Hi, I'd just like to introduce myself. I am brand new to the forum, and also in a way a brand new herp enthusiast. I'm currently an incoming college freshman who has always loved but could never have a reptile before because my mom hates them. I spend a lot of my time doing research on these little scaly dudes and am planning on getting my first ever reptile, a ball python, the summer before my sophomore year of college (my dorm only allows fish). I've been in love with reptiles, snakes more specifically, for as long as I can remember. I've always thought they were really cool and cute little creatures that were very misunderstood because of how different they are. I'm hoping at some point to be able to build custom enclosures for my herps and educate the world on how docile and friendly these creatures really are. I'm excited to be on the forums!
