Would love to own a snake. I use to volunteer at an animal rescue at a National Park and I took care of all sorts of exotic animals. Great Horned Owls, Barn Owls, Screech Owls, Barred Owls, Red Tailed Hawks, and a Black Vulture. I even got to work with a few box turtles, Black Rat Snake, Hognose Snake, and a Milk Snake.
It was an awesome time in my life. I learned so much and overcame my fear of snakes. I even use to mess around with my fiance, who is deathly afraid of snakes and still is.
