Slinky, the Pet of the Day
Name: Slinky
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Kind: Garter Snake
Home: South Carolina, USA
   This is Slinky, I am not sure of his age. He's a baby though. Slinky is an Albino checkered garter snake.

    Slinky is special because he is such a beautiful snake. I had originally started looking at corn snakes, but one day they showed me him and his other two cage mates, and it was basically love at first sight. Well, after doing lots of research and reading about his species as much as I could, I felt like I was confident enough to handle getting a snake like him.

    Slinky is actually a friendly snake, though. I've been holding him so he could get used to being handled and slowly he is coming out of his shell. He will actually sit in the palm of my hand now instead of trying to escape. This is my first pet snake, and I couldn't be happier that I got him. He's great.
