:smt006 Hi all :smt006

I think it is time to introduce myself, I am 13 years old :D
Reptiles and arachnids fascinate me, I have loads of Tarantulas.
At the moment I have the following reptiles:
Male/female/unknown
1.1.0 dumeril boa's
0.1.0 kenyan sand boa
0.0.1 madagascan ground boa
0.0.1 Amazon tree boa
0.1.0 Albino burmese
2.1.0 Red tail boa's
0.1.0 BRB
1.1.0 yellow anaconda
Soon to come a pair of False water cobras. :D
0.0.3 leopard geko's
1.1.0 blue tongued skinks

If any of you ppl could help me with the scientific names of the snakes I would be very grateful.
It looks as though this site will teach me lots.

Kind Regards

Hi and welcome. Where are you situated? You need to get the Madagascan boa sexed. Finding a mate for that should be your priority.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Hi and welcome.
