I do, and a Fierce Snake as well.

all kidding aside I have kept and maintained Hots (venomous) but it really isn't my forte, the whole dying thing is kind of going against where I want to be; living. I have a grand respect for them and never became complacent or took them for granted as a handler...but I have seen what they are capable of, no thanks.

Excellent shots

I stayed with some friends in South Africa a while back and john was telling me about the young Green Mambas he found in the woodpile....*Surprize!!* He said he grown pretty complacent around the snakes and went to grab this one by the tail and flick his out of there...... He showed me his thumb the tip, top joint was grey and like an old piece of chewing gum. Said the pain was so intense and what saved him from worse, like death, was that he grabbed his thumb so hard with the pain that it stopped the blood and venim getting into his arm. He really didn't feel well for a while though.

Pretty things, I like them but limit my grabs to the garter snakes here.

These are stunning. 50mm macro eh? I think if were me, I would have been using a 70-300mm and cropped
