I was definitely not expecting to hold a snake today.
To learn how to shoot video, we filmed Cecil Schwalbe and his reptiles. First, he brought out a Western Diamondback Rattlesnake. He showed us how to move the snake with tongs and he allowed people to carry it. I was too scared to move the snake because I knew I would probably drop it. Although I did not move the snake, I held one that was not venomous. It was an interesting experience. I had held a snake before, but this snake was calm. The snake, named Smog, seemed to enjoy being held. Cecil also let us hold desert tortoises. They were probably my favorites because they fit in my hand.
Later on, we created an iMovie of the clips that we filmed. I was frustrated at first because I had
never worked with videos. As I worked on it, I began to enjoy putting everything together. I am happy with the results from the movie.
