Look out Jeff Corwin!

Scott has a huge affinity for all things reptilian. He loves to catch lizards and even baby snakes. But last week, he went well beyond that...and caught THIS:



Yes, this is a 3 1/2 foot long Black racer. We have several black racers that live around our yard. They are NOT tame snakes, nor can you really even raise them to be tame, and they are typically very fast, (hence the name "racer") but apparently it was cloudy and cool enough that this one was not quick enough to escape my determined 10 year old. Scott held him for a few minutes, I snapped photos for posterity, and we let the snake go.
Pin It!

He is crazy! I can't believe that he is so fearless when it comes to reptiles. Has he ever been bitten?
