    was a snake farm located between austin and san antonio.  

    it was run by a vietnam vet who had a doublewide mobile home full top to bottom of dangerous and non-dangerous snakes.

    i recall the death adder and enormous boa constrictor in a cage.

    at the end of the exhibits was a wishing well with a mess of rattlers on the bottom that would shake their rattles if you hit them in the head with one of the quarters you were encouraged to drop.  i still regret not buying any of the various snake skin items he had for sale in the "gift shop."

    Deserves it! I daresay he does. Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement. For even the very wise cannot see all ends. - Gandalf the Grey
