Pittsburgh Pennsylvania Snake Situation: Just had to write in after I was teaching my 4 year-old how to recognize a coral snake and we did a Google image search. In the search, you don't see the description and the first thing she said was "Why does he have one on his face if it's dangerous?!!" I told her that sometimes people do dumb things they shouldn't, but it was surprising (later) to find out that the photo was from an animal control specialist. I actually really enjoyed going through the various photos and reading about your interest in snakes, and I was glad to hear the snake was dead (because even a baby coral snake can be deadly!) but it still seemed a little less professional. Not saying "take it down," but I did have to actually land on the page to read what the pic was all about...probably many people just see the image without your caption or don't take the time to look closely. Maybe adjust the caption so that at least you know it's dead just from the image? Like "I'm not drunk...this was a dead coral snake" or something? I loved the pic of the huge diamondback. That's one awesome snake. :-) It looked like even with the hook it would be within striking range but maybe it was the angle the pic was taken from? How much does a snake like that weigh?Anyway, it was nice to see someone discussing snake removal rather than killing them, but I just wanted to echo that the coral snake pic DOES get seen by kids and probably gives many of them the wrong idea. I used it as a teaching moment with my daughter, but probably she'll remember "a guy with a coral snake on his face" more than the photos of the snakes where I was trying to say "red yellow, kill a fellow." It was pretty dramatic. And we didn't click on the image together because I was sure the next pic would be "Guy dies with horrible face injury." Lol.
