Do you like snakes? Or do you not like them and prefer to stay as far away from them as possible?
We’re talking about harmless, non-poisonous snakes, not rattlesnakes and others that can put a serious damper on your day by forcing a visit to a hospital or maybe even a permanent dispatch to the Great Hereafter.
When you’re hiking a pretty trail and spot a gopher snake or garter snake (pictured above) right alongside it, do you love to grab the little fellow and hold it for a few minutes? Or do you immediately take a wide step past the reptile and then calm yourself with a little meditation to keep ye ol’ heart from pounding out of ye ol’ chest?
So what is it? Love, fear or ?? Curious minds really do want to know.
