    I got rid of my Ball Python a couple months ago, I hope eventually I will have another snake in my life.

    Please take my share of the snakes. I will no longer own any kind of reptile after owning an iguana for 8 years that grew to 4 feet long. Iggy (god rest his soul), was a major work load, and I couldn't even ride him. I don't know about snakes, but I know reptiles are not domesticated animals, well I only know about Iggy, and wasn't a cuddly pet. He lived for his veggies & hot rock.

    Igunanas, in my opinion, are not good pets. I have two bearded dragons that are amazing, and so are my snakes. It's very common for iguanas to become aggressive when they mature. It's all a matter of researching to see what fits you best.

    Probably why they don't sell them in petstores anymore. For awhile there, seemed every petstore had bunches for sale. Then it stopped, amen to that. Everytime I touched him or his cage I had to wash everything down because of salmonella germs. Cleaning his habitat was the worst, his poop smelt like rotten vegetables. Iggy was never aggressive, he only whipped his tail once because he was afraid of the dog, but he certainly was not friendly. He preferred to just lay around on his hotrock, he did like to be scratched when he was shedding. Then I had to scrub out my nails after that.

    I don't have any at the moment, but will eventually own another. I had two red tails and a ball python. I think the ball is my favorite so far. The red tails were allways just a bit more aggressive, but they could have not had enough handling.

    I traded my red tail boa for an iguana and I really wish I hadn't. My boa was a mean girl and I didn't need something that was so aggressive and could get over 8ft! So I traded her to my local petstore's manager for a juhvenile iguana I called ChiChi. He was so unaffectionate and was a pain in the butt to get to eat.I had him only 6 months before he died unexpexctedly and I really think he died out of spite! Lol except for the boa, every snake I've ever had has been so loving and a really great coldblooded companion :)

    Iguanas are still sold here in the droves unfortunately. I used to work at a pet store and people would want to buy their 8 year old made me laugh because they obviously did NO research on them.

    But yeah, hands down Ball Pythons are the mosy friendly, passive snakes I've ever owned. I love them!
