My husband took a risk, knowing that I didn't really have a fondness for snakes, and went out and purchased one. At first I was a little angry, but when I saw her she was beautiful! A gorgeous black and gold pattern gave the appearance of skulls down her body. She was tiny, like a garter snake. But my fondness of her quickly dissipated when she quickly grew. Now eating full sized rats. It's so gross, you can her crushing the poor rats bones and it's insides squishing. And then her habitat is extremely difficult to clean. First, we have to find a way to get her into a closed container, then clean every leaf, branch, rock and dish by hand. It's so gross. In my opinion, if you're easily grossed out, a snake is not for you.
