@Laotionne - You say you don't think snakes should be pets because they are dangerous, but a dog is just as dangerous as a snake. There are way more people attacked and injured by dogs than by snakes, so should we just get rid of all pets? Cats can do a lot of damage with their claws. I have the scratches to prove this.
With a snake, like with any animal, the owner of the animal needs to be responsible. A responsible pet owner will ultimately determine how dangerous the pet is.
