Well this to prevent this from ever happen again. i suggest you keep it in your apartment and make sure you dont take it out of the apartment where peopel can see your exotic aniamal. Its also best not to tell anyone in your area. Words do spread around, and they end up in the wrong places. So i suggest you leave it in you apartment and just brag about your snake on the fourms
Just be careful. Some people dont like dogs and will try and get rid of those to!
