Sup /an/, I got a question.
Are reptiles, snakes to be specific, capable of being trained, feeling affection, recognizing its owner et cetera?
I genuinly don't know and I'd like to know.
Been dreaming about having a pet snake for years now, thought about buying a little ball python.

Yes anon, they do. Otherwise people would just avoid the whole scenario and keep a sausage in their tanks. Would be much cheaper on upkeep..

>capable of being trained
Depends on what you mean. Your snake isn't going to learn tricks, but it can make associations and you can tame a skittish snake.
>feeling affection
They sure won't show it if they do. They'll tolerate handling, but they don't crave it or need it. If you want a bond, a snake is not for you.
>recognizing its owner
Once again, affection is not in the picture, but they can learn to prefer a person who feeds them and handles them regularly.

Have you always been disabled or were you in some sort of accident? Of course they don't all behave identically, but they all, to a degree, exhibit the characteristics OP has described.

I hope you get better soon.

On an unrelated note, what's blini kot's breed?
