I has planned on the Green Living Show to be my new thing today, but when I got there I quickly saw a better opportunity. How could I pass up holding a snake for the first time?
The reptile in question was a very pretty, very friendly corn snake. I’ve never seen a corn snake before since they aren’t native to this region and she took to me almost immediately.
The video’s cuts in and out you don’t see that she made her way up my arm, inside my shirt around my neck and back down again. The strangest part of it all is how cool the snake felt around my neck. Now I can sorta, kinda, maybe see why people keep them as pets.
Thanks to this little introduction I’m adding “Hold a Boa Constrictor” to my list if I get a chance.
