Please dont..


Snakes are the best pets, depending on the breed. Start with a ball python. They don’t bark, jump on you, lick your face, eat your food, shed fur all over everything, whine, poop everywhere, etc like dogs. They don’t trip you, meow loudly, leave you unwanted dead things, shed cat hair all over everything like cats. When/if they do accidentally mistake your finger for food, it doesn’t spurt blood everywhere like a rodent bite. I literally had 2 tiny red marks for an hour, then it was gone. It didn’t even hurt. I still have a scar from the stupid hamster bite I got 2 years ago and my arm still hurts a day later from the rabbit bite I got yesterday. My snake eats once a week and he eats frozen thawed. Because he will only get 3 1/2 feet long, we will never have to feed live. He tolerates my high strung child far better than any of her other pets have and he will just chill out with us for hours on the couch. People have this unmerited fear of any and all snakes that if they would just give them a chance, they’d change their minds. I have handled snakes since I was a little girl thanks to my mom teaching me at a young age that there is nothing to fear. I have taught my daughters the same way and they love our snake.

Because people like different things maybe?

Why would a snake be wandering a house instead of being in its proper enclosure? And the term is venomous, and only experienced keepers have them and they need a licence. Doubt a random person is gonna be let to have a venomous one.


I have a young male ball python, and he lives in a 20 gallon vivarium. to put it into perspective it is an enclosure that is relatively small compared to a medium-sized dog crate. Once you really get to know more about snakes, they really do become less creepy.

Right off the bat, I would just like to say that there is no such thing as a poisonous snake, only venomous ones. I would also like to add that if someone were to do research on how to care for a snake, they would likely find that it would be wise to keep a snake in an enclosure. Snakes can be wonderful animals once you get to know them, and they really can make great companions.

Snakes can really be a great option for people who do not have the time for mammals and birds, or people that are allergic to other animals. They occupy less space, and the monthly cost of their food is relatively low.

The snake does NOT know its owner. Its just a next meal. The snakes dont want to be hold and be left alone. There is no love and compassion with cold blooded reptiles. There isnt any connection. They.are preditors and hunt for food. They live their lives, thats it. Cage cleaning, hot smelly rooms, no thanks. There isnt ant any befits keeping reptiles. But everybody is different. I accept this. Its not for me. Snakes owners, please, please be extremly careful. You never know. I dont wish anyone pain and death.
