    My daughter is the proud owner of a black scorpion,black and white milk snake,a yellow Gecko and a bald python ha ha, I know it is a ball python.
    I can handle the gecko and the milk snake I let her take care of the other two.
    It was okay to have a grand doggie and grandkitties but this is stretching the limits of my granniness.

    Every seed that you plant ,doesn't sprout.
    Every seed that sprouts, doesn't make it to maturity.
    Every cutting that you stick doesn't grow roots.
    Every cutting that roots doesn't grow to a small plant.

    ^Completely agree.

    This case reminds me of the gator-attacks-nude-man story.

    I think that you don't know enough about the story to say that. All it takes it to forget to wash your hands well enough to totaly erase the scent of a rat to cause this to happen.

    You can pick up something that the scent is on and this could happen.

    This guy has had this snake for years. He made a mistake and died. People die from small mistakes while driving all the time, we don't call them irresponsible.

    Do you know if the Ohio man made a mistake (like: forgetting to wash his hands before coming in contact with the snake, leaving a feeder animal’s scent on him), inducing the animal to "coil itself around his neck and strangle him"? -If he forgot to take the necessary procedures or didn't execute them properly, then he was irresponsible, IMO.

    A person that makes a “small mistake” when having a large responsibility means that he/she is irresponsible. Consider this example: A person forgets to lock his/her front door, allowing a burglar come inside and kidnap the person’s kid. The mistake was a “small mistake”; do you consider that person irresponsible? Of course!

    If he had taken the necessary procedures before coming in contact with the snake, then the incident could be considered as something that was not in his control. In this case, the man would not be an irresponsible person.

    I handled my daughter's hamster the other day with the smell of sunflower seeds still on my hand. It was touch and go for awhile, but I unwound the rodent from around my neck just before the world went dark. That man had a much smaller margin of error with his snake. He'd probably still be alive if it had been a hamster. Of course, maybe he had just been handling his daughter's hamster before handling the snake. The world is a complicated place.
