TRU researcher and 🐍 snake expert, Dr. Karl Larsen is often called upon when exotic snakes escape, or to give his opinion when people are injured by their reptilian pets. His best advice? Get a 🐶 dog. Or a 🐱 cat. Or a 🐦 bird. Or even a 🐲 bearded dragon. Despite his own lifelong fascination with snakes, Larsen says it would not be his first choice for a family pet. And before you opt for ownership, do your research! #myTRU #Research
