Yeah, right, there's a bear-guy who became dinner thinking the same type of thing. They are wild animals, idiot.

I have loved snakes since before I knew how neat girls were. I've owned more than a dozen species, handled more than that, almost been killed by one pet (don't wrap a 7-foot black rat snake around your neck if you're alone), have run all around a number of states looking for 'em. Coolest animals ever.

Cool story bro time:

When my daughter was about 8, we went to Disney's Animal Kingdom. Way at the back, you can take a train to this part that has a petting zoo, and a working laboratory, and other cool stuff, including biologists who do occasional shows featuring some of their animals. One of them came out, got a crowd of a hundred people or so, and pulled out a big wooden box. He asked for a volunteer, and picked the 8 year old girl with the flowered dress and frizzy hair (I would assume because she fit the stereotype he was looking for). He warmed the crowd up with the old "OK, I'm gonna open the box and let you see what's inside, are you ready? She nodded. He opened the top of the box, she looked in and without a second's hesitation grabbed the five foot bull snake out and draped it over her shoulders.
The show fell apart. The guy's patter was absolutely based on a shriek and a run back to Mommy. He literally couldn't continue he was so completely flustered by what she had done.
I had never been prouder of her.

Nice. I see the Steve Irwin principle is still as healthy as ever. Continue to give attention, shows, contracts, etc to people who do crazy ass stuff because it gets a lot of views from people either vicariously living that base animal desire of always wanting to be on the escaping end of potentially mortal encounters, or waiting for the slip-up like a nascar fan waiting for the wreck. But it's ok for the circus manager because he can bring in the next lion tamer at a starter's wage instead of paying the veteran's fees.

I'm more or less with you, but...

I used to have a 4-1/2-foot Colombian boa. Nice snake. Because of it, I met a local reptile dealer. He told me a couple of stories that... well...

1) He had a friend with a large python. Went to the friend's house one day. Friend didn't answer, so he walked in. Python had the guy in a choke-hold, and almost had the guy's head all the way in its mouth. They had to kill the python to get it off him. Knives. Guts. Writhing, headless python. Gross.

2) He had a saw-scale viper. Extremely deadly snake. The antivenin was expensive, with a shelf-life of about 2 weeks. One day he asked himself "Why do I have this deadly, expensive thing in my home?" He donated it to a zoo.

I kept many snakes, from tiny grass snakes to a 12-foot Burmese. I would NEVER keep a "hot" snake, as the venomous ones are called. It's as dumb and irresponsible as home-brewing nitroglycerin.

Most people killed by large constrictor pets get complacent and violate rule # 1: never take a large snake out of its cage while you're alone. Two people, one boxcutter.

Link you should go.
I've raised snakes and dealt in them for twenty years now.
Had a Albino Burmese Python that was 12' - that was my biggest yet.
Lots of Boa's and I'm a huge fan of Corn Snakes
Not really interested in venomous though.
He writes about respect - respect is feeding the snake.
They are brutally stupid but excellent at staying alive. Once they're not hungry most of them don't recognize food for what it is.
Case in point Guy went to feed his Boa and chucked a small rat in the cage.
Went to work. Came home to a rat picking his teeth and the Boa minus the top of his head.
Underwater with a snake that big? I'd only do it carrying a razor sharp 10"-12" knife. I'd wanna get through in one slice.
Clyde Peelings had a Retic Python so big it looked like it was paper mache - until it moved. At moments like that you notice the thickness of the glass and you wonder pray if it's tempered.

Very cool story, and cool daughter! When I was a kid we went to the San Diego Zoo, and they had this petting zoo/animal display show. They pulled out this Burmese python and asked if there were any volunteers who wanted to help hold it. My parents tell me that not only did my hand shoot up in the air, I was halfway to the stage before they could blink. I was a rather shy and quiet kid, but the photo of me on that stage holding the tail end of a Burmese is that of the happiest kid in the world. And now I work with snakes as part of my job, so I'm still a pretty happy kid.
