What Animals Make Me Nervous and Jumpy? #NaBloPoMo

Snakes definitely make me nervous and jumpy.  It doesn't matter what kind or what size. Snakes make me feel nervous and jumpy all the same.  Even so, I still can't resist a visit to our local Reptible Amphibian Discovery Zoo.  If you are ever in Owatonna, MN a visit to the RAD Zoo is a must. There you will find home to over 150 kinds of animals from all over the world exhibited in naturalistic recreations of their native environments. Gaze upon “Big Al” the monster 12 foot-long alligator and “Bella” the 14 foot-long python. They even have a snake of Justin Bieber's named, "Johnson". They, also, offer a daily “Everglades Encounter” show focusing on the animals of the Florida swamp.
