Tell me wise but I never would bring a snake into my house. If you decide otherwise you should first follow the advice of Pet Snakes.
Before you even think of bringing a snake home you need to know as much as you can about them…
At minimum you want to be able to answer basic questions like these:
- How big will it get?
- How big of a cage does it need?
- What does it eat?
- Do snakes have any diseases?
- Does it need special lighting or heating?
- How much will the snake and everything else cost?
The point isn’t to know just answers to a few generic questions but to know as much as you possibly can.
Extracted from “Convincing your family about a pet snake” by Pet Snakes who says about them: “We are just a few like-minded folks who enjoy learning about and discussing snakes. We love all reptiles, but the purpose of our blog is to focus on snakes”.
What a great post! I’ve never thought about the requirements for snake ownership. This reminds me a bit a Dr Suess story about a goldfish which was fed too much food and ended up being moved to the local pool. I can’t remember the name of the book.
Thanks for popping round to my blog.
