Excerpt-

“The red spitting cobra just looked at me and stared. It was one foot away from my face and I had surprised it as much as it had surprised me. Everything about this morning was normal and mundane, but in this situation I found myself in, all was highly out of place.

Close calls were nothing new in my time dealing with reptiles and amphibians.  Some were more dangerous than others. I like to think I learned something from each one, but these are soulless and often unpredictable beings I deal with. Anything can happen.”

Mark Ferdinand lives on the South Texas coast with his wife, daughter and son. Fishing the surf, hunting, gardening, tiki carving, and DIY occupy his spare time.
