Luray Zoo and Dinosaur Park
May 10th, 2002
Return to Luray.
Hanging python at the real entrance.
These guys like being wet, but they aren't very dangerous.
This is the black mamba - the most dangerous snake in the world.
These are bearded lizards. They aren't very dangerous.
These guys are really dangerous.
This is a snapping turtle that could probably take my foot off. He or she is huge.
Horned viper bedded in sand. Also dangerous.
How hairy her legs are! All the better to tickle you with.
This is not the most dangerous snake in the world.
But we seemed to connect.
I did not use a flash with these pictures, and I did not tap on the glass, but this snake seemed to want to get to know me better.
It was an 'In Your Face' kind of snake.
I left feeling like I'd disappointed both of us not knowing how to dance, where we were both so willing.
