    Not to mention that "snake hugs" usually mean something else entirely...

    Look, logically, I know that my snake is a snake and only has the capacity for certain things in life. Love likely isn't one of those.

    But.... she comes out of her hide when she hears my voice. So that's enough for me.

    That's kinda how I look a it too. I don't think they're capable of emotions beyond fight, flight, and food. Mine seems to act differently with me but I also handle her regularly and on top of that the hand that drops in delicious rodents is attached to me. She's extremely comfortable with me and she knows that I'm not a threat and on the other hand I still make sure I'm aware of how I'm handling and moving about when around her to not invoke an instinctual response whereas with my German Shepherd I know without a shadow of doubt something like a sudden movement won't get me bit. When I'm laying in the lovesac watching the tube my bp lays on my shoulder or sprawls out on the top of my head and seemingly watches tv. I highly doubt it's because she likes to or loves me. I think she just knows that she's safe and it's probably just a nice warm spot. As for the tv it's probably just the heat coming off it or something that has her interested I'd imagine. I think as humans we have a tendency to interpret that extra comfortability or odd behaviors as "affection" when they aren't capable of those emotions per se. But if we perceive it that way then is there really any difference anyway?

    If they can express aggression, become defensive, or become calm, something has got to be going through their heads. I agree that they dont love tho

    I think they can have feelings of trust for certain people, and they can associate handling with being able to explore or play. Love is a pretty deep word to associate with a snake, though. They do have feelings. They may not be very advanced feelings, but there are still some feelings there.
    Lots of pets, all loved and well-cared for: 2 BP's, 1 ratsnake, 1 panther chameleon, 2 ferrets, 1 hedgehog, 2 cats, 1 dog, and a chicken.

    Re: I think my snake loves me

    I 100% wouldn't say love, but one of my BPs seems at least somewhat fond of me... in the way his cute little dumb head can be, anyway.

    Re: I think my snake loves me

    Extremely interesting how this poll has changed over the years. The top bar is slowly but surely catching up with the bottom bar.

    Is it bad that I can remember when this was started??
