    Moving to Germany-How do I bring python with me?

    Hi all, I'm going to be moving to Germany at the end of this year for a job, and I want to bring my ball python with me. Anyone know how to do this? All regulations I've seen focus on "furry" animals, almost nothing mentions reptiles. Thanks! Dan

    Smaller Alternatives?

    Hey Y'all, It's been a while since I owned any snakes, but I've been thinking about getting back into the hobby. The last time I owned snakes (about 6 yrs ago), I had 2 kingsnakes and 2 cornsnakes. I want to buy a red tail boa, but I think the adult size is going to be too big for my...

I'm looking for large python sheds, 13ft+, preferably in one piece (I dont own any huge snakes, so I dont know how common complete sheds are). I've never seen a shed for...

    Queen Snake

    Found this guy sunning himself on a branch while I was fishing. I was pretty nervous about my camera considering to take the picture I had to wade out about 3 feet into knee deep water on large irregular rocks. It was worth it though!

    I experinced a very unique thing today with a baby w/c eastern milksnake. After striking multiple times, it coiled up and rattled its tail! Has anyone else experienced this? I tried to get a pic of the rattling, but he stopped when i got the camera.

    Garter/Other snake forums

    I've noticed that the garter and other snake forums get very few new posts on their own. I really started to think afer the moderator of the garter forum (ravensgait?) started to bring more attention to the forum. Now this might be a horrible idea, or it might be a great one, its your...

    Garter Not Eating

    I've got two WC garters that I picked up last week for a few presentations on herps that I need to do. They haven't eaten at all. I've tried worms and goldfish and rosies but they just ignore them. Because they are native to the area, I've just been keeping them in a sweater box with a hide...

    Does anyone know of some traps that are good for catching herps? (unharmed of course). I got one idea from watching the National Geographic channel. It features a couple 5 gallon buckets buried in the ground and a plastic wall running alongside them. Most creatures that run into the plastic...
