The main room of the Thomson-McDuffie County Library was recently filled with snakes as a renowned handler showcased serpents indigenous to Georgia.
Snake Master Steve Scruggs wowed the 305 people attending the library’s final summer program called “Dig Into Reading” on July 23.
The children watched in amazement as Scruggs allowed volunteers to hold the non-venomous snakes, but he also warned the audience of the dangers of the venomous snakes found around McDuffie County and across the CSRA. He warned the children multiple times to “leave that snake alone” if they see one in the wild.
