Unfortunately - no scanner. Anyway, I just have to sit down and do research of this thing but for the lack of time I leave it to try and mistake stage, also because of Pluto - I'd rather go out with the puppy!

Don't let his kind, thoughtful eyes fool you. If you live in the south east and ever see one,just admire from a distance. It's a southern Copperhead and would love nothing more than to put me in the hospital. LOL. He is a beautiful snake though and between my 75 gal. reef tank and his tank, it's like I always have a National Geographic moment going on in my living room.

20 years ago, I had a 13 ft. Burmese python that Jake the Snake Roberts used on TV. I got paid $400.00 every time he used it. I eventually traded him for a Monacal and a black a white spitting cobra, a temple viper and 3 rattle snakes.I have a video of me holding the spitter and letting him spray venom at my eyes, of course I was wearing goggles. Also on the same video, I milked a western diamondback rattlesnake.I always liked snakes, then when the kiddies were born I had to give them up. Now that they are grown, the wife and I compromised on copperheads. I've had them about a year now. I guess my cobra days are over.LOL Here is a pic. of my northern copperhead giving birth, Another National Geographic moment.

I'd never have guessed that was a copperhead. Not many people keep venomous snakes so that species never occured to me. It's a very beautiful specimen.
I once kept a Columbia Redtail boa but once he reached 8 feet+ he became too heavy for me to handle. Once you stop handling them they tend not to be so tame and feeding becomes a bit more challenging.

I'll be getting my newphew a snake for Christmas and he can't decide between the Ball python or a Red Rat snake. He's very excited about his soon to be acquisition. Do you have an opinion on which species might be better for an 8 year old??

What's a Monacal? I've googled it and I'm not finding anything related to herps.

Anyway, your Copperhead is a great looking snake...do you have any photos of the viper & cobra you used to keep??

A Ball python, hands down. Rat snakes tend to bite the hand that feeds them. MOST Ball pythons are fine with handling. When picking one out, make sure that it is eating. You want to either see it eat or see a lump in it as proof. The super tiny ones offered for sale at pet shops are sometimes difficult to start feeding. Also, it is easier if you get one that is big enough to take at least small mice instead of baby mice as they are readily available in any pet shop. I only have video of the other snakes I had on an old camcorder,remember those huge VHS dinosaurs. I did manage to have someone transfer it to DVD but I don't know how to get a still picture from it but if it's possible, I would sure like to. Any High Tec. people out there with info as to how to do it? Oh shoot, I meant Monocle Cobra. Sorry. I had a DUH moment. LOl
