    They're wonderfully 'tolerant'.

    Oddly it's our female friends and female family members (plus youngsters) who are intrigued whereas the males are either disinterested or TERRIFIED of them !!

    I saw a recent online survey which suggests that of all 55% of snakes owners / breeders are FEMALE !!

    It has to be the way they're portrayed in life / in the media?

    Huge dark coloured , kinda ugly snakes to be seen at Zoos ( these are usually unwanted snakes donated ) .

    In the media they're always , threatening Cobras or Rattlesnakes or monsters in horrid films etc

    All negatives ... whilst in reality most are gentle and friendly , big or small . The ones kept privately like mine are bred for their colours and temperament ..

    I had a Labrador, i had her from 3 months old so she was my baby, 2yrs ago she collapsed in my living room, she was hardly breathing and her eyes were staring into nowhere, i tried to revive her but couldn't, she was dying in front of me. Her name was Nuggy and she was 14, that's how i chose my username, I've never got over losing her but we had just over 14yrs together and i gave her the best of everything including daily vitamins. ☺

    Same here :-( they quickly become one of the family so it's heartbreaking when they leave us.

    Thanks, his ex-wife had been looking after her most of the time recently, but she was on holiday so my brother was taking care.

    Ah bless, at least she was with someone she knew when she pssed The sense of hearing is the last thing that leaves humans and animals, Nuggy heard my voice when i was losing her as i saw her tail do a very slow wag, so i knew that she knew i was with her until the end.
