Question Do you like snakes?

Hi all, i just got myself a 3 year old corn snake, i love playing with snake and watching them move/crawl, they are somewhat easy to take care of and beautiful creatures. I probably wouldn't say the same thing if i had a rattle snake in my room lol but snakes like boa, corn, king, milk are all types of snakes i like (personal opinion)

I was wondering what you guys think about them?

Mine is ~4ft long orange, black and beige

I will be posting pictures soon.

oh he isn't scared of them *LOL* far from it, he doesn't think they are appropriate around my daycare and in all honesty , he hates to see snakes in captivity, as he says, a useless pet unless you are studying them. they don't interact and they don't seek out friendship, not even from their own kind.

Bastien,I love all animals including snakes,but I prefer to think of them free in their own habitat,not in a glass-cage.
I am not criticizing you or your choice of pets,it's just my opinion.

I agree, i also think snakes are better off in their own habitat. I wouldnt take a snake from the wild and bring it into my home. To be honest i wasent really planning on getting a snake, i was looking to get a aquarium with fishs but saw him and decided to go with a snake instead.

The previous owner didnt have time for it so i decided that it would be better if i took him into my home

Live mices since that's what he's use to eating, one every 7-10 days

But i want to try frozen mices to see if he likes them since they are easier to feed and keep.
