I get a little creeped out by snakes, not nearly as bad as I used to be...

I now work in the Science dept at a university, and two of our professors have snakes and lizards in their offices. Yeah... We get entertained at feeding time around here!

You/Hunter took lots of great pictures of the incident!
Stephanie! Put your forehead on your computer screen right now so I can reach out and feel whether or not you have fever. You've got to or else you wouldn't be talking out of your head like that. Snakes scare the beejeebers out of me!

I'm pretty darn scared of snakes. But, I can look at them if they are in a glass cage. That doesn't bother me. One time, when I was hopped up on migraine medicine, I actually touched the very end of a boa they had out at Rafiki's Planet Watch (now Conservation Station) at the Animal Kingdom. I'm serious! I had a really really bad migraine and had taken several migraine pills that day. I'm sure that's the only reason I went outside of my comfort zone like that.

Would it help if I amended that to say I love non-venomous snakes? If that happened with a venomous snake I would have been on the other side of the store, using my zoom to get pictures but staying FAR away!

But yeah, I do like the non-venomous snakes!

I don't suppose you would have wanted an invite to my oldest daughter's 11th birthday in 2010...here was the guest of honor at her Snakes and Reptiles themed party...



She wants to be a veteranarian!

Maybe the snake needed a Minnie Mouse T-Shirt or something?

I've had snakes slither into my office. I work off the road from some marsh land so last summer I had my boss put up a screen door!

Oh.....my....goodness Lisa! Really....a SNAKE!?!! My biggest fear is snakes followed closely behind by birds.

I would have been OUT of that store so fast! I'm glad you had Hunter to document the event for you. Where were you during all the snake shenanigans?

And...that snake is HUGE!! GOOD GRIEF!!!

Oh heck no! Nope! No way! Are you kidding me?

You can bring on any kind of bug, lizard, bird (hear that Missy?), rat or pretty much any other animal and I'm fine with it. Snakes? (where's that I'm shaking all over smiley?)

It was looking a little naked wasn't it?

I'd have to have a screen door too. Thank goodness your boss was kind enough to put one in.

For part of the snake shenanigans, I was in line. For the others, I was standing in the circle of guests but far enough away that I could make a run for it if the snake came my way. I'd have been climbing some racks if I had to.

I stood around and watched while the Animal Control lady came but I sure kept my distance.

OK I should have known not to read the update, but I did and scared my kids have to death with my squealing. I even had one come in from outside to check on me. (Our bedroom windows open to the backyard so I wasn't squealing THAT loudly, but still.) So I shall repeat eeewwwww!
