Project 365 Photo a day: 365/78

My photo of the day for yesterday was Minky our Corn snake.  It took me more than a year to get use to her. The kids always love teasing me with her and they just loved it when I jump up and scream when they bring her near me. Then one day I decided I better make friends with Minky. Please don’t get me wrong I will not take her out of her cage but when hubby goes away I need to clean her cage and for this I needed to start trusting her.

Minky is not aggressive at all and now and then when hubby needs to clean her cage and the boys are not around I will hold her but only in my hands and my arms are covered. I hate the feeling of her going  over my skin. Some days I’ll sit in front of her cage and watch her. When she needs to shed her skin she is so dull and her eyes are gray. She shed her skin not long ago just look how gorgeous her colors are.

Here are a photo of her eating her dead mouse. I don’t like it if they give her food that is alive…
