“Fangs and Scales,” is basically a one-woman rescue operation run by Elloree resident Anne Kirby. It began when Kirby would assist turtles that were crossing the road.
“Then at about age 10 or 11,” she says, “I got into snakes.”
“A matter of preference,” she said. “Besides, snakes are easy to care for.”
Kirby recalls some of her earlier rescues.
Her first was about seven years ago when Kirby went to a flea market and came home with a ball python.
“This guy had a python and said that it ate frogs. They don’t. They only eat rodents. Obviously he didn’t know anything about snakes.”
She said, “Pythons are not a short-term commitment.”
