Jim and Harry,
It MUST be common, I started off w/ snakes and other herps. as a VERY young
boy, then on to beetles, scorpions and THEN plants, Aristolochias at first
then AROIDS (Caladiums at first) and other 'strange' plant families!
My last snake was a T`dadian rainbow boa named 'Iris' (the spanish word for
a rainbow is 'Arco Iris", or Iris' bow'. Lent her on a breeding loan a
few years ago, never heard a word from the guy who moved out of state!
You're quite right. I bred and raised green anacondas. The breeding female
died at 27 years old of congestive heart failure; she had an
ovario-hysterectomy at 25 years of age. I now restrict my love of animals to
30 aquaria; much easier to care for!
