Perhaps no other animals have been the object of so much fear, misinformation, and misunderstanding as snakes. Join Host Michael Skinner, long-time snake fan, for a look at the fascinating truth about these much maligned animals.

Joining researchers at the Savannah River Ecology Lab, Michael goes on a snake float and literally picks the water snakes off the overhanging limbs. "Why?" you might ask. To show you how to tell the difference between the harmless brown water snake and the poisonous cottonmouth.

Meet the snake researchers who will go a long way to help us all understand that snakes are our friends.
