    Hey thanks! It took a few hours to get everything balanced and set just right. It's my first setup.

    Here's another video of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLOOd21OKjk

    And one of my male Bumblebee trying to get my female to put out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1j9MF1FbEFw

    I've since ditched the OTB filter and went with a really nice canister setup. Much quieter and performs much better.

    My ball python Simba. He passed on a couple years ago. I'd like another, but it would never be the same. I used to ride my bike all over town with him around my neck. He was the best. A little over 5' long when he died. I had him for 16 years.

    It's probably just me so don't take this the wrong way please. And it is not my intention to denigrate your choice of pet but:

    Snakes are cool for sure and are an important part of the eco system. But you can't walk 'em, teach 'em tricks; can't teach 'em to talk like you can a bird. There not as active as fish nor as colorful as a fish or bird, you can't play with 'em like you can a cat. Can't race around a yard with 'em, hunt with 'em like a dog or a falcon/hawk/eagle or anything else one traditionally does with a pet. It's doubtful they get excited when you come home or when its time to eat. ETC ETC ETC

    I truly am interested in understanding the allur of owning a snake that could at just about any time decide to choke the life out of you and when/if there'd be nothing you could do about it.

    Push comes to shove humans have pets because they fill a need that the human has.

    What I'm asking I guess, is how a snake can fill any human need/why anyone would want one?

    I don't know, but Simba knew who I was and he responded to me when I was around him. Sure he didn't play fetch or bring me my slippers, but we still had a bond. He was gentle with me. Like I said, I rode my bike around town with him around my neck.

    A dog could any time decide to maul you to death. And Simba definitely got excited when it was time to eat.

    I guess it is just something you have to experience to understand.

    For one example, he was lost in our house for 2 months at one time. His tererrium was in my room at the time. When we finally found him, there were signs of him basically living in my room while he was "free". He was a really good pet for me. My mom wore him around her neck while she vacuumed a lot.

    i used to winder about the snake thing myself, but i got a ball python from a friend when he passed away, because no one wanted it. they have a personality, and like Dustin said, it wont get your shoes or the paper, but they definitely interact with you. he was gentle except the one time i stuck my hand in his cage while there was a rat in there. hurt pretty good and bruised the hell out of my hand, but he was a good snake.
