit out of budget, and even an Albino Boa.)

I know hes young, and this is a lot of responsibility for him, basically it will be my responsibility but he has the joy of  interaction with the animal from time to time (he has a strong bond with animals at a young age already) and this is what he wants for his 6th Birthday (pretty cool at least I think so)

Welcome Smile I also keep retics and other larger constrictors. Those two are very nice, tigers is the best morph out there. My daughter is 7 and has three of her own snakes. I make her clean up after them and feed them, with supervision. She has 2 corn snakes and a sand boa. She really wants a red tail though.

Thanks for all of the replies!

Grymm - Thank you they were a big part and what really started my addiction to this hobby at one time. The big girl got right to 19' in length.

Zues - 19th of August, but he has a party a couple days before

sic_anger & megkel glad to see I won't be the only one here! I'll make my son help me out for a while getting him into it.

Thanks picked up the newest member of our family today.  And an official back into the Hobby.

I sent Don an E-mail and he was very helpful and we picked up an amazing little guy, a '12 Bumble Bee. Without actually hearing the name of it my son picked him out and named him Bumble Bee.
