30 March 2009 - Albino Western Diamondback Rattlesnake

30 March 2009 - Albino Western Diamondback Rattlesnake

It’s legal in Nevada to do lots of things. You can own machineguns, silencers, even a brothel. While I would love a machinegun or silencer, I’ll leave the brothels and their business to others.

Something else that’s legal in Nevada that I’ll leave to others is venomous reptile ownership. The albino western diamondbacks at Exotic Pets are fascinating animals that I think are also very beautiful, but I don’t see one ever sharing my place of residence. Call me crazy, but I don’t want to take a chance on being bitten. Even if the bite is very survivable (and thinking of survivability being less than 100% is bad enough), rattlesnake venom is a hemotoxin which is nasty stuff :shock:

I had stopped by Exotic Pets to tell them that yes, I will be picking Ziva the corn snake up tomorrow after work and to re-check some prices and whatnot. I got to pull Ziva out of her container and hold her for a while which brought her temperature up quite a ways and (here’s something for Kath to laugh at :P ) helped out the last bit with her digestive system. Yes, I got pooped on by my snake.

I still can’t wait to bring her home tomorrow :)
