Changing your mind at a later stage causes problems as many sanctuaries will be unable to take in your snake and turning it loose is not an option. Also, check laws in your city as some species (very large or venomous) are restricted in certain cities.First most, understand that no matter what, even if you buy a Snake for sale, or adopt, as a new pet owner it is your responsibility to care for the Snake it’s entire lifespan. Part of that responsibility is taking time to understand the basic needs of a Snake. At the top of that list should be getting know the diet of a Snake. Find out how often and what a Snake needs to eat. Next, what shelter do you need to provide? Get to know what habitat a Snake is accustom to, what temperature will the Snake need to maintain, and what range of temperatures are acceptable for a Snake to survive.I am not suggesting that everyone should own a snake. Quite the opposite, I feel that most people should actually do a little more research before buying one. I frequent the local classified ads () on a semi-regular basis, and am appalled by the vast number of Ball Pythons, Corn Snakes and Boa Constrictors available on any given day. The majority of the animals for sale, have been short-term pets that have lost the allure that they once held with their owners.
