Fauna IV (if they bite you)

About 5 or 10 miles from the beach is a wonderful little serpentarium (surely that should be herpetarium? but perhaps that would be less understandable to people) which we visited last year: it was a wonderful find: not cheap, at around $10 per adult (yes, I know, big city prices, blah blah blah, but this is not big city, and the aquarium is only $14 for an adult: and it is much bigger than the snake museum): anyway, last year when we went there with LOML's parents, we had a wonderful time: they have a display of snakes inside: outside they have snake handler give a 20-30 minute presentation: they feed alligators: they have a lot of wonderful turtles" and they really feel like they care. Oh, and a really nice, reasonably priced gift shop.

The downside? Skibo fell asleep on my shoulder during the snake handler's presentation, and stayed that way for ages. So I got to sit there holding him while everyone else went off to look at snakes and turtles and gators, oh my!

Still, at least I'd seen it last year.

Yours, hiss,
