||Five months old|
||Royal (Ball) Python|
||Austin, Texas, USA|
is our ball python, Nexus (or as we lovingly refer to him as Mr.
'Nakie). We've only had him for about two months now, but he's very
gentle and calm. He'll usually just wrap himself around my hand and
stay put or if he gets bored slither up and crawl around on my
shoulder. I'm not worried yet since he's still only about 18"
long so he can't do much harm.
I was very apprehensive about getting a snake, as they are by far not
my favorite animal and I've always been slightly afraid of them, even
though they interest me. But after some logical thoughts from my
fiance about how calm the ball pythons are, we decided to try one
out, and I'm quite glad we did. He may not be our most exciting pet
to watch, but he's definitely one of our more interesting ones in

could be Pet of the Day.
