31 - A Perch of Birds - Bob Myers W/ The International Rattlesnake Museum

Rattlesnakes, their mythos, their reality and their beauty. We sit down with the amazing Bob Meyers with the Rattlesnake Museum in Albuquerque's famous Old town district. Bob's ran a beautiful, educational and very eclectic museum to showcase, entertain and educate the masses of the world. We talk about the ins and outs of rattlesnake's their husbandry, behavior, and even their misleading legends that we attempt to debunk and set straight in the podcast. We are on location at the beautiful Rattlesnake Museum itself sitting amongst 30+ rattlesnakes that Bob expertly cares for alongside many amazing exhibits like a full size Hippo skull, a shrine to the great Crocodile Hunter himself, and even a wall of Rattlesnake or reptile themed beverages and much much more.
