Names for Pet Snakes

Names for Pet Snakes

Snakes make terrific pets, although they are by nature solitary creatures. They don't like crowds or loud noises, so you don't plan on taking your to the mall the snapping pics with curious passersby. Because they keep to themselves, it’s also wise to keep just one snake per habitat.

Snakes don't love being touched and handled, though you will need to do so for about five minutes each day so it grows used to human contact.

Snakes also love a repetitive routine, so stick to a regular schedule for feeding, changing their water and cleaning the tank.

While there are numerous types of snakes to choose from, consider the corn snake, ball python, and kingsnake as they make good pets. Be prepared for a long relationships as ball pythons can actually live for 20 to 30 years!

Here are some wild and wonderful snake names.
