Hello! Thought I’d go ahead and introduce myself since I’ve been creeping this place for far too long without an introduction thread. I’m Anna and I’m a new ball python owner, quickly turned hobbyist, from the great state of Texas.
Purchased my first ball python as NARBC in Arlington a few weeks ago to help get over my anxiety and fear towards snakes. Kinda helping, kinda not. Penny, the ball python, is very chill and has adapted well to his new home. I never thought I would own a snake, but here I am, and now I seem to be surfing morphmarket daily to view all the different ball python morphs. It’s fascinating to me.
I do plan on eventually breeding ball pythons (or attempting to at least) in the upcoming years (let’s aim for like 2022) with a collection I’ve already started accumulating. I’m not really interested in the money aspect of breeding. I think it would just be cool to have a successful clutch, ha-ha.
My current snakes:
1.0 Banana het. Piebald [Penny]
Getting in November:
1.0 Pastel Bamboo Yellowbelly [no name yet]
0.1 Pastel Yellowbelly Pied [no name yet]
0.1 Bamboo Pinstripe Yellowbelly [no name yet]
Getting between now and 2020:
One more male and three more females
Outside from this snake life I am a somewhat cool wife and a dog mom to three big doggos. I run a pretty cool crappy blog that I forget to post on for months at a time. I’m a fluid painter and teach classes sometimes at my local Michael’s store. I’m a big FPS gamer (xbone currently be recruited to join the ‘pc faboy race’ thanks to the husband), and my FIL has gotten me active in photography. My husband thought it’d “be cool to learn how to scuba dive” so I’m a certified diver now as well. Professionally I work in the transportation industry so that’s always ‘fun’ depending on the day.
Here’s some pics of me and my little family:
