Ya know, I thought about this for a second and it is the snake. Not the small snake, but the ones that can one day swallow your children. I have to wonder about the people who have them. I watched a show on Animal Planet about exotic pets being dumped off in Florida. Weird!
BTW...does anyone else remember the guy who had a tiger and alligator in his apartment? That one was always a head scratcher for me. Two deadly animals living in your small NY apartment, that's a guy with a death wish.
