Most snakes available in pet shops and such are corn snakes - it'd still hurt if one bit you, but they're pretty harmless :)


That one round the back of my friend's colleague's toilet turned out to be a corn snake.
All right, so I MADE a mistake! ONE MISTAKE!

The sous chef at work just got a corn snake named Tyrone. Apparently it licks his face. Blatantly an awesome pet.

So.. its tongue touches his face when he holds it up to his cheek then? :P

I like snakes. I couldn't keep one though. Reptiles have a horrible smell.

Snakes can fuck the fuck off. If I have kids they can have the following pets;

-Cats
-Dogs
-Rabbits
-Hamsters

Rats/Mice/Any reptiles/Spiders and they can fuck off and live somewhere else first.

Doubt I could ever get used to it. Rats smell just as vile too.


Disagree. Rats don't smell, of course their cage does if you don't clean it out every once in a while, but that goes for any animal.

Yeah, from having looked after friends' rats, guinea pigs and hamsters I learnt they only became stinky if you don't clean them out enough. I still don't think i'd ever be fussed about getting one as a pet, though.

I've heard that ferrets are the smelliest small mammals to keep as pets.

Them and human babies. Hohohoho.

ferrets fucking stink! When they are stressed they do a sort of skunk thing and stink even more.

Correct. They smell worse the younger they are, but female rates don't tend to smell at all.

Err, wjat? I'm sorry, but Rich's female rats definitely had a bit of a smell about them no matter how often he'd clean the cage and them :lol: I do miss the little buggers though.

I'm afraid female rats do smell - not as bad as the boys, but they do. Although mine did take great delight in pissing on each other from the top decks of the cage.
