The good Dr. Alvin Reid is well known for his penchant for serpents, and although I respect him tremendously, I can’t go along with him in this pursuit. I was thinking today about his recent acquisition of a new snake when I came across the picture below. It’s taken out of the Chipley Bugle which is the little home town paper from the town I grew up in, down in North Florida. Evidently some folks who live not far from where I grew up, were walking in the woods and came across this group of rattlensakes all in one area. Unbelievable! Although I really dislike the cold weather, it seems a good trade off if I can avoid things like this.
