O

Ophidiophobia - the fear of snakes

Since there are zillions of snakes in the world - these are a couple lovely Michigan species. 

 Eastern Garter Snake
My mom would swear this guy was 40 feet long 
and just ate a horse!

 Blue Racer

 Northern Water Snake

 Smooth Green Snake
OK - this is beautiful!  Look at that color!

 Eastern Massasauga Rattlesnake
Michigan's only venomous snake
It is of "special concern" status, 
on the verge of being an endangered species,
 due to wetland habitat loss & evil people.
