Slash Got Rid Of Reptile Collection When Baby Was Born

Rocker SLASH parted ways with his famous collection of killer reptiles when his son was born - because he worried the baby would be harmed if a snake or lizard got loose.
The former Guns N' Roses star once boasted a menagerie of slimy critters but admits he had enough "close calls" with family pets to realise snakes and babies didn't mix.
So he got rid of all of his pets, apart from an anaconda that was a birthday gift.
The Welcome to the Jungle hitmaker says, "I used to have an insane collection of reptiles. I had that for a lot of years until my first son was born... I'd had enough close calls with domestic pets - cats and snakes - and so I got rid of them all.
"Now I only have one (snake) and he's pretty big... He's about five feet, six feet - something like that. He's actually a birthday present from a friend of mine. He was pretty much a newborn when I got him."
