No need to kill these magnificent creatures. I believe It's actually a federally protected species, but most folks kill them anyway out of fear and ignorance. Sad sad sad. I observed one -albeit a hatchling- from just a few feet away (see my page!) and it was so gorgeous. Just sat there sunning itself, minding its own business.

So sad to see this beautiful and beneficial snake in such condition. People are truly ignorant to all of the benefits and protection these highly evolved provide.
