    The sooner the president realizes that Ryan is an establishment swamp dwelling snake...that's going to suck him down into the swampy quicksand and destroy his chances of enacting HIS agenda the better off he and we will be. Ryan represents the enemy within! Trump won the election already! Now it's his duty is to change gears, uphold the constitution, drain the swamp and MAGA. Quit screwing around with unwanted, unpopular, unsustainable, unconstitutional health care schemes. Push for and accept nothing less than a full repeal on Obamacare and then get to work enacting the rest of HIS MAGA agenda!! And...

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Anna McConnaughy was flying to Alaska's largest city when the announcement came over the intercom: a passenger on a previous flight had brought a pet snake on board. The passenger had gotten off the plane. The snake had not. "The pilot came, and said, 'Guys, we have some loose snake on the plane, but we don't know where it is,'" McConnaughy said Tuesday. Unlike the movie "Snakes On A Plane," this one wasn't venomous. Mostly, it was sleepy. A little boy, one of seven passengers on the Ravn Alaska commuter flight Sunday from the Alaska village of...

Field arrived to find the python in the midst of eating a possum, which it had about halfway into its mouth. "As you can see it's already got the front shoulders down and we're already half-way down the body,...

    Warning: This post contains graphic language and snakes. Next time you're trying to convince a newly goth 17-year-old not to get their ears gauged, why not tell them tale of one Ashley Glawe, a Portland resident with ear gauges and a pet python who recently became internet famous for getting her python lodged in her earlobe. Apparently, Glawe and her pet snake Bart were just hanging out, as snakes and humans do, when Bart slithered his way through the hole in her ear. I'll wait while you scream into a bag for ten minutes. Turns out Bart was hanging out...

Irula tribesmen are well-known in southern India for their snake-catching. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission hopes they'll reveal something that has long eluded researchers: a reliable way to track and spot the tan, splotchy snakes that all but disappear in the Everglades. One of the commission's exotic species experts, Kristen Sommers, said in a statement Monday that the state hopes the tribesmen can teach people in Florida some...

    What Judas snakes, snake-sniffing dogs and even hunters from around the globe have struggled to accomplish may finally be pulled off by a pair of singing snake catchers from India: solving the riddle for finding Burmese pythons in Florida's Everglades. In just two weeks this month, the two tribesmen from Southern India, working with theUniversity of Florida, caught 14 pythons. That included a monster 16-foot female holed up in the ruins of the old Nike missile base on Key Largo. Irula trackers and biologists discovered this 16-foot female python, along with three other snakes, holed up in a 27-foot long,...

According to professional snake catcher Barry Goldsmith, a woman in Melbourne found a tiger snake intertwined with the tinsel on her Christmas tree on Sunday morning. “She’s didn’t panic, she just took a photo and sent it to the snake catcher, me, and 20 minutes later I had the little bugger in a bag,” Goldsmith wrote on...

    This clown’s 15 minutes of fame are about up. So he’s making the most of it. After tomorrow he will just be known as the crazy liar who voted against Trump after he pledged to support him. Chris Suprun is one of 38 Texas electors. He recently went public with his decision to go against the will of the people of Texas; he will not be honoring his pledge to vote for President Elect, Donald Trump. Chris Suprun has taken quite a beating on social media by Americans who are outraged at his decision to go rogue. There was even...

    An enthusiastic House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) told a news conference on Wednesday, “Donald Trump pulled off an amazing political feat, and he deserves tremendous credit for that. It helped us keep our majorities, but it also showed the country that people don’t like the direction we were going. We need to change direction.“And what I’m excited about is, we in Congress, along with our nominee who is now the president-elect, offered a very specific and clear and coherent agenda on which direction we should take the country, and that is now the direction we are going to go. And...

    A snake this large is a clear and present danger to pets and small children.  While most snakes can be dispatched with a shovel or hoe, I would not want to attempt that with this python.  It might take offense. A firearm is a stand off weapon that allows you to apply deadly force at a distance.  A picture with the article shows the python was shot in the head, killing it quickly and humanely.The snake was a surprise for the teen who discovered it. From kfor.com:“I come outside, and the snake is literally slithering in our yard, and...

    Here's a story from one of the angler's on his experience shooting water moccasins with the .410 load. While out fishing with his brother-in-law, snakes were everywhere swimming right up to within a few feet of us to check us out, heads above the water the entire time and not even remotely afraid. Given that I live about 100 yards from the pond, and I'm not a fan of water moccasins (which I'm pretty sure is what these were, because most harmless water snakes swim with their heads down and shy away from disturbances), I ran back to the house...

Officials say about a dozen of the reptiles were poisonous snakes. Firefighters had the blaze under control within an hour, but they couldn't enter the home while deadly snakes were potentially on the loose.

    As the dust settled from the fiery rules meeting at the 2012 Republican National Convention in Tampa, the leading storyline that emerged was that establishment forces had once again quashed insurgent outsiders by instituting two critical changes to the way the GOP nominates its presidential candidate. One new rule cracks down on delegates who are inclined to peel away from the electoral outcome in their state, a direct response to the rabble-rousing supporters of former Rep. Ron Paul. The other rule allows the Republican National Committee to change a certain set of rules between conventions with a three-fourths vote of...
