Some people might refer to men as snakes but I'm talking about the real deal. I'm not a snake lover by any means but I can't help but feel sorry for them. I'm talking about the huge pythons they've been finding here in the sunshine state the last few months. Some of them are monstrous! One weighed 400 lbs...and I know they're considered predators because they can kill and eat us. But they're really beautiful creatures who should be left alone to thrive where they don't present a danger.

I feel sorry for them because they shouldn't be in the situation they are in. Something should have been done a long time ago preventing just anyone from selling or buying a snake like that. Once they get too big for their owners they're released in the wild and then the trouble begins. Cold-blooded, they don't develop feelings of love and loyalty like our furry friends do. So why would you want something that can coil around your body, squeeze you to death and then eat you? Double yuck!

You probably think I'm crazy for writing this. Is there a full moon? LOL The only explanation I have is that I'm an animal lover and no matter what it is, I hate the thought of it being abused. Plus, they just found an 18 foot python here, according to the news tonight.

I am by no means a snake lover but I agree, they shouldn't be allowed to buy and sell them. They don't belong in someones house.

Ugh...spiders and snakes...but you're right. I've heard about the overabundance of them because of people letting them loose. Put all the breeders/sellers of them out in a field with a few of the big ones...see if they don't learn the lesson.
