While raising a snake can be very rewardin, you must understand what responsibilities go into caring for a snake. You have to make sure that a pet snake is right for you and your family and that you have the facilities and time needed to be able to look after the snake. Snakes require a lot of attention, a regular diet and a regularly heated environment to be able to survive.
One of the most important things to do before buying a snake is to research the vast range of pet snakes available. If you have a specific breed of snake in mind, you’ll save yourself a world of hassle if you read up about the breed first. It could be quite a shock to discover the process of snake skin shedding if you aren’t prepared for the sight of it. Researching before you buy a snake will also let you know what kind and size of snake cage you will need to purchase, as well as any other necessary equipment. Snake care varies depending upon the breed of snake, so the way one cares for, say, ball pythons may be very different than caring for coral snakes.
Make sure that you set up the cage for the snake so that it resembles its natural habitat. Many snakes prefer the hot weather but there are some snakes that prefer the cold to the hot. You also have to take into consideration the aggressiveness of your snake so that you can fit the cage around it, by doing this it will be easier to maintain the cage and also to feed the snake.
Snakes are very primal in their nature, and there is no such thing as a fully domesticated snake. That’s why it’s important that you only feed your snake the food that it would naturally hunt in the wild. When faced with the option of live or pre-killed prey, it is a matter that you will have to decide upon yourself. Some snakes simply will not touch pre-killed prey, while others can learn to adapt to it. Feeding a snake live prey is definitely something you should prepare yourself for in the event that your snake refuses pre-killed prey. If you are able to use pre-killed prey, it is very important that you preserve the food either—usually in the refrigerator—sealed away from your family’s food.
You must also remember to keep your snake very well hydrated. You can achieve this by leaving a small bowl of water in the cage so that the snake can drink when it wants to. Also you have to keep a routine check on your snake to make sure that it does not catch any illnesses or that it is injured in any way.
If you’ve decided that you’re definitely prepared for snake-care responsibilities, you can find pet snakes for sale in your local pet shop, on the Internet, or in the classified ads section of your local newspaper.
