Snakes occupy a unique place in both the world of pets and the reptile kingdom at large. In addition to lacking the legs of their reptile counterparts, snakes are also without eyelids or external ears, contributing to their unmistakable head shape. The skulls of snakes are composed of many more joints than other lizards, allowing them to expand and swallow prey many times the size of their heads. Contrary to popular belief, most species of snake are non-venomous. Those that do possess venom generally use it as a hunting tool to kill and incapacitate their prey; self-defense is not a primary use of venom. Non-venomous snakes kill primarily by constricting or swallowing their prey alive.

Exotic pet stores are required to record the names and addresses of every buyer who purchases a snake covered by the state regulations, but they aren’t required to submit those records to the state. Individual pet stores maintain the records in the event state regulators ask to see them. By law, snake buyers then have 20 days to apply for the proper permit with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. A man steals snakes from an Australian pet store.

Love also stated that the number of morphs and colorations in corn snakes can make identification difficult, if a given snake’s genetics are in question. One of the most striking new morphs is that of the Palmetto corn snake. Originally bred by Don Soderbergh in the early 2000s, the Palmetto features a pale white body flecked with individual scales of brown and gold. A striking, visually appealing animal, the first Palmetto corn snakes sold for over $4,000. However, as this new morph becomes more available, the price will drop to a suitable price for a pet store.The owner of the python - Jean-Claude Savoie - was interviewed by the Canadian network . According to the interview, the python was not in the pet store downstairs, but rather in a specially-built cage in the apartment upstairs. The python escaped from its enclosure through a hole in the ceiling, where a ventilation fan had been removed for maintenance. This gave the snake direct access to the air ducts in the ceiling, which then collapsed under the snake's weight above the living room. The air duct containing the snake crashed through the ceiling tiles and onto the boys, who were sleeping on a floor mattress located about eight feet from the snake's enclosure. The owner of an Oregon pet store said a stolen python was returned five days after a security camera recorded a man shoving the snake into his pants. An exotic pet store took a big hit after a thief stole thousands of dollars worth of snakes. Don Everson's been in the exotic pet business for years. He owns Bart's Exotic Pet Store on 84th.
