Crew meeting today was at McCormick's Creek State Park. We had a program on feeding critters. The naturalist fed a good-sized snapping turtle a bunch of little fishies. Then she brought out a cute little garter snake and fed it worms. Julie looked away. Then she brought out her nine-year-old black rat snake, just for show. It was a tossup which was more fascinating, snake behavior or mom behavior. Or maybe it's just that biblical thing, you know, the enmity between the Serpent and the Woman? You be the judge.
