    I hate snakes but I have to admit I was fascinated with the show at Gatorland that they did with rattlesnakes.

    I've always been fascinated by snakes and florida has some really great ones!

    I've seen a few shows, mostly pretty professional and had a couple of close, scary calls :lol: mainly at a couple of less formal places in the Everglades.

    True....I have a photo of DH with a snake wrapped around his neck from Gatorland. I was fine at Gatorland - until they brought out the spider :exit:

    I've been by the reptile place on 192. It's old looking and shabby, but if you are into snakes it would be worth a visit I guess. :lipwobble:
