What pleasure can we possibly receive from keeping an animal like this in our home, just curious. We’ve had dogs and cats, a guinea pig, but can’t say we were ever “attracted” to something like this, how about you?
MG, thanks for the article, after growing up and camping for years in S. Fl, we knew to be careful of rattlers (which attack only when they feel threatened), these on the other hand, seek you out, I’d imagine sleeping bag and all.
Wubzy and Pamela, I agree.
CF, no way, I’ve ridden some just like her!

  1. i live in austalia and one of my friends who is a friend of a friends friend this only happen a couple of months ago had a pet snake and she really loved the snake and cuddled up to the snake at night then she was getting worried about the snake when it stoped eatting took the snake to the vet and she found out the only reason the snake did not eat because it was getting ready to eat her . and snakes that usally when you sleep next to them are curled up this snake had its body staught which ment
    the snake was measureing her up to know how big the snake would have to grow to eat her

    i think ‘exict’ animals like that shouldn’t be pets. they aren’t domesticated or anything like that. they should be free in the environment they are meant to be. Those poor things are stuck in a cage all their lives verses being free in the wild. yeah there are people that like animals like that, thats great sure they are pretty and mysterious whatever but they are not really “pets”. people need to stop being greedy and really consider the consequences not only to themselves but to the animals as well.

    snakes just don’t do it for me. you can’t really pet, cuddle, walk, or play with it…. i can’t understand the reasoning behind having one. not only that, you have to feed them live animals… i know its nature for them to eat live rats, etc, but boy oh boy does it seem cruel to put another animal in a cage where it has no chance of getting away, to feed to another animal. i even hate the whole feeder fish tank, or seeing feeder fish in with oscars, etc… like i said i know its nature, but nature doesn’t contain its prey, the prey usually has a chance to escape.
    (my sisters boyfriend had some type of snake and he had put a rat in the cage, that poor rat was in the cage for 3 days! i eventually got up enough nerve to do a rat rescue, and you know what, the rat was a pretty good pet.)

  4. i think i am already having a dog which kills my mind his name is pulkesh . it is curious

  6. let's go pens! hockey rocks

    wow, so should I get rid of my albino dwarf hamster!?!?! AHHH!!!!

    Anyways, that’s a little weird!

  7. My ex room mate had a python, I always thought it was stupid to keep non-native reptiles as pets. Wild pythhons now inhabit the southern United States due to owners releasing, and have established a poputation.

  8. Ha ha ha. Sucks to be that guy. I think when you get a pet, any kind of pet you think “I feed it, I love it, it knows I’m king so it wont hurt me.” Then it does hurt you. Sometimes its just a scratch, sometimes it strangles you to death. So I think its just a blind matter of preference. Snakes are pretty good pets when they are not eating babies and stuff. The are low maitnece, infrequent eaters and easy to clean up after.

  9. This is what happens when we think we can keep a “wild animal” as a pet…Stuff happens…

    SNAKES ARE A POPULAR PET, BUT THEY ARE STILL WILD ANIMALS. IT IS DANGEROUS TO HAVE THEM AROUND THE HOUSE, FOR ADULTS (AS SEEN IN STORY) BUT ESPECIALLY FOR CHILDREN AND OTHER PETS IN THE HOUSE. I WOULD NEVER HAVE ONE AS A PET, BUT I’LL GO TO ANY PETTING ZOO IF I CAN SEE THEM IN A CONTROLLED ENVIRONMENT. THEY ARE BEAUTIFUL CREATURES, NO MATTER HOW DANGEROUS THEY ARE.

    I think the story speaks for itself………………..

  12. My sister had a snake but when it got to 10 feet long and she started having dreams about it attacking her, she realized it was time to get rid of it
