Snake Man theme song

All Snake Killers

God has made us different,
he made us so unique.
We slither on the ground,
we have no hands and feet.
Though you find us scary,
or maybe just plain weird,
our intentions are not to hurt you
or cause you such great fear.
Our venom's not meant for humans
but to help us when we eat.
So, please stop the senseless killing
before we're all extinct.
We're not saying you have to love us
or tell us we're the best.
God's the one who created us.
So, treat us with respect.

Fears are educated into us
and can, if we wish,
be educated out.
-Karl A. Merringer

A righteous man cares for
the needs of his animal...
Proverbs 12:10

The snake is an animal.
It has a backbone and a heart.
It has red blood.
It drinks water and eats food.
It breathes air and feels fear
just like every other
animal in the world.
And, it's in a body that's
the hardest thing
for the average
person to understand.

 Black Racer 

Black Racer Coluber constrictor

The black racer which is sometimes referred to as a black runner is solid black with a lighter colored belly and a white chin. Reaching a length of up to six feet, the black racer is long, slender and built for speed. Occupying a variety of habitats such as agricultural fields, brushy areas and forests with sparse undergrowth, it crawls about during the day with its head held high searching diligently for its next meal. Prey items of the black racer include a wide variety of animals such as insects, rodents, birds, lizards and other snakes such as smaller racers and even pigmy rattlesnakes and copperheads. When prey is located, they, like their close relative the coachwhip, chase it down and swallow it live since they are not constrictors. Thee black racer is a harmless snake and usually tries to retreat if threatened. If handled, the black racer may bite repeatedly until released. Since the black racer is one of Georgia's harmless, non-venomous snakes, it is protected by law and may not be captured or killed.
