    My Favorite Pet Snake.

    Among the 6-8 snakes I had before my divorce was my favorite, a 6 foot timber rattler. Still poisonous, I was the only one that could, or would handle it. Unfortunately, on the day I was to move him into new living quarters with me, my ex donated him to the N. Carolina zoo...

    2am and my a**hole snake is trying to eat

    himself again. This of course means I have to turn on all of the lights, get up out of bed, and grab a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Like, I know you hate the taste of alcohol but if you didn't try to eat yourself all the time I wouldn't have to put a Q-tip of it in your mouth.

    Fluffy

    Fluffy is the cowardly Kingsnake - he is a California Kingsnake. He will not eat live mice because one bit him when he was young and he is afraid of them. He is such a picky eater that he will only eat one particular sort of mouse, too.

    Well, I Have One.

    A lovely little desert-phase California King, named Demetri. I was originally going to get myself a ball python, but when I saw my little stripey guy slithering about, I knew I had to have him. He was my 21st birthday present to myself. I love my scalebaby.
