    Hi and welcome....you've come to the right place for friendly people and lots of advice. :D The people here have lots of experience with lots of different species of reps, not just snakes. Personally I have a 4 yr old (his birthday was yesterday :D) Barrie is a stimson, very similar to a Childrens. If you're in WA we're restricted in what snakes we can keep. Ask what questions you like, remember there's no such thing as a dumb question. We were all new to this hobby at one time.

    Cheers, Annie :D

    You'll find you can have quite a lot more pythons in NSW than we can here. WA has the strictest licensing laws in the country. I'd love to have a pygmy python coz they're so little, but we're not allowed to have them here. :(

    Hi and welcome to the site. Childrens, Stimson and Spotteds are all lovely natured snakes for beginning with. (This is a generalization, as each snake has his own personality, well......snakeonality!!). I know a little how you feel as I come from the country too where "the only good snake is a dead snake" still seems to be the order of the day!

    You'll get used to pythons very, very quickly and probably end up with snake addiction like the rest of us. It reminds me of owning horses......"I'm only getting one...." Yeah, right.

    Enjoy the site.
    Morgana
