Snakes. Just the thought of our reptilian neighbors is enough to give most people a good case of the creeps. But as naturalist Okefenokee Joe explains in this quirky program, snakes are more interesting than lethal. From the tiny, cobra-wanna-be hognose snake to the well-named coachwhip to the dangerous water moccasin, Okefenokee Joe explores the world of Georgia’s serpents through demonstrations, stories and even his own songs.

Okefenokee Joe, aka Dick Flood, is a country music singer/songwriter, a professional naturalist and an ardent environmentalist.
