    Snake collar/harness/leash?

    I was talking to a lady at the pet store yesterday about snakes, and she said she saw some people walking ball pythons and burmese pythons on the beach, on collars and leashes. Do they really make those for snakes? Do they work? If so, where can I find them? I just want to see what they look like

    How the heck would you keep a collar on a snake?! Putting a tube of fabric on a cylindrical, soft, moving animal with no limbs doesn't seem like it would work very well.

    Re: Snake collar/harness/leash?

    I don't believe that story at all.. Like the above said putting it on a cylindrical animal with nothing to stop it from moving. It would have to be tied very tight for the leash to keep a grip on it. I'm pretty sure any snake would hate that.

    Was she wearing a tie-dyed shirt and saying "maaaaan" a lot?

    I suspect the 60's may have been unkind to her.

    Besides the difficulty of putting a collar on a snake, and the resulting thrashing panic of said snake...

    How would anyone "walk" a python? Have you seen them moving on the ground? You'd take a single step every five minutes!

    I've seen leashes advertised for reptiles/snakes, but never yet seen one in use that wasn't a disaster.

    It was probably an idea developed by the same person who came up with the gerbil shirt:

    I'm convinced that there's some kind of mechanism under the threshold of every pet store that removes common sense as you cross into the building...especially when it comes to snakes.

    I've heard more stupid snake myths, rumors, lies, half-truths, and misinformation in pet stores by both pet store workers and regular bystanders than any other single place I've ever been...and keep in mind, I was raised in the Panhandle of Florida where half the people wanted to handle snakes to get them closer to The Lord, and the other half thought putting hemp rope around your camp site would keep snakes out...
