The Costa Family – Snake keepers and breeders who dabble in other hobbies.
Welcome to our site! This is the spot where we would like to share our journey as we try our hand in hobbies that provide more than the precious time we get to spend together.
One of our favorite hobbies is keeping and breeding ball pythons. This is one of the most rewarding hobbies we do as a family. Taking care of animals is a great vehicle for family bonding. It doesn’t matter if the animal has fur, feathers, or scales if it’s in the family’s care it provides a chance to bond.
Over time, our reptile room has turned into the family sanctuary without any need of special mandate. Stepping into that room changes your mindset. Something about being in a room with roughly 2 dozens animals makes you forget about those little irritations of life. Everyone chips in without the need of asking twice. Most of the time the adults don’t need to ask. If one of us is working in the snake room one or both of our daughters pops their head in to help. It’s easier to have them help clean snake poop than it is to have them fold socks.
So feel free to pop into our site from time to time. Hopefully, it’s a place where you can forget about life’s irritations for a bit and not clean snake poop or fold socks.
