    Just past 2 years of having my baby and she is still a perfect angel for me. High emphasis on for me with my wife, I think she can sense her unease and reflects it back. Definitely my snake, and because of that Crystal now has a Mojave morph Ball python. Lilith is your stereotypical BP. Friendly, a bit curious, and takes a long time to go from strike to begin swallowing when she gets fed. Here are a few photos of each

    They are both great beauties, but I have always preferred "shiny" and "iridescent", and BRBs have both in abundance! Ball pythons are beautiful and chill, but boring. I prefer the more active snakes. But they're definitely loved by many for that exact "chill" nature, and for good reason.

    My husband is terrified of all of my snakes, so of course they sense that. My BRB is active, not inclined to strike, and just generally wonderful . But my husband doesn't see it that way! LOL! I'm glad yours has grown up to be as wonderful as the day you first got it.
    In the end, only kindness matters.

    Thank you! I completely agree with you as far as both are concerned. While I love snakes in general, BRBs have had a grip on my heart for 20+ years. Since my wife was pretty inexperienced with reptiles until we met, I figure a BP is a safe beginner for her. If it were solely up to me, we'd have at least a half dozen rainbows though.
    Looking at what animals you own makes me a bit jealous by the way! Big fan of BC I and Carpet pythons too.

    Ah, if you were local (western Oregon), I'd give you my carpet python. I never handle her at all, and I've had her for several years. I don't particularly care for her one way or another, and would give her to a good local home, since I can't ship.... Of course, my BCI girl doesn't get handled much, either, and she's the one that always strikes at everyone, but I fear no non-venomous snake, and I especially love her (her name is Riversong), so I handle her properly when I need to (with a hook until I can hold her behind the head and at the tail), and forgive her her feisty personality .

    Yes, as long as they actually eat, a BP is a great beginner snake. They get to a decent size, too, for people who like big snakes. I'm sure your wife must love hers.

    That's somewhat ironic and heartbreaking all at the same time. I grew up in Seattle but spent time in Oregon as well. I still refer to the Pacific Northwest as home, ask Elizabeth
    How big are both of them? I had a normal BCI that was 7ft before I had to rehome him sadly. I only ask in the hopes that I can offer tips on handling. Drake was a gentle "giant" It took a lot of work but he became very placid about almost any human contact. Having any kingsnake at all I can tell you do not fear the non-venomous they are notoriously ill tempered. You really should share some photos of your reptilian family! I know I wouldn't be the only one happy to see them.

    Riversong is about 6'. Not sure of the IJ's length. I simply don't handle Riversong enough, and whenever she sees a hand, she thinks it's bringing food. I used to handle her all of the time, and she was very curious and non-aggressive. I merely need to handle her more so she gets used to it again .

    The carpet python, should you ever come to Oregon again, is yours. I'm not advertising her anywhere, so she'll just hang here for now.

    I love kingsnakes. While they tend to be "nippy", I've never met a truly aggressive one. As far as I can tell, they're simply ALWAYS hungry! LOL!
