Therapy snake

Post  Sylvias on Wed Feb 29, 2012 9:00 am

so... i have been getting pretty bad head aches for about 2 weeks now... and was bad enough today that i missed class so i went to the dr to get it checked it. Well he tells me it's probably muscle tension and prescribed some meds and said light massage might help it a bit..... to me this means i have an excuse to look for another snake lol
Because snakes are the BEST neck massagers but none of mine are the sit still kinda snakes that are happy to hang around your neck. The retic will kinda but he likes to burrow into my hair.... I thought... wow.. ball python? To small..to normal... no offence to people who like ball pythons. Never been a boa fan for some reason... their cute when their little but they loose their appeal as adults to me. and still very normal....
Well I have been thinking of getting a burm for educational purposes (especially with the laws we are facing now).... they are very 'normal' to but always adorable and give the best of the best massages.... So that's what I am looking for. Just a normal nothing special male burm.

So you'll take a free burm, yet you don't wanna take in any other freebies/rescues unless its something you want. That sounds a little bassakwards to me.

Do you have something out for me? I'm not quite sure where these accusations are coming from....
I am not looking for rescues, I have had rescues and I take them in from time to time IF it is something I can handle, but for the most part I try not to. I don't want to risk my own collection with something I try to help because I do not really have the best of quarantining/treatment spaces in my apartment.
I am not looking for a free craigslist burm or something like that, I would much prefer to just buy a juvie from a breeder, but if there is one offered for free it's worth looking into since it is something I am looking for anyways, in most cases free animals are in a shape that I don't want to deal with at this point in time.


I am not looking for an albino, I don't like albino burms, they just don't appeal to me. How is it so wrong to just want a regular normal burm?

In a previous post, you said "If we get in something cool and unique I will probably take it but other wise... needs to stay at the store".

Maybe it was your wording. This came off as not caring about the unwanted animals...."unless it was something cool"! I don't "have it in for you" ...I've never met you! As far as the Burm goes...to each his own. I was only offering an apology and a GREAT deal on an Albino Burm! I completely understand that you want a normal..

It's not at all about not caring it's more that I don't need a hundred leopard geckos or something like that to re-home. Generally when we get relinquished animals at the store I only take them if they are something that appeals specifically to me (like the salamander), something that I know the general public and first person coming in lookin for a free animal most likely wont be able to care for but I know I can find it a good home (Savannah monitors or things like that... only got one of those once thankfully), or things that need a bit of rehabilitation but not something that will require extensive vet care that i can't afford for an animal I'm not keeping. Thankfully we don't get returned reptiles to often so it's rarely something I have to make a decision on, when we do though, they generally need a little specialized care just to get them in good health again and I only work 3 days a week and don't trust my associates to stick to any plan I make for them, so often times I end up bringing them home and adopting them out. but if it's something I don't want, that is pretty common and easy to care for, and that is apparent good health I will leave it there so that it can be adopted out through the store. Despite what you seem to insinuating, I do everything i can without getting fired to make things better for the animals. Hell I have refused to sell something as cheap and simple as feeder fish before because the person wanted to put them in little glass vases to use as wedding decorations! I explained to her why it was a bad idea and when she didn't care that her tables would be covered in dead fish I told her that they were still leaving creatures, not decorations and I wouldn't sell them to her for that purpose.

Sylvias,

I totally agree.

Life working in a pet store must be very frustrating, especially if you really care for

animals.

I've talked to Bryan at AA for years about this and listened (eavesdropped) as

customers talk to him about herps.

I've told Bryan on many occasions I could never do that kind of work.

It would take about 2 days for him to fire me. Smile

Two interesting examples:

A person called in and ask if they bought alligators.

When he/she heard Bryan's answer, it became a "Caiman Alligator".

Bryan ask to see it or a picture of it. Laughing

Another person wanted to know what to do to care for a sick cricket. scratch

I could write a novel complaining about the idiots I have dealt with in my job and I've only been there 2 years... it is certainly not a life long position...just a step above mcdonalds while I am working my way through college...

That is so funny...yet VERY sad!!! I'm sorry, but I think I would love to see the look on a new brides face when her center pieces were all covered with "belly up" gold fish!!! It's all good with us...BUT, I have to ask you this....you recently tore up a member for "shopping for Ball Pythons". Is therapuetic massage a valid reason to buy a snake? I don't ask my animals to mow the yard!!!! Just sayin.....come on....that's funny!!!!!!!

I think it's a very good reason actually, if you can enjoy a snake and it does something for you as well all the better, but the main reason should be that you enjoy it... I, personally like most of my animals to be "working" animals, meaning I use many of them for educational shows (always supporting captive husbandry and responsible ownership of course) that's not the only reason I have my animals though, if I wasn't truly passionate about them I wouldn't have as many oddballs or just as many in general as I do.

Jeff,
When are you expecting albino burm babies? To me, they are the most stunning of all the morphs. Pat's "Bananas" is a looker.
