Hello from deep south texas

ive kept reptiles on and off since i was 4 years old and our families first pet was 2 bearded dragons who both grew up with me. i am now in college and my girlfriend and i have decided to get back into the hobby. we have 3 beardies, 1 axolotol, 5 ball pythons, 1 grey banded kingsnake, 2 turtles, 2 leopard geckos, a blue tongue skink and several discus fish. reptiles have been my passion since i was a baby and dinosaurs were my first ever intrest ( thanks to the land before time). i grew up in the brush catching anoles, fence lizards, garter snakes, great plains ratsnakes, great plains skinks, red ear sliders and many more. we are located in kingsville texas. about 45 minutes from corpus christi and we hope to begin breeding some of our reptiles eventually.

Gray banded is pretty high on my list. They’re definitely one of my favorites that we have down here in Texas.

yeah for sure. i saw one when i was 12 and had wanted one ever since. the variability they have is crazy to me

Dang I’ve seen one in person twice. Never in the wild though.

Hello from another Texan, north Texas though near to the OK border. We are a corn family ourselves and plan on start breeding this spring.

I with had been as lucky as you at finding wild snakes! Only ever found one or two garters recently around our apartments and once when I was a lot younger stepped on a copperhead (thankfully didn’t get bit) while walking barefoot in a soggy swampy forest way way down south in my home state of Mississippi.
