    Truth is stranger than fiction because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn?t.

    I look at it the same Beard as I've been a nature-animal lover since early childhood. Had a baby cayman when I was 6 (back when you could buy monkeys and shit). Raised a red tail b boa from baby to 6 foot. I never kill snakes cuz I prefer them over rodents

    Awesome, dude.
    I grew up always catching snakes and bringing them home, much to my mother's dismay, ha. It didn't help that my dad worked for the MS Dept of Wildlife Fisheries and Parks, and he was basically a Mississippi-Steve Irwin. In his office, he had a bank of aquariums with every snake indigenous to N.A., and an alligator pit outside for tourists to see. He would also take the snakes (and sometimes a baby alligator) to local k-12 schools for wildlife demos. I've always loved reptiles.

    Yep. Brought home snakes, turtles and bull frogs in Greenwood. Always loved frogs cuz it tells you the system is clean. Steve Irwin's death was one of the biggest TV gut punches I ever took.
