This is my Sinaloan Milksnake up close and personal. He is as docile as any dog, or cat that I have owned. I trust that he won't bite me because I got him when he was about the size of a pencil. Never once in the last five years has it struck at me. Of course not every snake is like this one. I have been bit by others that I kept as pets. Shot using manual focus on an HG10.
