Another fun fact; You can determine the gender of a snake by gently running your finger towards the base of their anal plate to see if their hemipenes 'pops' out.

Another related fun fact: Doing this may result in a painful bite from said snake which can be a real nuisance if it happens to be venomous!

That's a fact! I have a neighbor who started with one black & white Tom. Word must have gotten out, because now there's about 6 of different sizes over there. But there's a noticable lack of mice around, so what the heck. Plus the other neighbor's incredibly dim goldendoddle goes spastic when the cats mock him, so it's entertaining, too.

I'm not an uber driver. The uber MAN won't let you über with a 10 year old beat up regular cab Dodge Ram. And doesn't that just make you sad?

You'd think they would want to use a truck like that since it can carry more passengers in back and has the capability for quick pick up and drop off. It'd be great at the airport, too, for carrying oversized luggage.
