This week we had Mrs. Jan Kent from our very own CSU Oxbow Meadows. She brought some friends with her. She brought a shell of a tortoise and a California King Snake. If you want to go see the tortoises, you need to hurry up. They will only be here for a limited time. As she was on air she said the California King eats other snakes, particularly venomous. If you all didn’t know, I am highly scared of snakes, especially after watching movies like Anaconda and Snakes On a Plane. California King Snakes have teeth, but only bite when they feel threaten.
After the show, I wanted to semi-conquer my fear of snakes, so I decided to hold him. DJ Chip was taking a video, which I didn’t know, of me conquering my fear. I felt so proud of myself to conquer my fear, especially in an atmosphere that is geared towards news and not wild life. I have experienced and learned a lot here, but I am most proud of this moment because it was a personal victory that I can check off my bucket list.
If you all would like to go to Oxbow Meadows to see some wild life, they are located at 3535 South Lumpkin. RD. They are open Tuesday-Friday 9:00am-4:00pm and Saturday 10:00am-6:00pm. Admission is free.
