Yea.. I would agree and say get him to learn about how to care for it. Just to let you know though, I hear that goldfish are not a great food to feed garters, as they supposedly don't have a whole lot of nutrients. I feed mine guppies and tadpoles, and I let her crawl around the garden amd she eats slugs, spiders, and worms on her own. They are great eaters! If that kid wont take care of it the proper way, just let it go and tell him it escaped... then mabye his mom won't be so eager to let him have reptiles.

Chuck.. How do you keep him from biting you? Must pick him up really gently or something... Does he rattle at you? (or she...)

Oliverian, I keep her from biting my by not giving her the opportunity. In that picture, what I am doing it called tailing. You hold the snake by its tail and use some type of tool to keep the head at bay. You could not ďpick upĒ this snake with your hands, she is to nervous and unpredictable. The term for picking them up without tools is called freehanding and we do not recommend that for anyone. We do not recommend tailing for new keepers, only those who have worked with venomous snakes for quite sometime. Yes, she still rattles. In fact she starts as soon as she sees you and usually doesnít stop till be leave the building.

reptiledude21, no that is not a cobra. That is a lizard cage and what you see it a piece of wood. This picture was taken at the Scenic City Reptiles building in GA. GA law required special permits and very expensive insurance to keep exotic venomous, so we only keep indigenous there. If you like cobras, below are a couple of pics I took while in VA where the law allows exotics without the special insurance.

this BOY doesnt no 1 thing about caring for a snake....or anything else by the sounds of it...!
why dont u ask to LEND it or look at it...release it when hes not there, or ACCIDENTILY drop it in some long grass and keep him from seeing where it went!...THEN beat the **** outta him. and say u cant be bothered to stop. THEN tell his mother what the problem is and tell her to never allow another pet EVER, until he grows up and takes responsability!

Again, itís not a good idea to release snakes back into the wild after they have been transported from their range or held in captivity with other reptiles.

The danger isnít to the released snake. It can carry pathogens into the native species, thus killing many wild snakes. It is theoretically possible to expatriate a species from an area.
