The young girl in black at WBIR with absolutely no fear of snakes
wanted her photo taken with our cornsnake, so we obliged.
Join me at Ijams Nature Center on Father's Day at 2 p.m. for another Family Adventure Sunday and learn the truth about the roughly 15 species of snake that live in East Tennessee. There's really nothing to be afraid of unless you are a mouse or mole.
We have no water moccasins in our waters. None. None. None. It's a myth. But we do have a brown water snake that eats small fish and tadpoles and both a kingsnake (eats other snakes) and a queensnake (eats aquatic life).
Snakes are all a part of nature's balance. They are benevolent creatures that simple want to be left alone to do their job.
On Sunday, we'll meet a few of the snakes that the education department care for and go on a nature walk to the Homesite and along the river to look for any signs of the snakes that live in our 317-acre nature center.
