"Nightmares"? Really?

Nice to see you've gone the way of Animal Planet and the Discovery Channel. Shame that you can't science anymore without sensationalism. Pander pander pander.

Sensationalism at it's worst. Cribo's are incredibly placid snakes, and are in no way 'nightmares' or 'killers'. The only reason this one event took the one strike at him that it did is because he wrenched it out of it's burrow. And we wonder why reptiles, and particularly snakes, get such a bad reputation with most people. National Geographic, this completely disgusts me.
