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.

 Corn Snake 

Corn Snake  (Elaphe guttata)

The corn snake, also known as the red rat snake, is one of Georgia's most beautiful snakes. Due to its beauty, it is very popular in the pet trade where it comes in a variety of different color patterns that are achieved through selective breeding. In Georgia, the corn snake is protected by law and must be kept in captivity only by those possessing a permit from the Georgia Dept. of Natural Resources. This is true not only for the naturally occurring color pattern but also the many different color morphs produced in captivity. The corn snake is closely related to the black and gray rat snakes and also is as adept at climbing. Often occupying a variety of habitats, the corn snake can often be found in pine or hardwood forests as well as agricultural fields and suburban areas. Killing their prey by constriction, they consume frogs, lizards, other snakes, birds and their eggs but mostly dine on small mammals such as mice and rats. After their spring mating occurs, females can lay as many as 40 eggs that hatch about 2 months later. The young corn snakes resemble the adults but usually possess bolder colors. Although this snake is harmless, it may bite and even vibrate its tail like a rattlesnake if harassed. Unfortunately, many people often mistake this harmless beauty for the venomous copperhead and needlessly kill them.
