It has been explained to me before that albino versions of snakes like that tend to be mellow in the extreme and totally helpless.  But yeah, bad parenting.  Anyone who has a cold-blooded pet and attributes warm-blooded behavior to it like that is - to use a word from Schild - retarded.

Bad parenting right up there with the idiots that like to talk about how much their pit bull loves their toddlers: You're one genetically hard-wired reflex trigger away from being a cautionary tale.

I like snakes but that's bad parenting, yes. The yawn reflex doesn't mean anything in particular--you see boas and pythons do it fairly often, often a week or so after they've eaten (most of them only eat once a month or at that size maybe even longer), so I suspect it has something to do with digestion. But even a very mellow python or boa can startle if it sees sudden movement coming towards its head (it's a reflex: that's how raptors attack them when they're younger) and they may strike defensively. At that size, the bite hurts a lot and can leave a nasty wound. Moreover, even if they have eaten, a reflex bite may trigger a reflex constriction too. A big snake should always be under control of its handler.

*Per the relevant Reddit thread, a friend of the guy who took the picture said that he father pro-actively called child protective services and they gave him the OK to let the snake loose in the house.  Presumably it's no more dangerous than a large dog.



*It's Reddit, so this could obviously be bullshit

Because child protective services are the people who you ask about the behavior of large snakes.....

Crikey!

Also, this must have been in Florida, right?

I found a kitten in the park yesterday - or rather Dan, my Great Dane did. She was way too small to be on her own and we were a long way from habitation so she was clearly lost. She wasn't afraid of me or Dan and she's litter trained so she's not a street kitten. Currently I'm looking after her 'temporarily', but I suspect I've been suckered into getting a cat if her real owners don't claim her. Unfortunately I am pretty sure she was deliberately abandoned, it's a fairly popular spot for it :(

Cute kitty.  Luna has moved onto trying to take over our golden's bed and is up to her usual shenanigans.



Golden is being a bit bitchy about her. Golden's current pastime is to play "Lucy with the football" with various toys.

Luna is adorable! but I can't blame the Golden for being bitchy; I would be too if someone was trying to steal my bed.

Dan and Puma are dazzlingly gorgeous together .  Same colour, even.  They could be brother and sister.  ;p

And Calapine, what a sweet face your kitty has!   Heart Heart Heart
