I'd like to think we are all old enough to have passed our expert stage. 
Far away in a place (thanks Susan) we had a big snake experience one 
night in a bunker. It was bayoneted (actually butt stroked) and passed 
around to inspect. Being a young expert who grew up in snake country 
(AZ) I assured everyone it was harmless. It wasn't, but turned out to be 
a Krait. No one ever returned to ask my expert advice again. :-P

Now Ric's snake looks serious enough to give it a wide berth.
