Challenge: What’s the appeal of keeping large snakes?

I just don’t understand the appeal of having this 5 foot long reptile in your house. I understand they’re not venomous or anything, but… Are they cuddly or something?

If you’ve kept or are keeping a large snake, please message me explaining why you love having your pet. :)
