Adam, one of our aims at Project Noah is Education, & that includes dispelling the myths a lot of people believe about creatures such as snakes. It saddens me when I hear people say "there's no good snake except a dead snake!" which unfortunately I hear a lot here in Tennessee. The majority of snakes in the US at least are non venomous, & the few venomous species are rarely aggressive towards people unless they feel threatened, & even then will often give a dry bite. Snakes carry out an important function of keeping down rodents & many snakes are actually protected by state law!
Hopefully as you see & learn more about these amazing creatures you may even start to appreciate them! :)

I can't figure out how to search a particular person or snake!

Nice! I love the scale pattern on him! My first spotting when I started project Noah was a big old bull snake. Check it out!
