Re: Everyone asks me why?!

Welcome Lance. One reason why people keep snakes is their relentless control of the rodent populations. I am speaking mainly about the wild mouse and rat who decimate farming crops, cause disease, and wallow in filthy conditions. The literature has made the snake out to be the bad guy when in actuality they should be held in high esteem and conserved for all the good they do. Even kingsnakes and some of the large colubrids control wild venomous snakes that may harm children and adults.
