    They are not just snakes. They're garter snakes.

    I have a question.
    I have been watching the "Snake Salvation" documentary on National Geographic. With out passing judgement on the people involved. Someone tell me why the handlers don't get bitten on a regular basis. What is going on that limits the bites? It seems to me that they would get bit every time they pick one up?

    It's pretty simple really. They don't take care of the snakes. If you look closely at their favorite ones to use, they are in a terribly weakened state, unhealthy and cold. Half of them probably couldn't bite if they wanted to. Theyre too weak and cold. I contacted them actually. They have concerns about collecting to replace the ones they've killed but have no interest in actually taking care of the snakes so they won't have to be replaced, which is what I suggested. They prefer them weak, cold, and one foot in the grave, so to speak. Those snakes simply can't fight back. They starve and neglect the fight right out of them. I was watching one of their favorites named "big momma" and she can't even hold her head up, let alone strike. She's too damned weak.
