I am a reptile enthusiast and have always both loved and respected snakes. Today’s show discusses identification of venomous snakes, avoiding bites and basic first aid. I also am continuing to tell you what our stimulus bill could have been spent on. Don’t forget what these clowns have done, don’t go back to sleep!

  • How harmless snakes are killed via identification
  • What to do when a dangerous snake is in an area where it is not acceptable to leave it alone
  • Why making noise won’t scare a snake at all but walking heavily will
  • The basic first aid that can be helpful when you get bitten
  • When you have to break the rules a bit to save your own life
