>>Normaly I would not take notice to something like this but I noticed he cited his reason for getting rid of his ball python was because it was not a good pet to have around the house with a baby. Is this a forcast for the future that a ball python is considered a danger to a baby or is it just the wifes excuse to get ride of the python she wanted gone anyway and he caved?
>>Rob

It is a bit of the family, public and doctors telling the folks to rid themselves of the animal. It doesnt matter the species. It is something VERY common that occurs and has been happening for all 15 years I have been in rescue. My own doctor at one point mentioned I would need to get rid of all my reptiles if I choose to get pregnant so I wouldnt get the baby sick. Of course Drs are still suggesting dumping the pet cat for the same reason.

The most common animal dump stories are Getting Divorced/Getting Married (Odd that these two are the same deal), having a baby and loosing the house. This goes for all species.
