    Yeah I agree too, see i think its really silly to be scaried of something because you feel you have too.

    Your second point, however, i dont agree as you can say that about any living thing on this planet!
    yup

    yeah that is true. i just really dislike them intently

    He has only bitten my dad once, when i was on holiday, as he feed him and didnt wash his hands when he went to pick him up. He could smell the mouse on him and believed his finger was one. Their eyesight isnt that good, they taste the air.

    Not sure if i could get away with keeping him in a dorm tho, as some of the unis i have applied to, all dorms have cleaners. Dont think its really fair for my parents to look after him for a whole year, until i move into a house. Dont kno what to do.
    your parents doesn't like the snake? and ur dorm doesn't allow pets??

    I'd love living with someone who had a pet snake, more pets the better in my opinion.

    Snakes come longer and much much thinker than that, and they can swim which is scary.

    Have to say, I felt bad for the 12 ft Burmese python in that video. He just lived in a quite small terrarium without a lot of room. Poor guy...no natural habitat, either. I don't think snakes that get that big should be kept as pets, except (possibly) by herpetologists.

    Still, snakes are ******* awesome. Creepy (I get a primal thrill looking at them), but awesome. Do you feed yours live mice or frozen?

    The only animal in the whole world im scared of is a snake - big, medium, large im terrified. I guess you could call it a phobia, ive never seen one in real life but when i see them on tv i always put my feet up and keep looking around just to make sure there arent any about lol. If i found one in my house or garden i would move house. It makes me sad and scared to think that one of my neighbours could be keeping a boa constrictor as a pet.
    Ophidiophobia :yes: I'm absolutely terrified of snakes - even if they're behind glass at the zoo, can't look at them on TV (I bring my feet up too), can't look at pictures. They fill me with great anxiety, I've even been reduced to tears just by looking at a picture of a snake it scares me that much.

    OP, I'm sure some people wouldn't mind living with snakes... just check with them first obviously!

    Yeah i guess that cage was really small compared to the size of the snake. It had nowhere to hide eather. Although, snakes do like small spaces as they can freek out if the cage is too big. strange ay?

    I feed mine on frozen as i think its illegal to feed them live animals, they could damage the snake too, if its not used to live food. I allways make him think that its alive tho, so he keeps his primal instincts. lol

    Yeah. I dont think i would ever get a spider. They are really delicate and can splat if you drop them. They feel funny when you hold them too, which would make it even easier to drop!

    Yeah will prob end up them looking after him for that time. just think its a shame tho as they need to keep human contact to stop them becoming scaried......and i will miss him My dad would pick him up sometimes tho.
