& I'm getting 2 or 3.I'll have them next month.
They are gifts from a buddy of mine.

I'm also waiting to hear back regarding a pacman & treefrog.

Potato chips are yummy!

I hope he takes you out for more than potato chips though, if you are dating, that is. < Sorry, that is an attempt at humor, maybe a lame attempt.

Awesome, congrats! You must be excited. I always wanted to keep a lot of herps, but don't have the space right now. So now I don't have any, because I move around like 6 times a year and it's hard to move with tanks and heating and lighting for all the reptiles. So sad, I love reptiles.

Annnnnnyways, definatly post pics when you get them!!

Awesome and congrats! MUST POST PICTURES...or else! Kidding.

I dreamed the other night I had a corn and was getting another.The dream was so real,I swore I had a snake.Maybe thats a sign! LOL...I do want a snake really soon.I just haven't found any good sources to get one from.

I adore pacman frogs too...but since I do not seem to have luck with aquatic frogs,I am not even bothering getting one.

Exciting

Sorry if you've already said this, but are you getting N.A. species of box turtles?

Ah, nice turtles. Had a breeding pair in the past. The reason I asked is because I've been looking into the Asian box turtles

What type of boa are you getting?

Pacmans are a blast. Sorry, I'm very excited for you! I'd love to up my herp count like that!

Nice! I might look into them in the future& as for the boa...
nothing out of the ordinary...just Boa constrictor constrictor [Red-Tail Boa]
I evently want to move up to "big" snakes.
Think the tree pythons...man they are gorgeous.
Simply gorgeous!! =D

@ the moment I have a very small herp count, 2 Eublepharis Macularis [leopard geckos],2 Trachemys scripta elegans [red ear slider turtles]& 1 Pantherophis guttatus [corn snake..which is a snow].

That'll all change soon
