The "serpent" seems to have played a pivotal role in the temptation of Adam, and received a curse from the LORD.

Genesis 3:14

And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because thou hast done this, thou art cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon thy belly shalt thou go, and dust shalt thou eat all the days of thy life:

Over and over, snakes are used and abused.

Mark 16:18

They will pick up serpents with their hands; and if they drink any deadly poison, it will not hurt them; they will lay their hands on the sick, and they will recover.”

Yet, they were around way before any Jewish Tribe

Despite their curse I am happy that snakes seem to be doing just fine. I have a nest of racers living under my house right now..How do you feel about snakes?

Be careful that the one pet doesn't decide the other pet is food.

@RobertPiano WOW I didn't know that about the plague. I guess it makes sense since they eat rats and other filthy vermin. Cool fact of the day.
@SteveinCO: LOL! Never thought about that one. It's no different than owning a dog and a cat is it? ;)

Well a lot of snakes actually do eat rodents and the like, so a chinchilla or sugar glider really does look JUST like food to them.

FYI - they really don't play well together --

Idk I am weirded out by them

had snakes as pets, they are pretty shy but with careful handling they become very good pets. used to wear mine as living jewelry. Under the house though different matter. Mainly because wild snakes do contain bacteria that is very harmful to humans and other animals. 

Ball pythons and the like make good pets, as do boas and Burmese pythons, and they have just enough of a brain to show different personalities.

Thanks Angela, my house is sorta like this...but totally clear underneath so no worries. I have 3 acres, 2.5 I left as a natural hammock, so it's a little wild around here sometimes!

How do you feel about snakes?

I have nothing against them. They are just animals, doing what animals do. But put them on a motherfuckin' plane... Then we have problems.

Tasty --!

I give snakes a wide berth but if they are in a cage, I can watch them up close. That pretty sums up how i see snakes
