Snakes are misunderstood. They are not evil or dangerous animals. Like all pets, they only step out of line if you do something wrong.

I have almost reached my goal on Kickstarter to get Volume 1 in print! Help me get there here!

It’s like a little wyvern.

Some so-called common knowledge isn't, and the business of ascribing evil to snakes and women seems to be almost an artifact of an ancient conflict between two conflicting cultures in the eastern Mediterranean, a way for one of them to allude to the other in a way that avoids addressing the main issue. I'm thinking of things like the Minoan images of a topless snake priestess representing one side and the story of Eve and the snake in the garden of Eden as representing the other side.

Me? I like snakes; I live at the edge of a primary habitat for the Pacific Coast Rattlesnake and appreciate the way they help control the population of vermin. I live in an urban haven for raptors, coyotes, foxes, and even bobcats as well.

It sounds like you live near some beautiful nature and YES. Without snakes, we would be overrun with vermin. And considering they're immune to many of the diseases they carry, they are a necessary part of nature.

I do - eight blocks from the Pacific Ocean and two blocks south of Golden Gate Park, the western reaches of which harbor a good deal of the wildlife I mentioned. I've actually *seen* bobcats in my yard, and I venture into the park occasinally when the raptors and Great Blue Herons are hatching their young.

That sounds absolutely breathtaking.

Oh, yeah? Have I mentioned the time we were sailing the scow schooner Alma[0] off Fort Mason (San Francisco Bay) when a grey whale swam under the boat and surfaced close enough that we could smell its fishy breath?

Well, some of it is bait - the best is too good not to share.

I have never wanted to pet a snake more then I do now and I love snakes they are just tiny wyverns without without fire breath and longevity.

Funny you should mention that because cobracoatls are actually vegetarians! So their breath tends to smell nice.
