Snakes have quite a dubious reputation as both pets and wild animals. Some common misconceptions about this scaly species include slimy skin, aggressive temperaments and sharp venomous fangs. While they might look a little intimidating at first, you won't have to worry about sifting through a nest of vipers when looking for the right snake for sale to bring home. In fact, only about 20% of wild snakes in the U.S. are venomous; none of which are domesticated. Their bodies are covered in scales both thick and thin and are smooth and dry to the touch. Among the pet snakes you'll find for sale at Petco are species like the Blood and Ball Pythons, which have gorgeous and unique patterns wrapping around their bodies. The intricate designs on these scintillating serpents are so captivating that royalty once wore them as jewelry, a tradition many pet parents like to continue today.
Indeed, unlike other species of reptile pets, the live snakes you can pick up for sale can be picked up themselves for some one-on-one bonding time. Many of the pythons you'll find in-store, for example, are quite passive and can be easily handled once you've worked to gain their trust. Avoid trying to pick them up after they've eaten or while they're shedding their skin to help keep them even tempered.
