How To Pet A Snake?

Do pet snakes feel affection?

Snakes don’t have the intellectual capacity to feel human emotions like love or affection.

So no, they can’t feel affection for you.

They can, however, feel an affinity for you as a non-threatening creature that cares for it.

Snakes make amazing pets, even if they don’t feel affection the same way humans do.

Can snakes be friendly?

As others have said, snakes are not ‘friendly’ the way dogs or cats or birds can be, but they can grow used to you, and be ‘friendly’ in the sense of being neither very scared of you nor aggressive towards you.

Do snakes bond with humans?

Snakes are pretty simple creatures. Theirs is a world of food, warmth, comfort, and secure hiding spots. They don’t really bond with their owners so much as get used to their owners. Such a snake will be familiar with being fed and handled, and will not feel like it needs to defend itself against a human.
