Hades, the Pet of the Day
Name: Hades
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Bull Snake
Home: Fairbanks, Alaska, USA
   I got Hades about a year ago for my boyfriend and she is the sweetest snake that you can have. We got her when she was not even a foot long, and now she is 3.5-4 feet. She loves to be held all the time. It is hard to have a snake up here in Alaska, but she is beautiful in every way. Bull snakes look like rattle snake and even act like them in many ways. She is still a baby and is supposed to be up to six feet long when full grown. Now that is big!

    We have had a rough time with her in the winter time here in Alaska. We have actually had to bring her back to life about three times and that scared me so bad, but she came back and we love and care for her even more. Hades usually just lies on her rock, but when she gets bored, she tries to push the screen on her tank so she can run loose. When we first got her, she escaped from her cage and we could not find her for about three days but we found her by our microwave she was trying to find heat. Silly snake, doesn't she know there's a reason she's got a nice warm tank to keep her safe? We love her, even if she is naughty sometimes.
