    Hey, thx for answering Bubbles and smoothcriminal !!!

    @ Bubbles: Wow 2 meters ? That's big, plus giving the picture i'd be scared to death if i had it around me. Will it continue to grow ?

    For some reason i find albinos snake less scary, they look less dangerous as they're nicer maybe. I'm referring to snakes that look like mj's yellow snake and the one that Britney Spears brought on stage during an MTV awards performance.

    I was going to ask you if what smoothcriminal said was true but given your reaction i guess it is. Thx for mentionning this fact smoothcriminal.

    Are snakes that freakin um smart and evilish ? Maybe i should not say evilish, it's their instinc, but still i'm amazed. What smoothcriminal said makes me think of the following video which i discovered this morning thx to a friend of mine. I'll ask you this in advance:

    Can you freakin believe this ? Is this real ? Or like a tv show ? I wanna punch the parents, their attitude (crocodile tears, etc..) makes me think. Hypocrites trying not to go to jail.



    Given the following video, there are other "parents" that are reckless to say the least:

    No worries, glad that I can be of assistance. He's about that (2 metres) and Carpet Python's can grow at big as 20 metres in the wild though of course, but because LG is kept in capativity I doubt if he will end up growning that big, but may grow a little more I have him well secured as I've mentioned before so it is very unlikely that he'll be able to escape without me knowing.

    To be completely honest with you I used to be completely terrified of snakes, doesn't matter what sort they were or how big they were, I was just horrifed by them, it was then my nephew who also has a the same type of snake as LG showed me different and that snakes aren't the monsters that alot of people make them out to be, 9 times out of 10 they attack because they are frightened or feel threatened.

    I mean try and see it from their point of view, how are they to know that you are harmless to them, from where they are looking from all they see is this huge monster coming near them or at and because they can't get away quick enough or tell you to leave them alone the only way they can tell you to back off is to attack, I'm not saying everyone should have a snake as a pet or are they the perfect pet for everyone either but I do believe that they are very misunderstood creatures by some of the stories that have been told.

    Personally I don't know anyone who has had that sort of an encounter with a snake, but I have heard of it happening, like I mentioned before my nephew's father used to breed snakes and never had anything like that happen to him before but I'm not saying that it won't happen either.

    But then again how is it any different then you going lets say grocery shopping and on the off chance you get hit by a car, it really isn't any different except you'd probably have more chance of preventing getting eaten by the snake then you have saving yourself from the car. Its simple really if your snake is showing behaviour that you find extremely unnatural for the animal take it to the vet, the same you would if your cat or dog were acting different.

    I wouldn't say that they are intellegent creatures, but they are just like humans in a way for example the 1st time you become a parent do you know everything there is to know, no you don't you learn on the way about all different types of things, but your basic instincts that you never knew you have take over and doesn't matter how experienced you are you know how to take care of the child, to feed it, to bathe it, to seek medical attention when its not well ect ect its the same as a snake or any animal for that matter it doesn't need to be taught cause it has natural instincts.

    Now about the video you posted although I may sound like a heartless bitch about it, it is really the parents fault, I mean who in their right mind would leave their child with a 3 tonne python, it doesn't matter how long you've had an animal they can always turn on you in blink of an eye. I do feel sorry for the parents and like I said I may sound like a bitch about the incident but anyone who has a brain would know in their right mind to never leave a child with a pet snake unsupervised regardless how old they are. Snakes aren't like dogs or cats and they need to be monitored constantly so then that way no harm comes to the pet or other people.

    HOWEVER I'm going to say this so people don't think that I'm just saying you should have a snake.... If you feel that you wouldn't be able to put in the time that is needed to take care of a snake then DON'T GET ONE or again if you are a family person that is eventually going to look at settling down and having children in the future, then you should really have a really hard think about whether having a snake is right for you as a family pet and if you've decided to have one, what sort are you going to get, where are you going to have its cage, is it going to be secure where you put it so you don't have to be checking every 5 minutes ect ect, its not just as easy as getting a licence, buying a tank and throwing the snake in it, just like any other animal it needs love and attention

    ..I won't watch them, from your description, they're full of emotional impact...


    Snakes are totally unpredictable lives, and the way they are crawling and are so quiet and them sticking their forked tongue to breathe looks just disgusting and dangerous to me. I just wish I could understand snakes, I would love to, but I can't, I don't find anything about them to be endearing or beautiful, they're cold-blooded reptiles, and I'm one to be fond of some others reptiles, except Komodo dragons (another horror of nature to me)... So yeah...

    :huggy: its okay everyone is different, you don't like snakes and I completely understand that, just as I'm completely terrified of toads and bloody spiders. I have been known to have my parents come running literally because of my screaming from spiders or toads.

    So there is no need to wish to understand snakes, everyone is different I've just been shown a different side of them to what you see which is probably why I come across as I do.

    That's sweet of you to say all this..^ I don't like spiders and bugs either... and am terrified with mice and rats if I see some in some forgotten shack or even resided home.. ...

    I mean I would pet snakes if someone reliable would be holding them making sure they don't bite me.. but nothing more than that. ..^
