I'm still wondering what you could be sued for, even if the unlikely bite were to happen. The snake we're talking about here could cause very little damage. I've been bitten by much bigger snakes and had a hard time pointing to where it got me a couple hours later. Do parents normally sue if their kid gets scratched by a cat or nibbled by a guinea pig? That's the degree of harm we're talking about with that snake. I think it would be hard to sue for that and win anything. Are they gonna sue for the cost of a band-aid and some polysporin?
I feel a little light headed... maybe you should drive...
