>>No i was not trying to troll sorry just making a point. The gator, the panther, the bald eagle all apex predators. The alagator snapper also. The otter. But not an indigo snake. The burmese python is. The nile monitor isn't.


Well your writing prowess is very condescending toward these animals as if you are trying to start a "my snake can beat up your snake" competition.

You come off very bitter about this, and I think any of your points could be up for argument for and against. Seems like a pointless witch hunt to simply make Dry lovers feel degraded.

http://markgelbart.wordpress.com/2013/05/01/the-orianne-indigo-snake-preserve/
"A species of indigo snake native to Central America was observed feeding on a boa constrictor, then on a jumping viper before the former was digested".

Not saying one is tougher than the other, or the absolute validity of the claim above, but arguments could be made back and forth all day of who beats who in a fight with lots of animals we respect as predators. You never know what circumstance is going to cause an animal one day to triumph, and then the next day to fail. I just don't see the point of coming in here simply to degrade. Why not just appreciate these amazing animals instead.

I also don't think the veteran guys in here are going to feel the dire need to defend these animals against the old "Dry's are just wimpy giant garter snakes" argument, so I am going to let this be my last response on this and enjoy the animals I STILL feel so blessed to work with. All the best!
