Flickr Favourites

1. Ball Python - Python regius, 2. Spider Ball Python, 3. Albino ball python, 4. Pastel Ball Python

I know snakes are not to everyone's liking, but I love them and miss my Ball Python :( One day I will have another one when we have the space and the money to take care of one properly. While they are low maintenance pets, they still need proper containment, proper food, and you should have a vet that can treat the snake if something happens to it. Also not being squeamish touching dead rats helps :p

For more Flickr Favourites head on over here :)

My 'baby' brother always kept pythons, garter snakes and an iguana and now his teenage daughters have carried on the tradition - adding tarantulas and exotic toads to the menagerie.
So I'm not worried about snakes, but much prefer furry four legged pets :o)

great photos

They look lovely in the images! I watch snakes from a distance and am fine but I am not altogether comfortable with handling them, although I have done.
I would sooner see them from afar....

We are awash with highly poisonous snakes here: our backyard Blue Tongue kept them in check when I was little at home. I don't see them as pets but I know they are low maintenance and very cool!!!! As well as poikiothermic??

I adore this beautiful animal!!!! I used to have beautiful one, but my husband hated her =) when my daughter was just over 1 yrs old she took her out of her box and was freaking out =D and said we must give it away....so I did, and every now and then I go visit her =)

I'm not that fond of snakes at all - brrr - I don't want to come across one if it's not behind glass! ;)

Those are beautiful snakes. I love them too, used to catch them when I was little, but the 'pee' on you, and you can't wash the smell off, something that didn't bother me so much at 10 years old.
Ontario has lovely black rat snakes that cling to trees and you've reminded me about the time I rescued one that was hanging over our campfire (warming?). When I pulled him off, I guess my arm was warm, and wrapped around that. Yep, I like snakes too. Wouldn't want to deal with the dead rats though.
PS. Happy little holiday.
