Ahh! Snakes..said with nostalgia

When I was younger a friend and I considered ourselves junior herpetologists. We'd go into various ecosystems looking for the snakes you could find there. We actually became very good at it. I'm sure if our parents realized how successful we had become at finding and collecting water moccasins, they would have croaked. Right after they'd have croaked us.
Anyways, the lesson here is to be able to identify what you encounter. Even if you don't like snakes, knowing what you're facing is better for you and the snake.
