Altais, the Pet of the Day
Name: Altais
Age: Thirteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Ball Python
Home: Vancouver Island, BC, Canada
   Mostly Altais is so special because he is my first snake. Ever since I can remember I've loved reptiles, mainly snakes. I'm now 26 and finally own one. He, like all snakes, are amazing creatures in that they have no legs but can effortlessly glide across ground, through water, and can even climb things. What makes Altais particularly special to me is his curiosity. He loves to smell (with his tongue, another cool aspect) everything new to him. Even people. He's really good with the kids in the neighborhood when they come over to see him. When I put him in their hands (always supervised) he just lays there smelling their hands and arms. I love Altais because he knows me apart from everybody else. Altais is just special.
