    Palm beach

    any shop in palm beach county that might sell me ends and scrap for practice guy at the welding supply store told me that i could go to Fowler sheet metal but I couldnt catch them today they closed befor i could make it over there. I also tried A-1 Industrial supply but the woman behind the counter had the bead side manner of circus lion and was about as help full as poke in the eye. Although there price is good on tubing I figure why buy good metal untill im building some thing.

    Ill pay by the LB if you like not looking for a free ride just looking for diffrent sizes of flat and tubing to practice on.

    If you had given it an appropriate title, it might have helped a bit. I assumed it was about where to vacation or how to pick up free coconuts.

    What; you expect me to give away trade secrets? Besides, I'd rather ask what neat reptiles are in your area!

    Old iron as far as intresting reptiles Coral snakes take the cake one of the worst venoms in america consideed stronger than the western rattle snake but a much lower bite rate and gourgeous looking creature. Also it has a impersonator snake that looks almost just like it.

    I've never had a Coral although I know a few people who have had. My first venomous was a small Copperhead and the largest a Pacific rattler; the weirdest was a Great Basin R> (Crotalus viridis lutosis) that grunted like a pig!
    I've only caught one Calif. Mountain King, (close, but not the impersonator) but lots of Common Kings, and Ringnecks and Sharptails...
    All of which reminds me I never sent my address to the researcher I heard last month giving a talk about behavior of Mojave Green Rattlers. He also had pictures of a male C.oreganus guarding a nest for two months, even after the female ('mother') left.

    More than just an amateur.
    One of the locals, a friend of a friend, became the first official Herpetologist with the US Fish & Game decades ago.
