I love (nonpoisonous) reptiles! I used to have a bearded dragon named Sheldon but had to sell him cause it cost me 100 bucks a month just to feed him! @.@ Feeding both my horses is cheaper than that!! I do love reptiles, though. I'd love to own a corn snake in the future, they're a good medium size.

The young woman who works next door to me has what I call a reptile museum in her house. She has lighted shelves with cages for them. Snakes, tarantulas, who knows what else. Needless to say I have never visited her home!
Personally I adore lizards and have all sorts of lizard stuff, even found a pretty lizard rhinestone brooch.

I find reptiles to be interesting too - I've owned snakes and lizards before......the biggest was a 5 foot red tail boa and I had an iguana that was probably 6 foot or more from nose to tail (he was meaner than snot and wanted to eat your fingers). Got rid of all reptiles once I got preggo with #1. I used to breed mice to feed the snakes too - mice stink! LOL! I even froze the little pinky mice and thawed them in cups of water in the microwave to feed the baby corn snakes......TMI? LOL!!!!!!!!

Lol. DH would wet his britches if there was a snake in the house! CC glad you horse is ok. Our pit got bit on the nose by some kind of snake last week. Swelled and drained for awhile. But, he's good now.

I will not be visiting anyone home that has a snake.
I dont trust them and they totally creep me out.
If I see one near me it must die so I dont even visit the reptile houses in zoos. Shalom

Dicy has escaped her cage several times. She commonly ends up in bed with me... Lol! Good thing shes litter box trained! My golden eyelash (Shimmer) has yet to escape her cage anddddd im rather happy about that with how toxic she is hahaha. Then fang has only escaped twice and i found her in my closet curled up on my dress rack. Hahahaha
