The choice of a snake should be approached consciously: one need's to find out the features of the species, diet and food preferences, whether it is poisonous, and the strength of its “hugs”.
In this video, the owner of a snake gets bitten by his slithery companion.
“I was letting my snake hang out on my coat rack right behind me while I was cleaning and on IG Live. I kept bobbing up and down taunting her and forgetting she was there then she tagged me on my shoulder really quick. No injury, just funny", he commented on the incident.
