*Dwight Howard is truly a Texan. How so? Well, he loves to fire his shotguns and charm his 20 snakes. He opened up to Bleacher Report about his hobbies.

Yes sir, Howard really likes going to the gun range.  “It’s what you do in Texas.” He owns not only shotguns, but semiautomatics and handguns as well.

One of his favorite handguns is the gold-looking Desert Eagle pistol. Nevertheless, other guns he owns are only for show — miniguns and bazookas.

Howard doesn’t get more eccentric or Texas than with his love for snakes. He owns 20 of them. NBA Senior Writer Jared Zwerling told Howard,  “I’ve got to see them before I leave Houston.” He replied, “We can make that happen tonight.”
