Florida Wildlife Show at Gatorland - March 11, 2015

Before the show I noticed some props on stage that were boxes marked "Venomous".   I thought to myself, "they would never bring out venomous snakes during a show; I don't think I have ever seen that before."  But, this is Gatorland...

also, a non-venomous snake and not-too-venomous spider
Also saw some natural venomous snakes in the swamp walk.  That is the safest place to get up close to a cottonmouth (water moccasin).  Although in the show, they said it was a myth that they were very aggressive.  I will have to check that out.  I think the ones in the show had been "chilled" pre-show because the ones in the wild were much more active.
