Jim Forbes introduced Captain Ray Cole from the Nacogdoches Fire Department who started a business of catching unwanted snakes and taking them where they will not bother people. He told us how to identify the 5 venomous snakes that are in East Texas . There are 250 species in the United States . Snakes have a purpose in our environment and should not be killed but removed by a professional to a place away from people. Some people enjoyed seeing and holding the snakes that are harmless.
