They're so very beautiful. This was one of the most extensive collection of snakes I've ever seen. This was at the World of Reptiles Serpentarium in St. Cloud Florida.
Snakes, love'em or hate'em. There's no middle road, I find them intriguing, love to see them but at a distance and having a glass between the serpent and I is a good thing.
There are a lot of snake collectors in Florida and serpentariums, even a reality show made around the capture of invasive pythons and boas.
When we were in Orange County we heard on the news of a local man reaching behind a wood pile and getting bit by a coral snake, Florida has a large healthy population of venomous reptiles.
