Andrew Durso has an amazing blog on snakes--
Andrew helps illuminate the role that snakes play, and how to share our ecosystem with snakes.  Snakes are solitary creatures, and are probably more numerous than you might think.  Andrew explains the difference between poisonous and venomous, and why we shouldn't be so afraid of snakes.
