I saw a snake the other day while cruising around the pond at Richland College. I posted an image on our Facebook page. I’m not the only one — many of my Facebook associates have been posting snake photos, mostly harmless (helpful even) rat snakes, I think.

Check out the details of the python-breeding business in our 2015 feature story.
