Pet python

Hubert, a male ball python, is  4 1⁄2 inches long. He is a pet of Jen Horn, her husband, Wyatt, and son, Nathan.

Wyatt and Jen Horn and son, Nathan, got their first pet snake, Nagini, a male amelanistic corn snake, almost six years ago, and they added a new one about every six months for a bit there.

“I’ve never been scared of snakes,” Jen Horn said. “Seeing them in the wild was always a fun experience, but I didn’t realize what they were really like until I was interacting with one on a daily basis.”
