Anyone seen those fish that eat the dead skin from your feet? I've always wanted to try that.

I had a betta as a kid, and he always puffed himself up to intimidate various objects that I held in front of him. It was cute.

I'm not real big on fish, though. I prefer pets that can be handled outside of water. Especially snakes. <3 I still don't understand how snakes are scary to people. I mean, they're so cute. D:

Edit:
@Scarf
I've heard of that. Weren't people getting medical problems from it, though? Because the fish were carrying stuff from person to person and infecting people?

I've wanted to try that for a while now, I've seen many stalls set up all over Town but I've heard it can cause bacterial infections and such.

That sounds kinda weird tbh.

One more thing on the betta fish subject, it was so funny when I would go look at my sister's betta and he would freak out everytime someone looked at him it was really funny, no idea why a fish would do that, maybe he liked the attention idk. xD

eeeee snakes. <3 They're so cute. Especially pythons with their cat face. I've never had one though since I'm never sure whether I can feed it mice or not. Probably dead ones but yeah.

After this talk I definitely want to try to get a Betta for myself. Just so I can have something for a pet which is better than nothing.

Our neighbors have a pet snake. They've shown it to us when they invited us to their house for dinner a few months back. They even let it crawl around my hand for a few minutes, and it felt kind of cold and slippery. The snake was very friendly, but I was still a bit nervous to have it around me. xD"

I don't think I would ever get a snake as a pet. Snakes just simply scare me.

They have that same :3 that cats have. At least to me (and someone who made an image saying such so I'm not the only one!) they do and it's adorable.

Ugh I am terrified of snakes and I don't think that I would ever have the courage to touch one. Yes, I love them because they are fascinating creatures but I'll keep my distance :D

I could definitely have a snake. I think they're really cool and I like snake pokemon as well (Serperior). I think I might get one when I'm older.

I don't like Snakes, I know a few people who have them as pets but I just don't see the appeal to them really.. I'd rather have a cat or a dog. ;)

I've never been truly frightened of snakes but I do know that I live around wild snakes and I have come across them in the past too.

Snakes are cute to look at.... in pictures that is. If I see a snake irl, I will probably run away in an instant.

Two years ago, a wild snake's gotten inside of our backyard somehow. Me and my sister were the only ones that were in our house at that time, and our parents were at work. If they weren't, then they probably would have done something about it. We had the back door open, but the snake never got inside. Thank god. d: This snake is no longer in our yard, but it still may be hiding itself underground somewhere.

We had a similar experience but the snake had somehow gotten into our garage. My little brother happened to notice it when he was looking for something in the garage. It was quite scary, but luckily it wasn't a poisonous snake and my dad was able to catch him and relocate him somewhere else.

I allegedly almost stepped on a snake after going of the trail and "trespassing".

She spooked me at the time it happened, but thinking back, I'm pretty sure the park ranger only said that to mess with me.

I know that would be a pretty good scare tactic for me! I would never trespass again if I knew that I almost stepped on a snake

I don't think I'd have a snake for a pet.

I sorta want some kind of pet reptile eventually though, I don't know what kind.
