Anyone else on here have snakes? I have a ball python ( 4 and a half to 5 feet long ) for a couple of years, now. He is in our dining room area, and likes to stick his head out and watch our goings-on. The kids take him out every once in awhile and let him roam, but the poor guy seems lonely most of the time. He is slithering across my keyboard as I write this, though, and now around my arm and neck, and it seems he likes the recreation and,... just something different. We feed him every two weeks, 3 to 4 mice at a time, so he doesn't get hungry...I was just curious if anyone has experience with snakes? And does it matter if you handle them regularly or not....probably not, but he really does seem to be very people friendly. Unfortunately his heat lamp was reallocated to the chicken coop.
