Well, not surprisingly I've always been attracted to snakes. Their quiet, unassuming nature, and their tendency to avoid confrontation and other animals (people, too) really reminds me of myself. Misunderstood, too. Not to mention it takes a unique person to really get attached to them :P I'm only friends with the weirdest, usually x33
Edit: And I can honestly say that if I was in a tough spot and saw a wild snake near me, I'd feel like I was being watched over. And NOT by the devil.
