SNAKES are often associated with danger but for Tracy-Lee Quinn they're the best pets she's had. With two spotted pythons at home, Ms Quinn said snakes are the kind of pet you want when you don't want a pet. "They're low-maintenance, easy to keep, danger-free and need little space to live," she said. "I barely notice they're there." Ms Quinn and other reptile enthusiasts will be at the Penrith Reptile Expo this Sunday, from 9pm to 4pm, at the Panthers exhibition marquee.
