"But after a while you understand that nothing happens if you respect the snake"

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

dahmers love zombie    [TotalFark]  
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.

It's easy to survive an encounter with an anaconda. You simply need to lack buns.

Do You like snakes? Do you like George Wendt? Would you eat snakes with George Wendt? Would you go see George Wendt in a snake eating-eating movie? While eating snakes with George Wendt?

I had the giant-snake-slithering-over-me experience when I was 6-8. I liked it but I don't seek out giant predators. The photographer may not be much heavier than the capybara one of the snakes ate.

I like spiders, which eat other bugs, as long as they stay in their webs.

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 love snakes, especially the larger kinds. Boas, pythons, anacondas, beautiful animals, and very sensual. I admit I have a fetish for being in the coils of a big snake, feels dangerous and hot.

/have a 17-foot Burmese python, has an entire bedroom to himself, when I let him roam 90% of the time he seeks me out and wraps around me and can stay that way for hours
//he's not picky, he'll coil anyone who's willing

Saw how the article keeps talking up the "lurking menace ready to attack sneaking beast" thing and laughed. That anaconda was getting ready to shed.

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 used to know a guy who kept dozens of venomous snakes in his rental basement apartment. Cobras, vipers and mambas.There's a subset of reptile freaks who love keeping the dangerous stuff.

Did the landlord know about this? Was anyone as outraged as they should have been?

Depends on the Black Rat snake. My guy is really calm and friendly. I don't put him around my neck anymore though because he has arthritis and needs more full-body support.

Yup. But there were others there.I doubt the snake could get one before getting hacked up by his friends.

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.
