I uploaded my reptile photos in 2008 so that was when we had an exhibition of reptiles in the town of Biel in Switzerland: at last something completely different for a few photos. Snakes and lizards do not bother me as I knew they would be kept behind glass. There were a few large speimens laying around on the floor, but they probably did not have a cage big enough to keep them in. They were only boa constrictors and used to having the run of the place in any case.
Graceful? Yes they are. No noisy feet stamping around, just gentle graceful sliding motions.You have to love them, as long as you do not have to live with them. I think we only have a couple of poisonous snakes indiginous to Switzerland where I live, and they stay up in the mountains.
As W.C.Fields said “Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite and furthermore always carry a small snake” .
