Poor snakes. Sad One minute they are nice and comfy and the next out in the wild.

Those snakes really aren't all that expensive like they're stressing - if they were I doubt they'd be set loose. But anyway, what a shame. Facepalm

A breedable female albino burm has to be worth a few hundred bucks or more. To most people that is a lot of money for something they would swerve to run over. People not in our hobby have no clue the money that is spent on our collections.

That is very true, most of my friends think I'm crazy for the amount of money I put into it

QFT

The biggest question I get is: is there a market for snakes. (well, biggest after is that ball python venomous and will it bite me)

People don't understand that unlike dogs and cats reptiles become more expensive and more desirable as they age.

Dog and cat owners need to not throw stones in their glass houses.

Go Vinny! Glad somebody actually took it to reptile people instead of knifing it, like that idiot in the other story did.

Some people are absolutely shameless scum. Ugh. Poor snakes, I hope they wind up in the hands of more capable (and less idiotic) owners. :c

I'm glad they were found. It amazes me that someone could let loose animals like this. I want to smack some sense into these people. Hopefully now these snakes will be rehomed to someone that cares.

the biggest question i tend to get is " is that a real snake?" right before running away.. lol lol! once at a safe distance they are interested and follow up with "what does it eat and does it bite?"

i laugh everytime.. my reply.. never met a snake that didnt bite..

I always tell them "it has a mouth so of course it can bite..." Alot of my family has come around to the idea... just have a few that are "scared to death and never coming over"... I just laugh and tell them they would never be invited anyway...

I usually say "anything with teeth can bite, but this snake is nice so I doubt you'll have any problems."

funniest response was "HOW DOES IT FEEL HANDLING ALL THOSE DEVILS?!"

I'm lucky in that a lot of my friends/acquaintances are pretty accepting of it. Most of them are more fascinated than frightened or grossed out. I rarely hang out with people, but when I do, I'll let them handle the snakes if they like, with close supervision. I love it the most when it's the first time they've actually touched a snake and they're absolutely fascinated that it feels nothing like they thought it would Very Happy

My daughter ran around with my 10 year old normal ball female on her shoulder and said to me "Dada, taking her for a walk is harder than taking the Pitbull for a walk.."

I almost p... myself laughing...

My mom had finally touched, and then eventually held one of my ball pythons... her comment, "its not slimy, I thought it would be slimy"... maybe I'm weird but I never thought snakes would be slimy... I did crack up though, and after that she went around telling everyone how she held one of my snakes and it wasn't slimy... lol
