We live on almost three acres and our backyard is as open as a football field.
I don't openly advertise that I have them....You never know how someone will react. People see a snake this large and panic!
I will say this, I live about two miles from a house where a woman was killed a few years back by her black mamba....yes...a black mamba! When police came, they removed about fifty snakes from the house, with the majority of them venomous. You always hear about stories like that, and think it never happens around you.
Most of the year, the snakes are in my high school biology classroom. I can't keep them there over the summer....it gets too hot and would most likely kill them. I will keep them home this year through the breeding season. This will be the first time breeding them. I am giving the females extra exercise to help improve their muscle tone. I am hoping that this will help avoid any egg binding issues. Who knows.
Thanks again for the complement about the snakes. They are great animals. I will post some more pictures soon.
