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.

 Eastern Garter Snake 

The Eastern Garter Snake Thamnophis sirtalis

Not all garter snakes look like the one in the photo. This snake can vary in pattern and color. This snake usually has three stripes on top of a darker background color that run lengthwise down the body. The stripes can vary in color from yellow to green or brown. The under belly can also vary from yellow to white or a greenish color. Some specimens may also have a checkerboard pattern on the sides. Though this snake may sometimes bite when handled it is considered harmless to people. The eastern gater snake is many times found to be near water sources where it can find an abundance of fish and amphibians which are its primary food. This snake may also consume mice, other snakes, lizards and even small birds. The eastern garter snakes saliva is mildly toxic which helps in securing its meals. If a human is bitten they may experience a mild itch at the site of the bite. Baby garter snakes which look just like the adults, are born live in numbers of up to 100 at a time.
