    My favourite piece of outdoor furniture is a milk crate, does that count?

    Hey it can be a chair, a table, a foot rest, a step ladder, a stand when rendering hides..... the list goes on! :lol:

    I personally don't care what people call me, I own snakes, a harley, triumph and 12 other bikes, I have a 68 XT Fairmont rusting away on the front lawn and I own a Bull Mastiff. I live in a mainly housing trust area, have been to ac/dc, metallica, Ozzie Osbourne and pink floyd concerts and I wear shorts and thongs whenever I am not working. If people wanna call me a bogan it would probably be one of the nicest things I have ever been called

    I have snakes , tats and own 2 red nose pitbulls and i am far from a bogan, have a degree, very nice car, very nice modern house in a well to do area, gorgeous girlfriend, i think maybe its just people your mum might of known when she was yonger or know that are bogans and own snakes, i personally think people that own snakes seem to be more intelligent , and just because we have interests in the not so typical pets , you become a sterotype , keep collecting and enjoying every minute with your snakes

    I like this hobby because of the diverse range of people that are into it; you get individuals of all ages and walks of life united by a common interest and love of the animals they keep.

    I don't think it's really fair to say that "all snake people are bogans" (though i know that was not your intention bananapeel) because it totally discounts a huge number of reptile keepers that do contribute to the hobby.

    People are the way they are, there's nothing wrong with that. If you like utes, V8's, beers and tatts - power to you! But on the same token, not liking those things doesn't necessarily mean you must be completely up yourself ;)

    I'd much rather talk to someone who has $2 to their name and can hold a decent convo as opposed to a two million dollar toff who can't put two words together and is a snob.

    I own two Womas and have owned a gamut of colubrids and boids here in the US. I'm a school teacher with a post graduate degree with tattoos that aren't visible in professional attire. My wife is a nurse and we live in a suburban neighborhood with my family and my English Bulldog and Daschund. I'm a martial artists, obstacle and road race runner, and part time "soccer mom". I think the stereotypical tattoo and snake "person" in the United States has been muddied since its very mainstream here. Not sure if its the same on your side of the world.

    I had to look up what a bogan was! It seems to have the same meaning as a redneck or "hoopie" here in the states. I'm assuming a bogan is considered bad? Or is it just a common stereotype that snake owners are uneducated and tattooed over there?

    As in any "hobby" there is always an unsavoury element of which the majority do not wish to be represented by. :p

    IMO..it is more of a description of a persons behaviour .... not entirely of their appearance

    lol, bogans are awesome.. without bogans toffs would just be normal people, so lets be honest they need us..

    I have no tats (but want them)
    I have a staffy x ridgeback ( but she is a gorgeous sook)
    I keep reptiles ( but just love all animals)
    Drive a WRX ( first car was a vh SLE )

    I rekon im in the middle but most my mates are bogans and they are all awesome as hell. wouldnt have it any other way..

    the few snake peeps i know are more eccentric than derro/bogan. lol

    Haha I'm an escort with snakes, spiders and a few small tattoos so I hate to think how some people view me but I tend to 'class it up' a bit in other areas so I seem more eccentric than trashy :p
