That is, it you cnulci use a bit of pin money and aren't already scared to death. An 8-foot hale and hearty Florida rattler, for instance, will net you $300, but i£ he's only 7 feet the price drops to a mere ?15 he is much bore plentiful. And for R 7-foot northein. or western rattler, the price is ?1 a pound. So says "Ross Allen, Florida lierpe- tologist who makes a business of j catching snakes and selling not only ' the live ones but thing's he can make [ of them. I Allen's principal maikct for non- j poisonous snakes is with carimals ! and circuses in this country and ! Canada, the snakeman buying dens that cost from $15 to S150 a den. They buy a den on an average o£ every tuo weeks because of the high mortality of snakes in such work. A few showmen use poisonous snakes, Allen says, but not many. i The next biggest market takes in j zoos and museums. Then, Allen hays, | there are some 5000 individual eoileo jtors of reptiles who have private | zoos in their homes and they are ; always in the market. i Aside from selling the live article, [Allen- disposes 'of virtually every} thing In a rattlesnake, for Instance, I except the whirr of its rattle: Venom for serumi, skin for leather'articles, heads dried and varnished for curios j or -ornaments or preserved for mu- I seums, rattlos for curios, meat proc' essed and canned as a table delicacy.
