    I have Barrie, a Stimmie....can be seen on my photo album. He'll be 4 at the end of March. He'll be my one and only and I love him to bits.

    If I was your age...sure I'd get more...but I have a few things to consider....my age and hubby is 77 this year, also I've had cancer...so I don't know what my long term future is, or how long it will be. I'm the main carer for the snake, and I'm not sure if hubby would want to care for him on his own if anything happened to me. My dream was to have a snake, I've fulfilled that dream.....so I'm content under my circumstance. :)

    My first pet snake that l gained access to in August 1989 was a Childrens Python from Brian Barnett, where the very first snake l ever saw out in the wild in 1974 in the Eastern Suburb of Burwood here in Melbourne, was a Red Bellied-Black Snake which l caught myself when l was 8 years old. :)

    I had a "sanca bodo" (Python molurus bivittatus) back in 1996 in Indonesia. A friend found the hatchling on a camping trip up a mountain in West Java and brought it home for me. I had her for 2 years before I moved to Australia and had to give her away along with the rest of my zoo (2 water snakes, 2 iguanas, a dozen hamsters and the list goes on).
