is a very pretty gopher snake. I've always been fond of Gopher
snakes and their relatives, but have never had one of my own. When I spotted
Sunny at a pet store I was not in the market for another snake, but I took
her out anyways "just to look", since her rich yellows and oranges were so
pretty. She immediately crawled into my purse and would not be budged. How
could I turn her down?
One thing I've always loved about Gopher snakes and their relatives is their
attitudes! They tend to be very vocal, hissing their opinions about
everything! In the store, she certainly has a lot to say to me. Since I got
her home, however, I haven't heard a peep. Indeed, she is the mellowest,
sweetest gopher snake I've ever come across! I love having her out to handle,
because she's so calm and slow most of the time that I can be typing or
playing games while I have her out. Between her lovely colors and her lovely
temperament, she is truly a joy to have around!
