When McKenna brought Pretzelcoatl home, he was so tiny that he could fit in her one hand, and although she was always into reptiles, she never had a snake pet before. The cute little ball python was named after the Mayan feather serpent god Quetzalcoatl.
“I realized that I could make it a little bit sillier by just turning it into Pretzelcoatl. Because he’s a snake and…doing pretzel things,” McKenna said in an interview with The Dodo and added that he loves dark places where he can slide around. So she decided to make him crochet caves.
“I think I’ve made like four or five different crochet caves as he’s gotten bigger,” she continued. “He climbs into my sleeves a lot. When I’m hanging out with him in my bed, he will just go straight under the blankets.”
Pretzel also loves cuddling and watching TV with his mom. “I’ve had moments where I’ve been really down, and I know that I can come home and have a friend there that will just hang out with me regardless of how I’m feeling. He is my favorite pet that I’ve ever had, even though he’s just…a noodle!”
