You say you don't handle your snakes for the fun of it.
Why do you keep them then?
Is it because you would rather just have display animals?
The reason I ask is even though I have all of mine in glass aquariums, I don't spend any time watching them. The time I do spend with them (beside during cleaning and feeding) is purely to handle them for the fun of it.
Sometimes I find it hard to justify the keeping of an animal if it is something I will never hold and interact with. I want animals that I can hold. Watching animals through glass (or plastic, etc.) just doesn't cut it for me. Therefore I will never buy extremely large snakes (Burms, Retics), Chameleons, or amphibians. I'm sure there are other's but I can't think of them right now. (Probably because they aren't on my wish list of herps to keep.)
PS. I don't know if anyone else has had this problem or not, but when I tried to respond to this post I was immediately swept to the banner's site (The Daytona Expo). Like they have the links all screwed up. I wasn't able to post until I hit the "Preview Message" button and then the "Edit Message" button.
