(Very nasty snake)

Had one a long time ago - it was a wonderful animal 99% of the time. The herp club I belonged to at the time used to borrow it for group pictures as a fundraiser for the local zoo - it always behaved itself and was very popular.

That other 1% could be, uh, memorable, especially when it was going through puberty (no kidding) and mellowed out somewhat after that, but after it grows past the 14" length, a snake generally gets its way - it trusted me but was vicious around my soon to be ex (funny what animals know). It was beautiful, huge, made for a fascinating co-existance, but not a pet. Wish I still had the pictures and negatives...

I stick with the desktop snakes now (old Kodak P&S picture - need to get some better ones of it with my kids). Kids, snakes, and close supervision is a rewarding experience.
