What Sucks… Snakes!


Snakes will eat your dog. In front of you. In front of your kids.

Here’s what we know about snakes.

They slither around on their bellies.
They can swim and climb trees.
They can disengage their jaws to eat things bigger than their mouths.
They have long tongues they use to smell.
Horses are scared shitless of them.
Many of them are poisonous and their bites, fatal to humans.
And now, they stalk and kill dogs.

Nice job making these things, God seriously way to fucking go. The world has enough flowers that cure diseases? Couldn’t make a rainbow that came after a snowstorm? No, let’s make a huge muscular thing with no arms or legs than can rattle, skim across a pond and eats its food whole. Way to friggin go.

The kind of people that would have a pet snake (and feed it live food) are the same kind of sadists that would enjoy watching dog fighting.

Think US football player Michael Vick.

Why anyone would own a snake is beyond my comprehension. They don't do anything except lay under a heat lamp inside a plexiglass box... unless they escape and kill something.

You can think what you want. I have owned a Red Tail Boa for four years. She is a great pet and far easier to take care of than a dog or a cat even. I work 60 hour weeks. I have no interest at all in dog fighting, nor do I feed my snake live animals. There is no need for it in captivity, and I have no desire to watch an animal suffer needlessly. I handle Sage a couple times a week to keep her tame. I built a sturdy, very nice enclosure for her. It's fun to watch her climb around at night, she can be very active, and there are times I don't see her for a week. So what?

Well, you're saying all of us that keep snakes are sadists, and that we suck? Don't think so. I'm thirteen and i have had some problems and can be slight stressful. My small baby ball python really helps me relax. Snakes bite when they are hungry or intimidated. Hungry in 90 per cent of the time. My snake is calm and curious. Dogs are expensive, difficult, smell, loud and just gives you SO much restriction. All snakes isn't 20 foot killer pythons. You can just blame the family for letting the snake run free and not keeping it entertained.
