Aaaaaaaaaaargh! That is not for me. In my area they are associated with voodoo and sorcery. They look scary too Pixabay

Snakes make very good pets, although as I get older I think they should be left in the wild. I had a Burmese Python once that I rescued from a neglectful owner. He had pneumonia and I nursed him back to health. I build him a 6 foot by 4 foot cage that was 5 feet high and put some climbing things in there for him and he was very happy. Sometimes he could come out of his cage, I have no idea how because I never found his escape spot. He would curl up on my lap or follow me around the apartment. Sometimes he would move his head against my cheek as if stroking it. I don't know why because they say reptiles don't feel love but perhaps he did. When he got too big for me to safely handle I gave him to a herpetologist (snake specialist) and when I last saw him he was in an entire big room that had its own little pond, real trees, and real rocks and dirt. I think he was very happy.

@stbrians But he didn't because I showed him love and took care of him.

Having snakes as pets should be banned. They are not domestic animals.

Not in my area. Here it is associated with bewitching. People just keep them

Depending on the knowledge one has on snakes they can indeed make a good pet. No they are not fluffy and cuddly like puppies and kittens but they are interesting to watch. It can also depend on what type of snake they have. Where I am from they are not used in such ways as voodoo or sorcery they are just cool to watch and can be used in teaching children about the reptilian race. Many people fear snakes due to the reputation of the venomous ones but its all about how one chooses to educate themselves.
