Nice.
My wife wants one really bad.
That feller in the picture needs a snake.

Better not let my wife see that.

How about seeing something that is undeniably wonderful involving snakes.
Please watch this, it might just give you a different view of snakes.

We have a small zoo in town that we went to after the Mother's Day gathering and many other times while the kids were young. The ladies (why does it always seem to be the ladies?) there along with a few guys, would get the constrictors out and let the kids handle them. iirr, one was an albino. I did too, but I'm not a snake person. One daughter did really enjoy it and always wanted to go back for more.

I remember in Viet Nam when on R&R in Vung Tau, for a small pittance, you could have this really, really thick, huge boa wrapped around you and have a photo taken. No Thanks.

I was one who would kill any snakes in the yard. Mostly because my wife really doesn't like them. Then one day while cleaning up the backyard, I lifted up an old piece of carpet and there were a few very young garter snakes under it. They were about 10 inches or less and I had some welding gloves already on that I used when messing with weeds and vines to avoid poison ivy or oak. I picked up one of them and he went into his little King Cobra strike imitation. I thought it was so cool that the little guy was willing to fight that it changed how i looked at them. Now I live and let live - so long as they don't let the wife see them around the deck.

I'll still jump back involuntarily if i see a snake. Another daughter is seeing a fellow who does alot of yard work and tree work. He's been bitten numerous times by copperheads when picking up brush and cleaning up areas he's not all that familiar with.

We were at a traditional shoot up north at the Illinois/Wisconsin border when my wife missed the target and her arrow was caught up in a bush shrub of some kind. I reached in to grab it and right next to it was some 3 or 4 ft snake. I think I jumped about 3 or 4' back like I had springs in my feet. I doubt that will change anytime soon.

Oh, nice video. The yearly Cowboy Shoot that our club and Bill Oglesby (Badlands Bill from the History Channel doing trick shots with single actions and lever action rifles) would hold and promote to all his nationwide SASS friends would donate all the proceeds to the Make A Wish Foundation for the kids. At the time, I was the club pres and pistol chairman and would do much of the organizing. Those were good times back in the late 80's and 90's.

As to lizards, we had lots of these little Tokay gekos running around the compound walls. Once in the middle of the night on guard duty, one must have been in an interior bunker with me and an old 30. cal Browning, right behind my head. Out of the stillness of the night, he lets loose with that tee koo call of his. Eeerie to say the least.

It seemed like every week there w as a new bug hatch and the old ones would all be found dead in the sinks in the morning. I guess the little lizards helped munch on the live ones.
