3. Snakes

Snakes truly have a bad rep due to the Genesis story of the serpent (aka Satan) deceiving Eve in the Garden of Eden. Having Satan on your resume is certainly hard to erase. But snakes are fascinating creatures and can make a great pet. Growing up, my family and I had a pet snake, a Red-tailed Boa Constrictor. His name was Hunter.

We all loved him and were sad when we had to put him down as he became ill. He was with us for seven years. We never had any trouble with him and collected a lot of fun stories especially the stories where we scared our friends with him. FYI, snakes are wonderful if you suffer from chronic pain. Snakes will wrap around your hand or head, thinking you are a tree and their squeezing can be a good alternative for a massage.
