Sheikh Yerbouti, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sheikh Yerbouti
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Carolina corn snake
Home: Oakland, California, USA
   Here's my darling pet snake, Sheikh Yerbouti. She's a Carolina corn snake (elaphe guttata guttata). She resides in Oakland, California with her two adoring human parents. Sheikh is the sweetest, most gentle pet a human could hope for. She enjoys all kinds of handling and cuddling and loves to climb, head first, down furniture to explore the carpet. In the morning, she watches me ride on my exercise bike, although she can't understand why I'd want to pedal and pedal and get nowhere. In this picture, she's searching for treats inside the Jack O' Lantern. Happy Halloween!
