What prompts me to write this entry is an encounter last night with a smallish timber rattler. The Galapagos Islands is the most pristine and intact ecological system remaining in the world.
Imagine a place where hundreds of iguanas lay on rocks in the sun, sea lions slumber on the beach, birds nest on the ground and giant tortoises bathe in muddy pools. I went outside to gather eggs and noticed the chickens standing around something staring at it intently. In the Galapagos Islands, this is not a stretch of the imagination, however, all of these animals are threatened by the thousands of street dogs and cats living in Galapagos.


Second, in 7000 snake bites, from all kinds of snakes (per year), there are only 5.5 fatalities in the US.
The statistics show that most of the people bitten by any snake are male, and in their 20s.
Formed by underwater volcanoes millions of years ago, the islands lie 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador. This compares to deaths from wasp and bee stings at 30-120 a year, dog attacks at 10-20, lightening at 75 to 300 deaths, and heat exhaustion at 175-200 deaths a year. Visit Snakes of Arkansas for more information, it is a superb site with much concise, factual information.


13 large islands and more than 100 smaller islands and islets are home to nearly 9,000 species, most found nowhere else in the world. I have a fair number of snakes around my home that serve useful purposes like rodent control, and they don't bother me a bit. On the Snakes of Arkansas website (big time snake fans), they note that they have never been bitten or even struck by timber rattlers.
