Snakes Make The Best Pets – Find Out Why

Low maintenance

Let them hang out alone, they will do their own thing. Some snake species are docile, which makes them shy and nervous. Depending on what you prefer, you can opt for different breeds which determine their maintenance levels. As well as this, they are low for cleaning maintenance too. They shed their skin in one big go, rather than countless hairs all over your home as you may find with fur animals.

Don’t require a lot of attention

Unlike dogs, cats and other typically attention requiring animals, they don’t need regular grooming, washing, walking.

Don’t need to be fed too often

Small snakes will need to eat around twice a week, whereas big snakes only need a meal once a week/fortnight. This means you are free to go on holiday, without needing expensive pet sitters.

They are happy with frozen food

So no need to keep live animals which are at risk of escaping. Depending on what species depends on what you feed them: Thread snakes eat the pupae, or eggs of ants and centipedes. Most snakes diets consist of: insects, rodents, birds, eggs, fish, frogs, lizards and small mammals. All snakes swallow their food whole.

Inexpensive to keep

Obtaining the vivariums is easy and not expensive – all that is required is a heat pad which can be bought for as little as £5. Also, as their food is already dead, it’s very cheap to acquire.

Very cute to their owners

Despite the bad reputation snakes have been given, they are actually very loving. Once you have a snake fall asleep in your hands, you’ll understand.

Great conversation point

How many snake owners are there, really? Not many. So when you meet someone who owns them, there is instinctively going to be a lot of conversation. They give owners a certain edge, and may even give them a change typical perceptions of snakes and their owners.

So many different types

There are nearly 3,000 species of snakes in the world! Only 375 are venomous and only a small proportion are harmful to humans. That means, there are so many different personality types and almost certainly one to suit you.
