Precious, the Pet of the Day
Name: Precious
Age: Twelve years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Ball Python Snake
Home: Louisiana, USA
   This is "Precious," a Ball Python. I got Precious when he was just a tiny baby and he's been a joy to have ever since. He is the only snake that lives in my living-room and I often take him out while I'm watching TV, he usually curls up on my lap or snuggles up under my hair. Once, I fell asleep with him out and when I woke up the next morning, he was curled up under the blanket next to me.

    I take him along on educational talks for children to teach them about snakes. He seems to enjoy all of the attention and has never hissed once, even after hours of being handled by children from ages five and up!

    Precious loves to ride in the truck and go to the park, he often attracts a crowd of people and helps them to see that snakes can be wonderful pets. It always makes me smile when I see another person fall in love with his gentle nature.
