King Of Snakes »

There has been a lot of argument as to who holds the title of the biggest snake; actually there are two snake specie that can be place in this category – the Anaconda of South America and the Asiatic Reticulated Python. The latest record today of anaconda’s length is 37 feet only. According to some report by European explorers in South America Anaconda can reach up to 100 feet but no one has ever come close to measuring them because they are mostly under the water. Plus the fact that no one dared coming close to such a huge size, how about you trying? (lol).

Anacondas live in fresh water where they spend their time hunting for food. They are carnivorous who likes to eat pigs, deer, crocodiles, fish, jaguars… and humans? They can do eat humans, there have been no report about it, but the natives of South America do tells that Anaconda have done it before. Though Anaconda can be very dangerous it does not have poison, it just kill its prey by squeezing them with its big body or drowning them under the water. And Anaconda will eat its prey whole without biting the prey.

To some people Anaconda or Phyton can be fascinating pet. Like any other pets, taking care of these kind of exotic pet needs great responsibility and care in feeding and protection most especially making sure that it never go to the wilds. Big snakes to some are beautiful and exciting but they are definitely dangerous. And they can do it anytime, anywhere, even at your own house. Can harm anybody even its pet owner.

Not only me did this, many pet owners named their pet dog Snoopy as well because of its popularity after it’s several cartoon shows.

    The Brass Monkey Weather »

    This term can be confusing because it can pertain to many things but not monkey. Brass monkey is a phrase, a slang term that can be use to refer to weather or a kind of drink.  Brass monkey was first used C.A Abbey in his book Before the Mast in the year 1857, using the term to refer extreme coldness. But there were many beliefs as to where this phrase really originated. 

      Some believes that the phrase actually started during the Napoleonic War period. During this period guns and cannons were usually used, “Monkey” refers to a table or rail made of brass, which holds the cannon balls. But during a very cold weather the Brass Monkey, which holds the cannon balls will break making the cannon balls roll over. Somehow it does really refer to a very cold weather. Some might misunderstand it that Brass monkey’s testicles are losing when the weather is very cold. This is somewhat funny but it has nothing to do with monkey, the animal.

    Bull Snake As Pet »

    Among the snake species, the bull snake is the most common exotic pet. Many people like bull snake as pet because it has beautiful colors and is easy to look after especially if captive breed. Bull snakes are often found in Central North America, South Canada and North Mexico. They choose to inhabit in different areas where there are pinewoods, desert like areas, farm country and river valleys.

    Bull snakes are cold –blooded, large snakes that often exceeds 6-feet in length. Their usual colors are yellow, brown, black reddish or a mixture of those in white. Bull snakes use their tongue to smell their prey. They have teeth and bite but are not poisonous. This is their difference from rattlesnake though bull snakes also make hissing sound. Bull snakes kill their prey by squeezing them until it can no longer breathe after that they will swallow the prey whole. Their jaw has stretchy ligaments that can stretch if they will swallow bigger animals than them. Bull snakes usually eat rats, mice, gophers, prairie dog, ground nesting birds and the young of other snakes while they hate hawks and eagles.

    Since bull snakes are cold – blooded, they really hate hot temperature, in weather like this they can be seen hiding underground. They are most active by day especially during the morning. This snake can be aggressive when surprised and disturbed but most of them can be handled much better if they are captive breed. If thinking of getting bull snake as a pet, make sure that it is captive breed than captive in the wild.
