The interest m the unusual enterprise comes from visitors to the ranch averaging 100 to 200 during the weel-- and 1.000 on Sundays. Reptiles Arc Nervous When he first, started the ranch Evans allowed the public to view the pens, where he keeps thousands of the reptiles. But he lost hundreds of snakes, which are "highly nervous creatures" and can't take the stares of a sapin? public. Now Evans maintains a snake pit esoeeirtlh- for visitors, where some 25 to 50 rattlers are under the limelight for show-off purposes. Even so. the loss of snakes is -still large. Life in the pit virtually is a death sentence to the rattler, who will usually die within GO days after its contact with the curious public.

The snakes are fed live mice, as they like to kill their own food. When the rattlers get "fussy." a special meal of raw hamburger is provided. Revenue from the snakes is derived from four sources — meat, hide, oil and venom. Last y €ar ' .12.000 snakes were slaughtered "for market purposes, and this year Evans expects to kill twice that many. The average litter of the female rattler rims from five to a dozen, according to Evans, but last year one mother presented him with 64 offspring. The demand for rattlesnake -,- • - .x, Oi l<A f\t..

They can't, get insurance for their workers, the job being considered too dangerous by state authorities In milking the snake, Evans holds it back of the head, placing the fangs through a chamois covering a jar. Evans 1 22 years of handling snakes and dealing with curiosity seekers has brought him financial security and the habit of not asking too many quetsions.
