So, a thought I had. Is there a “too many” when working with multiple different species of animal?
There are SO many snake species I absolutely love and would like to breed someday, but… how many is too many?
Currently I am breeding ball pythons and western hognoses.
I plan to work with blood pythons, Colombian rainbow boas, tricolor hognoses, and kingsnakes.
I’d love to breed boa constrictors and possibly garter snakes in the future.
I plan to personally stick entirely to snake species though, at least for now. My fiancé and I’s boyfriend (we’re in a poly relationship… another rather odd thing about me) LOVES lizards in particular, and also wants to help with the business when he eventually moves in with us. So he’ll be the “lizard guy” while I’m the “snake gal”
He’s also from Florida so totally a Florida man. Our long term goal is to move to Florida, actually. It’s great.
Anyways, back on topic: Do you think breeders should only specialize in a few species of reptile, or is it acceptable for them to work with many different species?
I personally just LOVE all kinds of snakes, and am also doing it so I have a nice variety to offer when vending at shows and selling online. So what are your thoughts?
