    Wasn't sure myself. Ive seen them on a few vids, are they burrowers like the baboons? I could google it but I haven't spoken to you for awhile. And its my day off so laziness has kicked in :D

    Yes, they are burrowers. Apparently they can burrow quite a distance too

    i'd agree with the corn snake, i was going to get one but my son and i decided against it. Rubber Boa if you can find them for sale, are said to be the most docile snakes in the hobby. I always wanted a baby hognose just to watch them play dead with their mouth open too ;)

    So, @Shampain, do you have any spider powers? Have you developed two pedipalps on your face or anything? Spider sense? Are you molting right now?
