||Eleven months old|
||Columbus, Georgia, USA|
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.
