His late father Michael Jackson had a great appreciation for animals and nature.
And Prince Jackson has clearly inherited this gentle trait, as he was spotted heading out of a pet supplies store in Woodland Hills on Monday carrying an armload of habitat decor for his snakes.
The 17-year-old sported a smile as he carefully carried a smooth piece of wood which he would likely add to his reptiles’ environment.

Prince looked suave in black dress trousers and equally snappy dress shoes, with a fitted white tank which showed off his bulked up physique.
He wore an array of necklaces as he made his way out of the store with a friend in tow.
The teenager had clearly stocked up, with the plastic bag over his arm appearing to be filled with pet care bits and pieces in addition to the section of driftwood.

Prince looks been maintaining a reptile habitat, and doing a particularly diligent and responsible job of it too.
He even made a video of the snake cages, which he is currently in the process of building and decorating, and shared it on his public Vine account earlier this month.
‘These are the snake cages that we have,’ the animal enthusiast explains as he gives the viewer a tour of a large series of reptile enclosures in what looks to be a garage of some sort.
He goes on to explain what kinds of snakes he is taking care of, listing: ‘Anacondas in the middle, boas on top, [reticulated pythons] bottom.’
The King of Pop’s son seems to be in particularly good spirits of late, which may have something to do with his blossoming love life.
Prince and his new girlfriend Nikita Bess were first spotted holding hands just last month after a trip to Las Vegas with the entire family to celebrate Blanket’s 12th birthday.
The pair have subsequently spent Prince’s 17th birthday together, Valentine’s Day together, and most recently a romantic day out in Malibu on Saturday filled with public smooches and hugs.
