Hi, everyone. New here. I am pretty interested in getting a snake. I'm in the very beginning stages of my research (I make it a rule to do at least a few months research before getting an animal... It's usually more like a year, though.), but I am just not sure if getting a snake is practical for my situation. First of all, I live in a guest house and it's pretty small. I know I have room for my Bearded Dragon's enclosure (he had to be "fostered" at my friend's house for awhile, he's coming back next month), he resides in a 75gal tank. But I don't think I would have room for two enclosures unless I could stack them. Is this possible? I know the heat lamps/UVB lamps have to go somewhere, but I have seen those... I don't know what their name is. Those stand things that a lot of reptile owners have where there are multiple tanks in one? I was thinking something like that could work. Secondly, I have other animals. I have two small dogs (under 8lbs), a Goffin's Cockatoo (250g parrot), and a rabbit (about 4-5lbs I'm guessing... He's a pretty big rabbit). Would I need to be concerned about this? Would/could the snake potentially eat the bird/small dogs/rabbit? How fast do they move to get prey? My rabbit and bird are only in their cages when we leave or sleep... Other than that, they are free roam and my bird is NOT clipped, he can and does fly. Third, I was wondering how interactive snakes are. Obviously, I haven't gotten too far in my research phase yet, but I'm just wondering... I really like interactive pets. Can/would a snake be able to be out of it's tank and interact with us? Would it enjoy just kind of hanging out around my waist/arm/shoulders/neck as I'm watching TV or cleaning the house? Can you play games or train snakes? And can you/do you take a snake outside places? For instance, could I take a snake with me to the pet store or to the park or on walks, etc? In car rides? Fourth, if I were to get a snake, I really would want to adopt one from a rescue... Is this wise? I rescue all my animals and wouldn't want it to be different for a snake unless necessary. Wow, that was a lot. Sorry! I just like to be thorough in my research and you gotta start somewhere! Thank you to all who read!
