:I am trying to collect some data on instances of snake folklore in the US from hobbyist and breeders for a project at my university. I would appreciate if any of you could post any samples you have come across in your years of experience.
:An example of snake folklore would be the belief that snakes must coil to strike, or that snakes have "slimy" skin. Any stories, song, food, religious practices, etc., that would concern snakes also counts.
:Meanwhile, I am off to research at the library. :)
:I appreciate your help!

I used to reside in Florida[ST-PETE] to be exact. But now I am in Kentucky,I moved here because all of my family is here and they all went to U.K where I currently go and I am getting ready for vet school in South America. Sinse most of my family are from a small town.They always tell ole wives tails.As an avid reptile lover as well as other animals.The first thing I did was ask questions on where to find them.They ended up trying to tell some crazy stories,Like snakes would bite their tails and roll down hills to scar people,an during the later part of summer that snakes where blind and more apt to bite people,and some snakes could interbreed because they stay in the same dens during the winter[like copperheads breading with garter snake.I dont know if this is what you where looking for,but I will ask some of the older people around here tomorrow.If this is te kind of stuff you are looking for e-mil me
