No, its our snake but our grandson comes over and he loves it. In school the teacher was asking the kids what their favorite animal was and he said Jelly, he’s a snake! So we decided to surprise him, and after we get a tank and everything were going to give it to him to take care of. His dad is good with animals too. The only thing is when we got the snake he was used to live mice, but now we’re going to train him to tong feed train him. So they don’t have to worry bout getting live feeders.
