Snakes are a form of crack cocaine, that actually lives and moves. The high is delivered every time you look at one. It's a visual thing. Unfortunately, the mind is tricked by photos and simulates a pseudo-high when viewing pictures of snakes. That's why it's called "eye candy".
When handling snakes, the drug is delivered right into the blood stream. Crack-cocaine easily passes the blood-brain barrier. That is why you buy snakes that you handle at shows.
Lesson, do not handle snakes at shows or look at pictures. You must wean yourself off the drug. Going cold turkey, only makes you com back. See the many posts by those who have "left the hobby" so to speak only to come right back!
Haha, couldnt be more true
