    Pets

    I grew up having snakes as pets.  When I would visit my dad he'd let me hold Shena all the time.  She was so beautiful and I was deeply fascinated by her scales and most of all her shedding.  I thought it was the coolest thing.  As I got older and my cruelty...

    Although...

    I don't want to be anywhere near a poisonous snake.  Otherwise, I love snakes.  I want to have a pet snake, but I've heard they're a lot of work, and i'm too lazy right now, lol. My brother and I used to play with gardner snakes all the time as kids.

    I Love My Snakes

    and I intend to bred them. I keep Columbian boas.   They are beautiful fascinating animals that never fail to make me happy. Each one's pattern is as unique as our fingerprints.

    Actually I Love Them

    I have held several snakes in my life, I think they're cute. My best friend used to own one and I held it a few times. I used to keep an eye on it while she cleaned out it's home. I've held large ones and small ones, they feel so cool and they are beautiful creatures.

    Never Have

    I never have been, nor probably never will be. My brother is terrified of them though. He can't stand going to a reptile zoo because he knows they'll be there.

    Hee.

    I've never been one to fear snakes. When I was younger, my mom signed me up for a science class which involved us being outside and being with nature... the teacher was a *****, but the class itself was actually pretty damn cool. He would bring in snakes sometimes, or we'd catch...

    Enjoy Catching Them For My Youngest Daughter

    In the summer, when I'm out in the yard, I often see snakes. Sometimes I'm even able to catch them. Why do I bother? Because my youngest daughter is fascinated by them. I'm not the least bit afraid of them, but I bother to catch them because of the delight and wonder on her...

    I Was Laughing...

    My ex husband and I were going to pick up our son. While walking to the school a snake slithered across the street in front of us. I pointed this out to my ex who proceeded to jump back and yell. *giggling*

    I've Never Been Afraid Of Snakes

    I always liked handling pets, and never was scared of snakes I encountered outside. That common fear of snakes that people have, I've never had that. I live in the country, and I work outside. As a result, I often come across snakes, Gopher Snakes, King Snakes (with their...

    I Use To Be

    But not anymore. I even own a snake. She's a beautiful ball python that sleeps at the foot of my bed. I let her climb all over me and sometimes I even walk around the house with her around my arm or neck. My sister is uneasy around her but she doesn't scream and run off like she...

    Me Neither

    Living in South Africa snakes are very common. You do what you can to give them time to move away from you and make a lot of noise when walking through the bush etc. I have had many face to face encounters with venomous snakes in the wild and never found it that frightening. You...

    Snakes Are Cool

    I've always liked snakes.  Now I do NOT like poisonous snakes.  I don't dislike them, but don't want to go near them.  I got to have a very loooong albino python drape across my shoulders onto the shoulders of the guy next to me and it still touched the...

    I am not afraid of snakes,

    in fact I love them. I love the feel of their cool bodies against my skin, I love their strength. I once went out with someone that had the same passion for snakes as I do and he let me play with it. I took it everywhere, when we went out in public I would have wrapped around my...

    I Like Them

    I actually think they're kind of cute. Especially the bright green ones. I think it's those eyes of theirs. Or maybe its how much smaller they are than what they eat. Or the tongues. I don't know, I just find them to be endearing instead of repellent like a lot of people do.
