Reaper was my first snake and he was a great friend. He was sweet and gentle and I could hand him off to curious kids, didn’t have a mean bone in his body. He helped a lot of people see snakes in a more positive light. He went way too soon and we don’t know why, but I will never forget my time with him. Reaper opened a whole new world for me, he was unique and beautiful. Now there is a hole in my heart and I hope to see him again.
