Snakes and a Spider!!

While on a day trip into the mountainsI I flagged down this local man I saw riding a bicycle and carrying snakes.

He'd been out collecting these and was heading home.

When asked, he said he eats the snakes.

After learning the snakes were not poisonous, my son and his girlfriend hung a snake or two around their necks for photos.

The spider he brought out of a little bag later, after asking us to be very still.

Yikes!

" Dominican tarantula known as the Cacata is not an easy crawly to see. They usually don't live in the cities and they usually only come out at night."
