Women and Snakes – February 5, 2013

Mandy Johnson – South Carolina

Mandy is a educator who brings her passion for all life including snakes to anyone she comes in contact with everyday.  As a kayak guide in the swamps and marshes of South Carolina, Mandy meets many “city folks” who have never seen a snake outside of a cage or book.  Her passion for snakes has brought her to catch snakes and introduce her clients to their wonderful natural history which helps dispel myths that snakes chase people and jump into their boats.  Mandy is also an excellent photographer and active Center for Snake Conservation member who freely shares her experiences with the CSC community.  As the kayak season begins, watch out for some of her amazing photos.  Here Mandy is pictured with a ratsnake and rainbow snake.
