Some people say we should embrace our fears. I’m doing exactly that by writing this post. Snakes totally creeped me out. When I was a kid, I couldn’t even look at a picture of one.

Thieves in California stole a man’s duffel bag and obviously didn’t know what was inside. It contained snakes, for pythons, to be exact. There was also a rare lizard in the bag.

The owner, Brian Gundy, is a snake breeder. He had just given a presentation at a local library. I can’t understand why anybody would snatch a bag without knowing what’s inside to begin with. I guess this proves the old adage, "Crime doesn’t pay."
