Friday Fun — Snakes!

Holding a boa for the first time…

Snakes are adorable. Well, at least some of them. About two months ago, I had a chance to hold a snake for the very first time, and it was a great experience. You can see the snake — it’s a rainbow boa named Kali — on the pictures. You can see me grinning like an idiot too. 🙂 I was fascinated to find out that Kali needs to eat only once in two weeks, and could survive for an entire year without any food.

Kali is two, maybe two and a half years old, about a meter long, and pretty much used to people. She belongs to a friend, and the friend’s six-year-old granddaughter simply adores Kali and loves holding her. Kali doesn’t complain, either; as I said, she’s used to people, and doesn’t mind being held.

…and very much loving it.

For the end, there’s some snake fun — if you have kids, they might love this one.

  1. I'm somebody not real afraid of snakes – but not overly fond, either.I can admire their beauty, their place in nature, their many fine qualities. Yet, as pets, would rather have something furry, not a critter I need to FEED something furry.


  2. I think snakes are beautiful but I don't think I could have one as a pet. I'm with Beverly, I'm a furry friend fan. That said, Kali looks very at home in your arms. The photos are great!


  3. There's also a misconception of the snakes not being able to feel affection, which is very much not true. They're quite capable of forming strong bonds with their owners.
