This is my 8-year-old ball python, B.A.F.O and I. The back story for how I ended up with a snake is a very unusual one. I’ve always had a fear of snakes and decided one day to overcome my fears…. a normal person would have done that by handling a snake and have been done with it, I on the other hand decided owning one was the best way to overcome my fears. An impressive 8 years later, here she is in all her glory!
