Defenders of Wildlife

Why is it ugly?

My store of how my eyes have been opened about the majesty of all wildlife.

I was out with my cousin walking along our creek one day when I came across a black rat snake. I started to yell for him to kill it. But he asked me why, do you think its going to hurt us. No I answered. Then do you want to eat it he asked. YUCK no way, soon came out of my mouth. Then why would I want to destroy it, he asked. My answer was because its ugly. Then He asked my to be quite and watch it for awhile, I must have stared at it for five minutes. That day when I was 7 was the last day I have seen snakes our any animal as ugly, infact sankes are my favort animals.
