Snakes are horrible creatures? Not even close. Most people that have a dislike for snakes simply do not understand them. If you took the time to learn a little bit about them you would come to realize they are truly amazing animals. Contrary to popular belief, they are NOT slimy. Depending on the type of snake they range from feeling like the skin of a football (a little rubbery feeling, like my corn snake) to the softest suede (like a Boa or Ball Python) I wasn’t really all that interested in snakes and my experience with them non-existent until later in life around age 30. I ended up takibg a job bartending at a place that had a reptile jungle theme with lots of snakes and lizards and such. Held my very first snake and never looked back. Give em a chance folks! They’re really cool animals!
