i dont think you could be any more right. BUT! (dont you hate those buts) what about cities that have already banned snakes. i know my citiy has banned anything out of the familily boid. i accualy was going to see if i could talk to my old princible from my old elementry school to see if i could give a presentation on snakes. i would LOVE to do it, it would be fun not only for me but for the childrin and it would give the teachers a little break from there high stress job. but sence my snakes are illegal i dont want to rist looseing them. it is hard to educate when the tools are illegal.
