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.

 Venomous Snakes 

Venomous Snakes

Georgia is home to many differnt snakes but only 6 are venomous.

All of the snakes pictured below except for the coral snake are pit vipers. Some common characteristics of Georgia's pit vipers is that they all have pits on each side of their head located in between each eye and nostril. These pit vipers also have eliptical pupils similar to a cats pupil. However, in low light, their pupils can dilate making them appear round. Pit vipers are heavy bodied snakes meaning that they are thicker than most non-venomous snakes of the same length. The pit vipers also have triangular shaped heads as do many non-venomous snakes. On the under side of the tail of a non-venomous snake, the scales are divided into two rows. A venomous snake has one row of scales underneath the tail. So, many factors have to be met in order to determine venomous from non-venomous. Never use just one trait to identify a snake. Using pattern, along with geographical location and other visible traits the snake displays offers a much more reliable way to identify it.
