i hate them... I know i should not, that they are just creatures like everything else on our planet, just doing what they do... but they are the only animal on this planet that i truly dislike with a passion. i would not say i fear them, because i have looked at them up close in cages etc, but i definitely do not like them anywhere near me when they are outside of a cage...and if someone brought one really close to me, i definitely would not like it at all. i do not know what it is...maybe it is their eyes...the slithering, they truly do look evil, and not on the religious "serpent" sense, they just look evil in a general horrible sense. i know some people consider them beautiful and such, but i don't get that. i know it can't be that i just really hate reptiles...because i do not feel the same sense of dislike for iguanas and salamanders, tortoises and turtles and such. i just really hate snakes. belly crawling, slithering douchebags they are.
