  1. this is absolutely cute. how cool it must be -getting to dine and drink with a snake!

    they’re very beautiful and elegant animals, and i’ve never had or seen a pet one before, so i may be really wrong, but don’t those cages seem a bit small?

  2. At first I thought this was a place where one could pick a snake and then have it prepared for them as a meal…which is disgusting to me. But then when I read the article and looked at photos, I thought cool. I not so keen on snakes, so this would be a nice way to help deal with my negative feelings about snakes in general, although there are some of course one needs to stay clear off.
