    That kinda gives the term "snake pit" a whole new meaning.

    Anderson and Erica...love the show, but you BOTH mispronounced the word "primer" for this segment. Unless someone was getting ready to paint the snake, it should have been pronounced with a short i, and not a long i. Tsk, tsk.

    Oh boy that's the same snake that I had wrapped around my neck at the OC Fair a few weeks ago. Gorgeous animal and @ Michelle – they're not slimy at all – rather smooth, cool and slightly warm.
