    Two days ago it was incredibly warm here in southeast PA, so I decided to let Edgar get some sun. He absolutely loved it! He was so curious about everything and loved stretching out and sitting in the sun. I was nervous the whole time (even constantly looking in the sky for any birds that may pick on him, though I'm sure its an irrational fear) and I never left his side (of course). Have you ever taken your ball python outside? If so, how often so you take them out?

    I'll also add some pictures!

    Not irrational at all!
    There are a number of predatory birds that would love to make off with your snake.

    Oh my! I don't even know how I'd react. It's probably the worst way I could lose my Edgar. But, of course, it is nature.

    That's absolutely correct! A boy I knew some years ago left his Ball Python outside in his garden in a small tree, and went inside to get something. When he came back outside the snake was being carried quickly away by a hawk. There was nothing he could do.

    Ferasaeva, don't leave your snake! Also remember those other less feathery but equally adept predators: dogs, cats, humans, etc.

    It being "nature" won't help when we lose our pet in any way that is our own fault. Since we have them as pets, we actually have to make sure to protect them as best we can from "nature" and what it can do! Your snake may eat a diseased jerbil, or get carried away in a flood, in "nature", but we can certainly try to not let that happen.:) Not while they are in our care and we are responsible.

    I also let my snakes out in the park for walks in the grass, but I am their constant guard out there.

    I completely agree! I'd never do anything that could put my baby in danger! I absolutely love coming across people like you who obviously care so much about our furless friends :)
