||One year old|
||Mojave Royal Python|
is Lilith, my Mojave Royal Python. Lilith is my serpent-sister and my
soul-mate and I love her more than words can adequately say.
A year ago, I went to the Reptile Expo with the intention of looking for a
Mojave Royal Python and at the very first table I came to when I walked
through the door, there she was! She was so beautiful and active. I even held
her and I loved her and felt she was the one meant for me. I felt an instant
attraction and a bond with her and wanted to buy her right then, but I
thought I should still look around before buying the first animal I saw
(though I was very tempted to buy her right away).
So I spent about twenty to thirty minutes looking around at tables that had
other royal pythons. I saw lots of other mojaves and some even a little
bigger and cheaper too, but none had captured my heart like that first little
girl mojave I saw when I first entered the expo. I kept on thinking of her
while I was looking at the others and she was the one I couldn't stop
thinking about. She was the one who had instantly grabbed my attention and
kept it, even when I was looking at others, so I hurried back to her table
and bought her. She was the one meant for me. And I think Lilith knew it too.
I feel Lilith is a special gift from my spirit guides and they lead me to her
that day. Once I had a corn snake named Tequila who I felt a very special
bond with, just like I do with Lilith now. Tequila died in 2008 and my heart
has been grieving for her ever since. But I still feel her around me, and the
date of that Reptile Expo where I found my Lilith was the anniversary of
Tequila's death. I feel Tequila lead me to Lilith that day because she knew
how much I needed her, how else to explain that the very first animal I saw
was the one meant for me, the one I fell in love with? Lilith is definitely a
gift to my heart and I feel such a strong bond with her. I know she feels it
too. When I take her out of her tank, she presses her mouth against mine as
if asking for a kiss. We give each other kisses all the time. She is a very
sweet snake, and gentle, too.
