I've always felt a connection to reptiles, I want to have a snake that big someday.

Having a Burmese would be one of my dreams as well - but it would be most likely just a bad idea in my case. These things can grow huge (and i am a...Teeny Weeny. So, if something happens and I'm alone with the snake, I'm screwed 8D ). Plus, I could never own something that is capable of eating my cat or my partner's rabbit in case of a possible escape from the tank (damn, I can't even handle the mere thought of that).

Therefore...nope. Only playing with gentle stranger-pythons. 8D

This is making me miss my snake... There are few sensations more pleasant than having a snake gliding through your hands. I LOVE the feeling of the scales. Guess I'll just have to go to a pet store and ask to hold some of their babies. XP

Aww, what a lovely scene :) And the title is even sweeter! This is rather unusuall, seeing such a bond with a snake. They deserve respect so much. I only touched a snake once so far, it was nice but a bit scary :p

Also, I smiled at the English-German chat you had there. Lol, I only use my native language when seeing a conversation in it, or when an author of an artwork speaks it. English is universal (besides Chinese maybe? Not sure which one is spoken by the majority of people).

Yeah, especially the part where i would talk about fucked up grammar and fuck it up on my own in the same breath. Ehem, well played indeed, Culpeo. :P Oh well.

You know, i didn't mean to sound too harsh or an anything. If people want to learn a new language: I'm totally behind that, really. Learning languages is cool and you'll always be better off if you're bilingual. Over the years, though, i met some individuals who would overuse the Google Translator only ("look, i know some words of German, ohoho, ik sprekken doitz!" Lol.) and i kind of developed some aversion to it in the process. Online Translators are wonderful if you want to get the sense of what was written there but that should be it. Never use it for actual conversations.

Yeah, I get what you mean (without Google translator, heh). People may be proud of their native language, but forcing someone to use a translator in order to understand them is somewhat impolite. The exception beeing when someone really can't put a sentence in a language other than his native. But I'd rather see an imperfect comment with "sorry, not speak english good", at least the commenter is trying... :p

And you're not sounding harshly, it's all cool.

Also, a lot of the snakes I've seen in documentaries and the two I've seen in real life have a bit of a shininess to their skin, so it could also be people think it's moisture.

Well not really, everthing does happen for a reason and fear since birth of something is handed down from your ancestors, people thought before that spiders and rats helped to spread disease and plague, which could be the reason why something so cute as a rat is often seen as disgusting, snakes have always been the cause of death to mankind xD but that's mostly our fault since we're never seen as prey to them, and the respect from such an ancient rival can easily turn into enthusiasm c:

Funny you should mention rats and spiders. Rats and mice I know are a real nuisance, but I still find them cute. Spiders on the other hand are a phobia of mine. I like to see them spin webs, which look great in the morning dew, but if one comes close to me it's getting smashed. I nearly freaked out when I found one in my car while driving.

I never knew spiders were believe to spread diseases, though. Knew about the rats, though. It was the fleas that spread plague, right?

No, it's perfectly fine in my opinion. Because snakes can be dangerous (or say, some of them). The capability to kill you with venom or muscle power justifies any fear.

People shouldn't see snakes as the most horrible things ever that came right out of the devil's cave. Yet, i find the other extreme - downplaying their danger just as dubious (which is something that you can oddly see very often when people try to argue about their favourite animal. "Nooo, wolves are so misunderstood and they would never harm any human being". Uh, yes, they can). Instead, one should see snakes as what they are. Animals with their own right to exist. You don't have to love and hug them (try this with a king cobra and it definitely is the last thing that you'd do, for being dead afterwards 8D ) but simply treat them with a certain kind of respect - and everything will be alright. :)

Now that sounds like the way to look at them. Well, I do have a love for wolves, but I'm not stupid enough to go up to it. I guess that would be called a healthy respect.
I'm sure every animal is dangerous in certain situations. My brother was bitten by a goose one time, I've been bitten a few times by a Chihuahua (those things are more fierce than people give credit for), and I've encountered a nesting bird that was more than willing to get dangerous on us.
Yeah, nature is beautiful, but don't screw around with it. Enjoy it without taking too many unneeded risks.

Wrong. Wrong. So totally w r o n g, i can't even-

Snakes are neither slippery nor cold; the exact opposite is the case (it makes you wonder what exactly made this prejudice and why it still is so persistent). Their skin actually feels dry and anti-skidding. Being ectothermic creatures, the temperature of a snake completely depends on the outer temperature (and Mr Python here was pretty cozy, for the weather degree was about 31°)

Foxes, snakes, you can prefer and love whatever you want - but get your facts straight at least. :P

Google Translator German doesn't classify as German. :) People should communicate in languages they're actually (more or less) mastering  instead of throwing something through an online translator. The only result is a fucked up grammar (in most cases) which is just unpleasing to read if not even downright annoying.
