      LOVE the butterball (looks like a lesser platinum to me?) and the pied.

      My dream is an axanthic pied. Maybe someday.

      The butter is part of the BEL complex - some think that butter and lesser are the same thing. I think they have subtle differences.

      And an axanthic pied would be awesome! My favorite pied combo is the panda pied!! (super cinnamon pied)

      I will most definitely be looking into getting one. There is a reptile show near my house so i'm going and checking out prices. I have to save money first. The Mk5 payments are killer lol

      I understand that! I finally paid my MKIV off this past oct. So I'm hoping to have a little extra "snake money" this year.

      How much for that second cornsnake, looks like he has a skull pattern on his dome.

      The second cornsnake is just a caramel - they're about $30-40 as a hatchling. Though this one has a lot of hets and is a proven breeder, so she's worth prob in the $200 range.

      Here's a ghost blood - you can really see her "skull" pattern!

      I really like ball pythons more than corn snakes. I had 1 corn and it was too active and hard to handle, IMO. I much prefer the ball pythons as they just sorta hang out and they "hang" onto you, so you don't have to worry about dropping them or anything.

      We have 1 or 2 snakes that hiss and will take a defensive position and I don't mess with those obviously...or the giant (preggo) female we have. But, I think they are pretty mellow and non threatening once you handle them.

      I'm sort of the opposite. My bps are recluses and I hardly see them out. I also love the assortment of colors corns come in. But really I think they're both great!! Each has their own quirks.

      the closest thing we have to a pet snake

      this was two years ago I think. It's now grown and I see it in the yard from time to time.
