Albi

Albi was het slachtoffer bij een vechtscheiding. De slang was het huisdier van de man, maar de vrouw nam de slang mee zonder toestemming van haar man. Ze verwaarloosde het dier bewust uit wraak naar haar man. De slang werd na klachten van de buren in beslag genomen door de politie.

When Pinta was one year old, the owner gave her to a friend to look after her. This soon became permanent and the friend became the new owner. As the snake grew bigger, the new owner build a custom-made terrarium. Sadly when the family decided to move after a few years, Pinta could not go with them despite the good care of the owner.
