Mike Clark ~ 02/18/1950 - 10/10/2010  We Love You Daddy!

A righteous man cares for
the needs of his animal...
Proverbs 12:10

All Snake Killers

God has made us different,
he made us so unique.
We slither on the ground,
we have no hands and feet.
Though you find us scary,
or maybe just plain weird,
our intentions are not to hurt you
or cause you such great fear.
Our venom's not meant for humans
but to help us when we eat.
So, please stop the senseless killing
before we're all extinct.
We're not saying you have to love us
or tell us we're the best.
God's the one who created us.
So, treat us with respect.

Fears are educated into us
and can, if we wish,
be educated out.
-Karl A. Merringer

The snake is an animal.
It has a backbone and a heart.
It has red blood.
It drinks water and eats food.
It breathes air and feels fear
just like every other
animal in the world.
And, it's in a body that's
the hardest thing
for the average
person to understand.

The Midland Brown Snake is very common in many suburban areas throughout Georgia. They can often be abundant in flower beds and shrubbery around houses even more so than in rural areas. Many people actually mistake this snake for the venomous copperhead. The midland brown is a very mild mannered snake and usually attempts to escape first and foremost when encountered but may even play dead or flatten its body to appear larger. If picked up the snake may release a fowl smelling musk but will not bite you. These snakes are many times brought as gifts by cats and dogs to their unwary owners after a day of stalking in the flower bed. As all Georgia's non-venomous snakes, the midland brown is protected due to their assistance in pest control. Their diet consists of earthworms, slugs, snails insects and spiders.
