So I am in the market to get a snake, I think. I know that they live a long time and I want to make sure that I make the right decision on what type to get. Here is my situation: I live in a normal sized 2 bedroom apt with a small office. Our current pets include 3 cats, an albino fat-tailed gecko (Puzzle), and a fishtank. The fishtank and Puzzle's cage are in the living room, and the cats have the run of the place. When I got Puzzle, I had never had a reptile before, and I had always wanted a fat-tail. I did a little bit of research, but didn't really think about the fact that he was nocturnal, and I go to bed early...so my night-owl bf tends to get more face time with him than me! Haha. I just love him and wouldn't trade him for anything, but I am looking to get a reptile that is a bit more active during the hours that I am awake. I'm thinking snake because I have always thought it would be really fun to have a snake. When I was younger, my friend had a snake that she could take out and he would wrap around her waist or shoulders and just hang out. We even took him outside and downtown shopping with us! I remember thinking when I was older I would get myself a snake like that. (I keep thinking it was a Ball Python.) So my ideal criteria: -We don't have a lot of space, so smaller enclosure is better -preferably not nocturnal, so I can hang out with it during the day -likes to be handled and will hang out with me around the house Does this exist? I keep remembering this snake that my friend had that was so friendly and so much fun to hold and be around...and I'm wondering if my memory has clouded and I have this idealized theory of my future pet snake. Thanks in advance for any and all advice!
