Thanks for the info, Steph. I really appreciate. When I saw the name Sitka, I thought of Alaska! Hahaha. Seriously, I really appreciate it. Can always count on you. :)

I found the link to the article Tony. Here ya go Mike.

@Mike. Nope. It was the picture on an article about an area in Bolivia that is one of the most ecologically diverse places on the planet,and how over 100 species of plants and animals are endangered in this one area alone. Scary. The South American forests have been called the lungs of the planet, and if we continue to abuse them, to paraphrase a saying from the Vietnam war, it will not be healthy for children or other living things.

The sika deer, Cervus nippon, also known as the spotted deer or the Japanese deer, is a species of deer native to much of East Asia, and introduced to various other parts of the world. Previously found from northern Vietnam in the south to the Russian Far East in the north,[1] it is now uncommon in these areas, excluding Japan, where the species is overabundant.[2] Its name comes from shika (鹿?), the Japanese word for "deer".

Some ranchers here in Texas have this deer on their ranch along with other exotic animals. I've seen them. Very beautiful!

I know Mike -- so I'll answer that.

Yes it's rear-fanged.

That's a great picture of the snake.

Thank you so very much!
