I grew up in the country so that shocks me!
Nora Walsh

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?
Kristen Linton
46:14
Thank you, Karen!!
Katie Meadows
46:25
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.
Elaine Johanson
46:39
I loved meeting snakes ‘close up’ from this very safe distance.
Pamela Simon
51:38
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?
Katie Meadows
54:48
Why do snakes molt?
Katie Meadows
57:16
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 :)
Katie Meadows
59:52
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?
Karen Weyant
01:00:22
Katie, I think that was common practice at one time!
Nora Walsh
01:00:39
I always heard that too!
Katie Meadows
01:00:58
That was Eleonore’s grandpa for the record hahaha.
Fran Bigman
