Snakes are too slithery for my liking. Plus, I live in the Southwest U.S. so the majority of my encounters with snakes have been with rattlesnakes.

    I used to catch harmless garter snakes in the suburbs of Toronto :33

    I also liked to catch anoles (I think they were anoles) in Italy when I went on vacation :3

    I guess we are the same. I can't stand snakes at all. I find them so creepy.

    I've seen snakes around here, but never caught any. The snake I used to have (she died a few weeks ago) was a nasty little thing, though, so I'm more jumpy around them than I used to be.

      I've seen a few tiny snakes that appear in my lawn but I have yet to see a big one here. I'm pretty much frightened of any animal that is poisonous.

      There's a good chance the ones you see are harmless, though. Of course, what it could be depends on where you live.

      Over here we have cottonmouths, timber rattlesnakes (only in one small area of the state, and not where I live), and copperheads, if I remember correctly. People see a lot of copperheads really near to where my best friend lives.

      I don't know if I'd ever have a snake as a pet (since I'm more of a cat person, plus I don't know if I could handle feeding a snake), but I always found them kind of cool.

      I remember visiting a pet store or something, some inside place with animals, when I was in kindergarten. All I remember for certain was that I was the only kid there who allowed the boa constrictor to be placed on their shoulders (with adult supervision of course) and who would even touch a snake. :D I thought it was rather awesome. All the other kids were afraid to do so. I didn't get what the big deal was back then.

      I don't like the idea of feeding dead animals :'[

      I didn't like the idea of it, either, Jz. Watching my snake swallow newborn mice knocked that out of me. ;D

      Dead stuff doesn't bother me in general. I don't know if that's a good thing.

      A snake eating a newborn mouse? Sounds... interesting.

      Speaking of dead, I nailed the first 48 volumes of the Walking Dead comic. Woot. <3

        I held a massive snake a few months ago and could feel some of the mice it had just eaten being digested in that moment. It was a really surreal feeling... awesome, but surreal!

        Aww haha c:

        Ever since adopting my corn snake, I had been waiting for her to be large (and tame) enough for me to be able to hold her on my shoulders. Just seemed like it would be awesome. Perhaps I'll be able to do the same with the Uromastyx I might be adopting, since I never had a chance to with the snake.

        I think we need a DCC funeral, hmm? :c
        I normally would be around more, but I'm trying to draw a Cubone. I got pretty far into the drawing before realizing that the perspective on its eye is wrong. D;

        I'm no good at starting discussions, someone else will have to. :c

        Baking tons of bread. My mom has ten loaves to bake through the next few days.

        By the end of it all I'll be dreaming bread and counting it in my sleep. x__x

        Watching a snake eat is boring as hell. I saw a snake eat a dead rat at a zoo once. It was about 45 minutes of foreplay before the damn thing actually swallowed it.

        *yawn*

        I prefer watching my dog eat his food. It's more cute.
