Actually, I find my snakes the easiest pets out there, LOL. I clean their water every other day, feed them once a week, and clean their tank out once every 3 months or so xD Which is why it's terribly sad when people don't take care of them and let them go. They require very little care, and are VERY hard to abuse. (Snakes, this is. Lizards and Turtles require much more devotion).
And yeah, my friend took Happi (: Me and him... we didn't quite get along :P And my friend loved him, so... why not? He's supposedly doing great over there (: He's now called Zane.
