Snake don’t creep me out….that is if I see them first.  During vacations in the Black Hills of South Dakota we always made a stop at the Reptile Gardens. It was easy to walk around and look at all the alligators, lizards and snakes then. Of course they were behind glass.  In my “adventures” along the White River in SD you always kept a “sharp ear” out for that telltale “buzz” from down in the grass. Like I said I don’t mind snakes as long as I see them first, I can’t imagine missing this one! 48 feet long and weighing 2500 pounds!
