Need A Hug? How About One From A Reptile?

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

They're in our rivers. They're in our yards. And sometimes...they get in our houses! Reptiles are part of living in Georgia -- and this weekend, one state park is offering a unique chance to learn more about our "hidden" neighbors.

Panola Mountain State Park is proclaiming this Saturday "Reptile Day" -- presented by specialists from the Georgia Reptile Society and Georgia Herpetological Society. It's a chance to get up close -- yes, up close -- to snakes and reptiles from Georgia (and around the world), and learn about these fascinating creatures. Scared? Don't be. Organizers say it'll be an interesting and fun day for participants. It's also a chance to explore the 1,635-acre Panola Mountain State Park, which offers hiking, geocaching, and even an archery range.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken is not afraid of snakes -- so he says -- and went to the park for a little preview of Reptile Day. Did he get a hug...or run screaming? Find out by clicking on the videos above.

    We already know about some of the fees our banks charge -- the monthly fee, the overdraft charge, out-of-network and minimum balance fees. That's standard stuff. But did you know that the average checking account has 30 fees attached?
