|Holding a boa for the first time...|
Snakes are adorable. Well, at least some of them. About two months ago, I had a chance to hold a snake for the very first time, and it was a great experience. You can see the snake -- it's a rainbow boa named Kali -- on the pictures. You can see me grinning like an idiot too. :) I was fascinated to find out that Kali needs to eat only once in two weeks, and could survive for an entire year without any food.
Kali is two, maybe two and a half years old, about a meter long, and pretty much used to people. She belongs to a friend, and the friend's six-year-old granddaughter simply adores Kali and loves holding her. Kali doesn't complain, either; as I said, she's used to people, and doesn't mind being held.

For the end, there's some snake fun -- if you have kids, they might love this one.
