Rusty Scarborough with the Caddo Parish Parks and Recreation Department stopped by the 710 KEEL studio this morning, and he brought a couple of "friends" with him - two live snakes!

Erin McCarty confessed she was horribly afraid of the crawly critters, but Robert J. Wright convinced her to hold one for the first time in her life. In exchange, he'll wipe clean her debt for some headphones he bought for her when they made the switch to 710 KEEL from KVKI.

Erin says she's not entirely over her fear of snakes yet, but she was brave enough to let Scarborough hand over one of his pals. Take a look at the photos! As you can tell, neither I nor Robert are scared of the slithery reptiles.
