Aha. I knew someone would ask and I'd have to be like ??? But, I'm 99% sure yes. Deffo yes to the carpet python part. He liked the ~feel~ of my denim jacket.

Coastal carpet python?

They don't and a lot of snake owners won't like hearing this but they just tolerate you. That is it. They don't feel happiness or enjoy your company. At most when your scent is recognized they understand you are not a threat.

I'm a snake owner myself and in its own way, it knowing I'm not a threat is a nice feeling in its own weird way.

Do snakes actually like rubs?

I think it’s just a preference. Not sure about others, but mine certainly does!

P.S. I’m sure will someone else will be along shortly to tell you about how they just tolerate us ;)

Interesting!

I walked away for 2 seconds.

Every time I see one of these beasts I think to myself ‘It’d nail me every day and I’d still love it’.

Lovely animal!

After a fairly laborious couple days, here's a WIP shot of our vivarium build which will shortly house our Amazon Tree Boa.

Neat!

That is very nice! Live plants? Some philodendron brasil would look great, or a variegated vinca vine. God I love plants haha

Oh yeah I saw that one. Cute little guy.

Lets see a pic if the ATB. I use to breed them. Miss rheir sharp kisses.

Shit man! That’s rad

I held one once while it shed, it just crawled through my hands as I lightly gripped it and it just peeled off like in this video, it was akin to peeling the plastic off a new laptop or piece of acrylic, very satisfying.

That's awesome! I've owned snakes for several years and never witnessed this first hand. Lucky shot!

It was just right out front of my apartment! People that don’t know snakes don’t understand how harmless balls are. The other day someone asked me what kind he was and the guy next to him goes “oh shit, I didn’t realize there were different kinds”

white people at it again smh

He's so pretty and adorable.

Were they saying that when he was in your own yard, or did you take him to a park or something? I don't see a problem with letting him explore your own yard since he doesn't have vemon and isn't going to hurt anyone.
