Snakes and spiders were the topic of discussion this week as Ken Alfieri of Alligator Adventure brought some creepy-crawly show-and-tell items to a safety class at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center.  The city's Risk Management division sponsors the class every few years for staff members who work outdoors and might encounter snakes, spiders and other critters during the course of their jobs.  About 200 city employees attended the class, which began with a video about copperheads, rattlesnakes, coral snakes and cotton mouth moccasins.  Alfieri then brought out the real thing, explaining what to look for and how to avoid contact with dangerous snakes, as well as which snakes are good neighbors.  He said that 70 percent of snake bites are attributed to people either trying to catch or kill a snake, so avoidance is the best policy.  At show's end, he brought out Alligator Adventure's large albino boa constrictor, which is NOT native to our area.
