Snakes! Snakes! Snakes!

Dr. Chris Murdock, assistant professor of biology and molecular endocrinology at Jacksonville State University, spoke to the Jacksonville Garden Club Nov. 15 in the Fireside Room of the Community Center.

Dr. Murdock made a presentation of common lizards, turtles and snakes found in area gardens as well as other reptiles residents may encounter.

His live display of the California King Snake and Yellow Rat Snake, not native to this area, regaled the members of the club with some “snake handling” by several in the club.
