I grew up in the country so that shocks me!
My husband grew up in Ireland - snakes are not present there! He is a good person though, and has been known to fight against his phobia due to lack of exposure to free snacks found caught in bird netting.

What’s the biggest snake you take care of?
Thank you, Karen!!
Do the snakes ever bite? Why would a snake bite? I’m guessing that don’t feel you are a threat and you take good care of them.
I loved meeting snakes ‘close up’ from this very safe distance.
Q for Erica - If snakes were a literary form would they rhythmic / elusive like a poem or more straightforward like prose? Or maybe a page turning sidewinder?
Why do snakes molt?
I am terrified of snakes. My biggest fear. Thank you for showing us some and helping us to understand them. A little less scared now :)
My grandpa told everyone that the best way to prevent venom from spreading is to cut the skin around the bite, suck out the poison, and spit it out. Is that completely nuts?
Katie, I think that was common practice at one time!
I always heard that too!
That was Eleonore’s grandpa for the record hahaha.
