Bri's Blog Page
So, the ball python I was going to get was no longer available. So, I'm back on the hunt... I've found two that I liked and am going to figure out if they're available and good for me, soon.
I'm not sure if I told you, but my uncle is in town. I don't think I've ever talked about him. He's my mom's brother in law. He's one of my uncles that I'm close with.
Well, I was discussing with my mom about what ball python to get and my uncle basically starts to test whether I'm making a good decision. He's searching how big they get, what they eat, how aggressive they apparently can be... My mom then got pissy about, "Oh, I don't want a snake that big.." Just saying, ball pythons aren't dangerous. I think he just heard python and thought, "danger". I got annoyed with him but after I explained, he took my side. My mom started to say, "yeah, let's just get a corn snake". I told him that a ball python is a step-up from a corn snake and that there were no reasonable prices for corn snakes where we lived. So, we'd be paying like $90 for a corn snake, $70 for a terrarium, $25 for hideouts, $25 for fake plants, $15 for bedding, etc. That kind of adds up... Around $250. My mom just expected that Zeppelin and another corn snake would for surely get along.. And uhm, if they don't? Yeah, that's over $100 of getting it another habitat. We should just get a ball python and his things for under $150. It's a better deal and it's what I actually want.
So when my mom thought she'd just outnumber me, and said, "So, don't you think a corn snake would be better?" my uncle said, "Well, I think Bri is right. She wants to move up from a corn snake and it'd cost less. If you get a corn snake, you'd have to buy all the things for him and it'd cost about double more than the ball python." Something along those lines. So, I will be getting a ball python. We just need to find which ball python will work best for me.
I might know tomorrow...
She is the bigger one :)
