Every venomous snake in the USA lives in Texas, apparently, alongside more than a hundred non-venomous and non-aggressive species. So for Texans it may be more important to know the difference than for the rest of us, whose experiences of poisonous reptiles are generally limited to court cases and tax inspections. Oh, and elections, obviously.
This site is a solid educational source of serpentine information, run by "Clint the Snake Man", who spends his time teaching the folks of Texas that snakes are people, too, and may be invited to parties. No, really, he takes the snakes in his collection out to kids parties almost every day of the year, and will even cater for adult snake parties, though I should say immediately that these aren't *those* kinds of adult parties, in case you were thinking what I was thinking.
The site asks, "what's more fun than getting your picture taken with a beautiful snake around your shoulders?", which is a good question even if not one you may be prepared to answer immediately. For the many people who are scared of snakes or find them very uncomfortable even to look at or think about, this helpful site might be a starting point to overcoming those fears.
It couldn't have been done in a more friendly, accessible way and leaves you almost itching to get that snake round your neck at your next office party. It'll be an improvement on the office manager you had to deal with last year and you won't have to cope with it looking smug at the coffee machine the following morning.
