A house is not a home without a pet...


And this week we are celebrating all our wonderful pets over at www.iheartfaces.com

I realize alot of people will look at this picture and think 'that's not a pet' but it is....just not a cute and cuddly one! My girls all love snakes, lizards, salamanders etc. This is a baby ringneck snake that they caught outside under a rock. I let them keep him captive for a while and then we released him back to the wild.

I think he's even smiling a bit in this picture ;)





If you love animals like I do, you need to come on over to see all the entries in this weeks 'Pet's' competition!

Aww, very cute! =) Never thought I would say this of a snake but this baby one is just cute.

i love little snakes like these. It makes you feel brave to let one wrap it's scaly body around your hand, even though you know it can't do any harm! Still, it's a snake!! Great shot.

The smooth background colors really compliment the color of the snake.

Very good.....

Carrie said...

This is an awesome shot. And you are gutsy...I'm not sure that I would ever let my kids get a snake since I am not a fan unless they are behind glass or on tv! Good luck :)

What a cool pic! My Husband has a 4 1/2 foot ball python named Monty (very fitting) and we just love him! He is not aggressive in any way so I am completely comfortable with snakes and this one is too cute! Yes, I just said a snake is cute! LOL
