I agree those empty headed kardishans

Oh my goodness great just wait till the media runs all this and the show hits the air. I feel for all the snakes that are doomed to empty headed owners wanting to be like the idiots they idolize on tv. I am lost as to how they have clibed to stardom they have no talent other than being anoying.

Wow people, You all sound like bigger drama queens than a teenage girl! "oh she got a snake, I hate her!" So the girl wanted to buy a snake, she wasn't asking for you or anybody else to care but for some reason you all seem to care a great deal.

This article was childish and petty. "Just what the reptile community needs: empty headed owners using their snakes as a lifestyle accessory."

Who said she was using it as a lifestyle accessory??? maybe she just wanted a snake like the way ALL of us felt at one time, which was what got us into the hobby to begin with. Grow up kids.

Normally, I'd actually go along with the above posting in principle--who's to say that she didn't just decide to get a snake like anyone else might--except that anytime a celebrity gets an unusual pet and makes a big deal out of it (even if this snake--and from this picture, it looks like something in the Pituophis line, does anyone know what it really is?--is really pretty mundane) it always seems to go badly for the animal. So I'm skeptical, especially because you'd think someone who cared about their pet and made a living as a reality TV star would want to say: "Yes, this a --- snake, he's not really dangerous, they make awesome pets, this is how I got into the hobby..." But maybe, just maybe, we'll be pleasantly surprised. Here's hoping.
