    I wanted a snake or tarantula and got shot down. Geek's squeamish abt spiders (you should here the yelp and flurry of vengeance when he finds one in the house.) Apparently snakes are a nonstarter as well. Then again. I was the one to shoot down fish ( I would live in perpetual fear of an aqaurium failure related flood.) We agreed on the mutt(s) and potential offspring.

    Wait, hang on, so you didn't tell the wife to say that was the name you were using? What's going on?! Sheer anarchy, I tell you!

    Sounds like my kind of snake. My friend with the Python was bitten several times. He eventually gave him to another giant snake enthusiast.

    Tristan's bff has a pet tarantula and we have a friend with a pet snake. I think I like 4 legged beasts the best. One of my uncles kept a snake pit in the wall in his house and when I saw that at 8 years old, I freaked out. Would never allow a snake or bird in my house ever. I would be ok with a tarantula though.

    Ah, I do not have the space or enthusiasm for a giant snake. I honestly wonder how ethical it is to sell the larger snakes in pet stores. Not that people who do the necessary preparation should be denied them, but I've seen 10 year olds walking out of stores with small reticulated pythons. I wonder if their mom knows that little snake could grow to be 20 feet. I am guessing not based on the number dumped in the Everglades.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    That's too bad. Snakes can be great pets. They don't bark, they don't need a litter box, they don't mark your furniture or need walks. They are cheap to feed. They are relatively cheap to house. They can also be very friendly. My old snake used to sit in my hand and watch TV.

    15 years or so on average.

Even when they 'bite' they mainly fake it and just smack you with their nose. It's one of the things I like about them - little guys that act tough but are really cuddly little suckers.

    I like the name too, sadly I can't take credit for it
    Ohhhh myyyy *ssssqqqqqqqqquuuuueeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee*
    A wittle hognoses!

    I LOVE them!

    i am typically girly horrified by poisonous snakes but find nonpoisonous snakes to be delightfully adorable

    i saw a baby (corn snake iirc) snake at a pet store a few months back, and communed for a minute. he split his whole head in half making a yawn motion and i was all a-squee

    he was expensive tho. so he didn't come home with me.
    beautiful
    yeah you are

    I mean there's so many ants in my eyes! And there are so many TVs, microwaves, radios... I think, I can't, I'm not 100% sure what we have here in stock.. I don't know because I can't see anything! Our prices, I hope, aren't too low!
