Mark Scott, owner of East River constrictors, explains why his reptiles don’t deserve their bad reputation.

Mark Scott loves his pets, but many are terrified of them. Scott runs East River Constrictors, a small business in Brooklyn where he breeds “designer morphs” of the boa constrictor for profit. The snake is technically illegal within New York City, but Scott hopes to dissuade the popular stigmas surrounding his animals. Because he sure isn’t giving them up. “I’ll own snakes for the rest of my life,” he says. “If they want to arrest me for owning snakes, so be it.”
