Naming your snakes...
Just had a conversation with someone about naming snakes...He felt it was inappropriate to name your snake because they can't hear you and don't show affection to you. I dissagree. I think naming a snake is appropriate; practically it helps you discern between them if you have more than one (especially of the same sex and species).
I also think that just because my snake doesn't show affection towards me, it doesn't mean that I don't show affection towards him (it?). This is my pet. I know he will never cuddle with me or purr or even realise who I am and that's okay. It is enough for him to not bite me. It shows tolerance at least. What more can I expect? Nothing.
I choose to name my snake. What are your opinions on this?
