we have a ball python & a milk snake....our 2 yrold(just turned)---loves them.we also have a bearded dragon & leopard gecko. The ball python is a great snake.. our cages are very secure.
I have a corn snake. The snake is in more danger from the kid than vica versa. They can harbour salmonella so wash hands before and after handling. Other than that they are REALLY easy to keep.
BTW Snakes can also harbour salmonella so use the same precautions there :)
So long as he doesn't try and use the snake as a jump rope or a belt.
try a dog face snake... the're nicer
Yep, our corn snake got out too. We actually found our though, about 5 months later, under a table by the front window. He was dry and dead.
He was a decent pet, but just keep your container secure.
Maybe? I don't know....
Why can't you just have a pet dog? =D
