Little pet snakes


I have wanted to own snakes since I was just a little girl. For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by these remarkable creatures. My father enjoys recalling an incident where I came racing home on roller skates holding a garter snake in my hands. I would also hunt down turtles and lizards as often as possible. We would keep them for a few days and then release them into the wild. I was never allowed a pet snake as a child. I don't blame my parents for their decision. We had no idea how to care for them!

As an adult I have kept snakes and other reptiles as pets, including Leopard Geckos, Savannah Monitors and Red-Ear Sliders. When I became pregnant with my daughter my husband and I made the difficult decision to give up our reptiles: we felt at the time that it was better for our daughter that we not have the salmonella or the constriction risk, as we owned, at the time, some very large constrictors and I was interested in venomous snakes.

Before purchasing a snake, I was very well researched. I have included some excellent research links at the bottom of this article, and you should take the time to give them a look-see before proceeding to check-out. Many resources contain information about the choice of first snake. I like to spin things, however, and that's what I'm about to do. I will give you the typical options, of course, but you must make your own decision in the end. Please just ensure that you do your research before making a purchase!
