I'm not a snake guy. Never have been. And I'm pretty sure I have Raiders of the Lost Ark to blame. I'm cool with that. I feel the same way about bugs (thanks, Temple of Doom). Come to think of it, Indiana Jones' phobias really did a number on me. Damn you, Spielberg!

Now, while I may not adore cuddly reptilians, there are a number of folks who do. They're called 'Herpers'. My friend and 13 Hours director Dav Kaufman is one, and he recently completed a documentary on the subject, aptly titled Herpers. The doc features interviews with reptile lovers and collectors around the country, including G 'n R guitar legend Slash. Pretty sweet.

Check out their new website HERE. You can watch the trailer, learn more info about herpers, and pre-order the DVD.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to save Sean Connery from a tank.
