It almost seem like some new keepers go out of their way to ignore good advice from experienced keepers. And seek the advice of other noobs, as that is more in line with what they want to hear and their pre conceived ideas about snake keeping. Un necessary baths, showers, feeding, feeding specific colour mice, and the list goes on and on.... These poor reptiles that are being tortured just for the sake of someone who lacks common sense. At the end of the day our pythons require very little from us. And certainly much less than some of these people are giving them.
