What reptile would you get?

Postby mania » Sat Mar 31, 2012 12:43 am

Just out of interest sake, if you could get any reptile tomorrow, what reptile would it be? Not worrying about price, where its from, your experience if venomous or not etc, but the catch is you can't resell it or breed it?

Mine I would say would be a Russels viper or Komodo dragon.

I simply love the look of the sunglow boas, if I could afford one and if the Mrs would allow me another animal, that'd be my choice number one.

I would die happy with an Ethiopian Mountain Adder, Bitis parviocula.

Pied Retics or Super Motley Boas would have to be at the top of my list.
