A funny story.....

i got picked up from this cabby today, and we got to talking about reptiles and snakes, etc...and i told him i owned a few, and even though he being from nigeria, and taught not to like them as a child, he seemed like he was very intrigued about the whole idea of them being in captivity.

So like any herper, i couldn't resist the chance of showin off the collection..hehe
So i offered him to come up and check em out.

he was a little skeptical about holding any, but i worked him in a bit and finnally got him to hold one and snap off a few pics so i could send them to him via email.

Heres Mike!
with one of my male reds.

the snake started hissing during this second pic, i told him to hold on and not drop the snake or else the pic wouldn't turn out nicely. lol

Oh my god that is funny! You invited up a total stranger? That sounds like something I would do. You converted someone into ....well not a herp lover but more like a herp tollerant person. Great job. He is certianly enjoying himself. Grant vg...... humanitarian and amature sociologist. Good job.

What an awesome story. Mike looked like he had a absolute blast seeing and holding your snakes. He doesn't look completely comfortable with them, yet not a terrified either. That's great!


I don't like reggae... oh no. I LOVE IT!

Dude!! I would have done the same exact thing with somebody I didn't even know... everytime someone comes to the door or comes over I run up to get a snake just to show it off, lol. I've freaked out a lot of people, though, but it's so much fun to see their reactions .

Btw, Really nice blood!!!! Is it a bangka?
Who are you callin' a freak?!

Xetox, you are exactly
as soon as the snake hissed, he looked up to god and waited for me to come take it out of his

i as well think he had a blast.
thanks for the comments, that snake is just a regular ol brongersmai. no specific locale.
