By all means, if you think you can responsibly maintain your collection and it's what you WANT to do, then you should give it another shot. If, on the other hand, you find yourself slacking, then why put yourself through a guilt trip and make yourself and the animals unhappy? There was a time when I had over 160 animals which included everything from small boas to reticulated pythons. The thrill was gone as it was more of a hassle than it was worth. It was draining both my time and financial resources, so I downsized a LOT. I've no desire to ever keep that many animals again. That's why I suggested you do the same. You may find keeping 2-3 animals more enjoyable. If not, then you should give it up for awhile.
