This is Hermione. She lives in a tank in the room of my bio lab. And is the reason I came home from said lab SEETHING with rage.
I had made my peace with the fact that I would probably only be able to admire her from afar. But today, since vertebrates are one of the topics, the TA says that after lab we can hold her if we want! So I’m psyched through the next two hours.
But then, when the time came to get her out of the tank, the guy they picked clearly had literally ZERO snake experience, except for maybe the wild garter snakes living under the house. Because what does he do? HE GRABS HER HEAD LIKE HE THINKS HE’S FREAKING JEFF CORWIN WRANGLING A BLACK MAMBA.
And then, mystery of mysteries, the snake starts to freak out! And get stressed! Almost like THAT’S NOT HOW YOU HOLD A FUCKING PET SNAKE. And then he puts her right back down in the tank and closes the lid and NOBODY gets to hold her.
And worst of all, when I tried to tell the TAs that that is NOT how you hold a snake, they argued with me! I left so angry and disappointed and am currently drafting an email with sources on how to handle a PET snake. (Literally all of them say that one thing you should NEVER do is grab the head.)
I’ve been on this blog for (roughly) only three months, now, and already I’ve acquired over 600 followers! To me, that is amazing to gather so many followers in such a short amount of time. I truly value each and every one of you, and am thankful for the support you all continue to show me - and have from the beginning!
I’m going to cut to the chase, here, and get straight to the blogs I admire and love the most on this website. No one will be bolded or italicized, only because I feel as though that is unfair to others and I value you all equally :D Here we go~

In an effort to play catch up with print orders, I’ve decided to temporarily close the print store for a few weeks. The store will close as of Monday, so if you’d like anything from the shoppe, get it naaaoooow! Everything will be caught up and shipped within the next week - 2 weeks! Thanks for the love and continued patience with the insanity of my schedule and one woman show!
