Poisonous Snakes

Many people are afraid of snakes.  We go looking for them (well, not all of us).  In 2005, despite a lot of hard looking, we only got a look at one poisonous snake, and it was a quick look at hat - and not everyone saw it.  In 2007, we had better luck.  We saw 4 species of poisonous snakes, and we got really good looks at 3 of them.
