Baby Snakes

STL Worlds Fare 2015 4

That's just the name of my favorite Frank Zappa ditty. I don't think these are actually juveniles. Inexplicably, the raptor booth at this World"s Fare thing I mentioned yesterday had a couple of very tame snakes for the kids to handle. The birds would probably like these as a snack. Not crazy about snakes myself. I think it comes from childhood visits to my grandmother's house on the edge of the NY metro area, where I was constantly warned about deadly rattlesnakes in the woods.

Safe snakes or not, it can't be a good idea to let one get entangled in your necklace.

I'm not scared of snakes, at least not ones of this size. They look "friendly".

Great shots but with snakes you never know.

Beautiful shots. But no snakes for me either.

The yellow one reminds me of a much bigger one I saw here- a boa constrictor at a street fair; a reptile sanctuary had a couple of critters along with them.
