About 90% of sane, smart people will answer that a bear would win that fight.
But these are the reactions I have when I see either;
Beth when a bear is seen “SQUEE it’s so cute”
Beth when a snake is seen *blood curdling scream*
I realize I should probably get my priorities straight. Especially after a friend, her husband and I were hiking along the Cecil Lake road (after viewing a bear on the trail, prior to the trek). My friend saw a snake, pointed and screamed so I would see it, and I joined the scream. Her husband’s reaction was “When there’s a bear around… don’t scream about a teeny little snake”
…. duly noted.
