Parassinikkadavu Snake Park
, near Kannur (Kerala), Indiachristine
: We went out tonight with friends to see the new groaner of a movie called "Snakes on a Plane
". And it lived up to its title and little else, but a lot of laughter. All in good fun, right?
Still feeling a bit squeamish from seeing all those slithering creatures, I couldn't resist pulling this shot out of our archives and team it with a "tongue in cheek" title.
I saw this cold-blooded creature at a small snake park we visited while traveling in India. What was notable about it was that the snakes were mainly built on donation. And by donation I mean most were snakes caught
terrorizing the locals. This particular snake, as memory recalls, was a viper.
Moral of the story? If you're going to hike in Indian backwoods, don't forget the anti-venom. Eesh.
