We're thinking about getting a pet snake. I've done some research but I still have a few questions. I hoping someone here can help!
I am considering either a Ball Python, a King, or a Corn snake. Do you think one is better than the other?
Where should one get the snake? I see pet stores, individuals and rescue organizations as potential providers.
I want to make sure that it is tame. Is it best to get a snake when it's young or is adopting an older snake okay? Are tame older snakes owner-centric or will they carry over their good behavior to a new owner?
If you get a snake from an owner how can you evaluate the overall health of the snake? Are there any tell-tale signs to look for?
Thanks for your advice!
If you want to pet something, get something with some fur... Even a rat is more satifying than a snake to touch... I used to have a python... It cost me more nights of love than a quarter sized cold sore would have... It takes a rare breed of woman to like one, and it is even rare among men to like them... I think I liked mine because I hated rats, but compared to the cat he ate, rats never give up, and will use every strength they own to sink their teeth into the snake crushing them... I have a lot of respect for rats, but I still think snakes are cool...
In retrospect, I could have stood more snakes and less empty of love one night stands.. It does not matter how many times you multiply nothin because you still have nothing, and that was my relationships back then... Lots and lots of nothin... Nothing from me, not what was needed, not love; and lots of nothing from them... I should have bought a bunny...
Adopting a snake... You are really a clown... You are never going to teach a snake nothing... You would stand a better chance with a republican... They have no good behavior, or bad behavior... They is what they is.. There is not a dimes worth or difference between the most and the least of them...There isn't a single college football player in the country who is less of brain and more of body... They are God's own artifact of a bygone age... Were they not so perfectly adapted to their climate and food supply they would have been gone long ago....
