The Snake Chronicles, aka Skip this post if you are snake-aphobic

Daddy took Bubs to the reptile show this weekend and came back with this (friendly, but still frightening) King snake.
Have I mentioned that Daddy is quite the tease?...And that I am one of the most gullible people on the planet? (No, really. Try to sell me beachfront property in Kansas. Actually that won't work. I'm too cheap. Anyway...)
So, on the way home, Daddy called and said that Bubby had just absolutely-positively fallen in love with this huge huge, in fact, that it would have to live in one of our 2 bathtubs. I kept saying I didn't believe him, but I did. At least that's a step in the right direction for me...saying I don't believe.
Needless to say, this little-ish, well, medium-ish snake was a big relief. Although I wouldn't go as far as Daddy as to say it is part of the family.


  1. What a pretty snake! My cat would love to play with it.

  2. Snakes are really great pets. My oldest son had a number of reptilian pets, including several snakes and lizards. Reptiles are interesting, clean, quiet and easy to care for. My son has given most of his pets away now that he is in college and he is currently down to just one snake. My son is now a biology major in college pursuing a love of animals and wild things that began with the first little ribbon snakes we bought him after surgery he had when he was seven-years-old.

  3. I don't know how I'd do with a snake in the house!
