halloween ball

I love all animals, but I’ve never thought about having a snake as a pet. Until now! I just spent 20 minutes trying to convince my husband that we needed to go get this guy!

His name is Pumpkin, and he is a pied ball python. One of his markings is a nearly perfectly formed jack-o’-lantern!

If you are interested, and he hasn’t already found a home, he is at the Zoo Creatures Pet Store in Plaistow, New Hampshire!
