Creepy story nonetheless
that is creepy as hell. sounds like she was lucy in a sense that the snake didnt see a reason to actually try to eat her. i dont think id ever have the right mind to approach a boa thats 5 feet or longer much less a 10 foot one. asian vine snakes are cool but id rather not have one when i own a gecko. those snales like lizards :s.
that aside, id love to get a cornsnake but id have no place to put a 20g tank. theres a dream snake i have but its out of my skill level Bothreichis Aurifer, yellow splotch pit viper. its a beautiful misx of brich green, navy blue and yellow scaling. problem is availiblity, terrarium size and the venom. though as far as i know its a paralysing venom that isnt the most deadly in the snake kingdom.
