I had to kill a little one the other day. Too many kids around here to let it go.

Besides, rattlers get huge here.

'Saving a turtle'.  Sure.  That'll work as good as any other excuse.

No way a 24 year old in Florida would have decided to play with the itty bitty little rattlesnake and have to figure out a reasonable cover story for how he got bit.

"The objective of the Venom Response Team is not only to save lives, but also to save limbs and tissue," said Miami-Dade Fire Rescue spokeswoman Michelle Fayed.

I very much admire these goals. Thanks, VRT, hope I never need you!

I'm conflicted. Do I praise subby for knowing "venomous" vs. "poisonous" or condemn him for the redundancy?

Bendal: Ever seen a nonvenomous rattlesnake?


That was kind of the point.
