A scammer called my phone a few minutes ago. After being told that he has the wrong number, the dude apologized multiple times, then wished me a merry Christmas. Hey who doesn't love a friendly dude with a heavy accent trying to get information from you? o;
How are you sure that was a scammer, Slender? :o

I hate pythons or snakes. :( I'm always afraid I'll get constricted or bitten savagely even though they're slow as hell at normal conditions.

Also I've never participated in a formal debate. I suppose some conversations I've had can be considered debates but I always just stay in the sidelines if I can. Unless it's like a friendly sort of debate with no one getting annoyed and people just wanting honest opinion.

I love every kind of animal but a little cautious about the ones that can kill me.

I think he was asking me for information. But he was speaking too quickly and I couldn't quite understand most of what he said.

Most snakes are relatively nice, though? They generally only bite people out of fear or self-defense. My snake is an aggressive little thing, but it's because she's young and afraid of me. She's getting easier to handle, though (last time she didn't want to go back into the aquarium).

I like most animals, even if they are potentially dangerous. The opossum that chills out on my back porch is just adorable, despite how dirty s/he is. <3

Those are the type of arguments I go into whenever I find a user on a thread thinking he/she is right, and I always lose to that user.

I've never been "hugged" by a snake, Ive only ever touched one snake in my life and that was someone's pet boa constricter at a pet store once. Im pretty ok around snakes and even find them interesting, Im not sure Id ever keep one though, I might draw the line there.

Heh. It's probably a weird feeling.

I secretly want to keep a reptile as a pet when I work

My only reptilian pets were/are my bearded dragon (which had to be given away) and my corn snake. The corn has proven herself a good pet after only 2 months. She's so cuddly and cute <3

There's nothing like having a young snake wrapped around your fingers, completely calm and just chilling out there. Oddly enough, she actually used to be an aggressive little beast of a snake. Bit and struck at everyone who tried to pick her up (aside from when I took her to a class for a presentation on corn snakes).

I think it would be weird haha, not sure if I would even want to be hugged by a snake.It might be ok as long as I didnt get strangled but I wouldnt let a snake near my neck anyway. If I was gonna keep a reptile, it would be a lizard or turtle, I guess a pet snake would be interesting too.

We have turtles for pets you know, so you can find one that closely resembles it, but it's based off of a snapping turtle, which don't make good pets.

If you reared a Komodo Dragon, chances are it would never try to eat you and you'd be able to form a bond/friendship with it. There's a couple in Africa that did this with a sick Hippo calf, and since then it still practically lives with them and has never lashed out at them despite being a fully grown adult (hippos are the world's most aggressive animal btw).

Maybe in that case a Komodo Dragon might not be aggressive around humans but other animals it may be a different story, I mean Im not keeping that kind of thing in the house with a small cat, I prefer a more conventional pet ^^; The most exotic animal Ive kept is a parakeet.

Pretty much any pet would have to be away from your cat, though? Unless it's a dog or another cat. Snakes really do make good pets, though. Unless you're squeamish around (potentially dead) rodents. I've grown used to having to handle dead newborn mice and it doesn't even bother me anymore.

The problem I have with having a pet snake is feeding it live food( or dead rodents) because I hate seeing dead animals. Im not squeamish,just disturbed to see it.

The same can apply to monitor lizards, as you can feed it live food (from what I know from the weird side of youtube).

Cat dissection would be considered as cruel since people have bonds with both cats, dogs, and horses.

Get a constrictor, then. The method of feeding a mouse to a small constrictor (larger ones eat (a) rat(s)) is pretty simply and you never need to see it, dead or alive. Even if it's live, the people at the pet store may kill it for you (the ones at mine will) upon your request. Then you just put the snake in the paper bag with the mouse and set it in the tank. The only times you would need to see the mice would be when they're alive (and only when the pet store staff is showing you to find out how big of a mouse you need).

I don't mean to push it on you, by any means. You seem interested, though, so I'm just (attempting) to help out. (:

I've worked with hundreds of snakes, ranging from corns to retics to even green anacondas. Never get tired of them. Even went to the NARBC show this year and boy was it a blast! Wasn't able to buy one tho. I'd suggest a Ball Python if anyone is looking to get one, and they come in a wide variety of paint jobs. But their price can range from $25 to $45,000. VM me if you want more info! I can go on forever with reptiles ranging from monitors to snakes to geckos.

If that were the case, it'd be kinda cool to have one. Chances are they're illegal exotic pets in like a lot of the world.
