One Big Happy (10/20/10)

Snakes are mean or, at the very least, unpredictable. But how they react to provocation isn’t particularly hard to describe. Depending on the snake, it might slither away through the grass, lunge at the finger of its antagonist, or rise up eerily from a coiled position. It might focus its eyes, bear its fangs, or stick out its forked tongue But can you blame snakes, especially captive snakes, for being grumpy? If I were trapped in a glass box with a small amount of stale water and a painted backdrop, I would have a short tempter, too. And if someone started tapping said box, I’m sure I’d make a face.
