Slick, the Pet of the Day
Name: Slick
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Ball Python
Home: Columbus, Georgia, USA
   This is my boy Slick. He is a ball python. I bought him when he was a hatchling, he is now eleven months old. He is such a cool snake. He is more like a dog then a snake. He goes everywhere with me. People are always so scared of him, if they only knew him. He sits in my lap at night and watches TV with me. I love him to death.

    Slick has a wonderful attitude about everything. He is my second snake. The first snake I owned was a red-tail boa and she bit my husband. Slick turned my husband around about snakes and now he has two of his own snakes. Slick is very cuddly. Kids love him. There is not a mean bone in his body. It was really neat how I got him. I ride my bike down to this pet store almost every day and the clerk and I are really good friends. She had just gotten a shipment of hatchling ball pythons in and I noticed this one looking at me. I picked him up and tried my darndest to get him to bite me so that I wouldn't want to take him home with me, well try as I might he would not bite me. I rode my bike home and told my husband that I found what I wanted for my birthday. He came with me to the pet store and I showed him want I wanted. He wasn't too happy about it but gave in. Slick is the best birthday gift I have ever gotten. Slick was in really bad health when I bought him. He was riddled with mites and under-weight. I have taken very good care of him and he is my number one buddy. I only wish more people would like snakes. They get a bad rap but are really creatures with a big heart.
