    We had a really fun snake show at the Sawyer Free Children's Library yesterday. Full house, lots of enthusiasm. Thanks to our volunteers:  Colleen Anderson, Keith Bertone, Steve McCrory, Ann Byers, Mason and Karen Camille, and Victoria Rolf. Thanks to Christy Rosso for putting out all the snake books, getting us a huge crowd and her lovely introduction.

    Thanks also to the person who left two reptile books on the windshield of White lightning.

    Sunday afternoon I got a call from Melanie at the Sea Urchin store in Gloucester. There was a snake behind the building. Someone told her it was a rattlesnake. She emailed me a photo. Carpet python from Australia. Evidently somebody's pet got loose. Snake was gone by the time I got there. Melanie called again on Monday. Snake was back. Colleen and I went over and got it. Anybody need a carpet python?

    Sunday morning I took Maxine, our boa constrictor and a real fan favorite, to the New England Wildlife Center in South Weymouth. Most of a tumor was surgically removed from her back by Dr. Greg Mertz and his very capable staff. We'll go back next Sunday for a followup. She's hanging out on her climbing branch right now and seems to be recovering nicely.

    And... we had a great snake show on Saturday at the Great Meadows National Wildlife Sanctuary in Sudbury MA for RiverFest.  Just after arriving at the sanctuary, I noticed these two sketchy looking characters hanging around by the park entrance. Turns out it was Norman Williams and Gerry Swislow with whom I graduated from Rich Central High School in Olympia Fields Illinois in 1970.  What a surprise. So... we made them help out with the show along with Adam Boronsky and Colleen Anderson. Great crowd. Fun time.
