 Any Snakes owners get a negative response from the public because you..........

Iím a 44 year old mother of 4. Kind of your typical mom really. People always kind of blink and do a double take when they find out our family lives quite happily with 16 snakes (13 ball pythons, 2 boaís and a milksnake). Itís like they expect people who keep snakes to be wierdoís or something LOL. We recently did a snake show/educational visit to our sonís school with 5 of our snakes and it was great fun!

Of course i have got negative responses,thatís just the way the general public is.Itís funny the same people that have spent a ton of money on a pure bred dog look at me like i have three heads when they ask how much certain snakes cost.It comes with the territory.
