This is a poster on one of our nearby bus stops. It was ironic that I had to step over a small dead snake to get the picture.

Aw! That is ironic. People around here would FREAK if they saw a snake on the ground...they would not know what to do. Their only contact with snakes are in the zoos. Keeps them safe, I guess (the snakes, not the people).

Yeah, we are really blessed to have a lot of snakes and lizards where we live. Sadly we do come across some dead ones.

We have the same problem here as well. I can't tell you how many times I have seen or stopped people with shovels trying to kill snakes. If they see a Copperhead or Eastern Diamondback they run, but a Black Ratsnake or Corn snake they will try to kill! Idiots!!

It is interesting to me the many people at work I have educated about Lucy. I will talk about her very lovingly and then they will ask what she is. I will say a snake and will get one of three reactions: very cool, that's different, and OMG!
I will tell them that they are not always what they are portrayed to be; she has never "hissed" at me (which she hasn't, just blown air out her nose); she's is very docile, etc. They seem to be genuinely interested. Even people who really don;t like them I've gotten to look at pictures.

We get a lot of snakes around my work too. Some of my fellow workmates tried to feed a snake chicken bones..........they seriously have no idea.

I just love reptiles!
