Antonia admired Jim in his knowledge and talents, such as when he killed the giant rattlesnake. She exaggerated greatly when telling Jim’s heroic tale of killing the rattler, saying the snake “fight something awful! He is all over Jimmy's boots. [Antonia] scream for him to run, but he just hit and hit that snake like he was crazy.” In Jim’s mind, Antonia represents the past. Considering that he did not keep in touch with Antonia over those twenty years, she became a more nostalgic and precious memory.

John Kostyack has a dramatic approach to the snake debate topic. He uses the fear factor to play on the readers emotions while he makes his point. His first sentence sets the tone for his entire argument, "Giant constrictor snakes have slithered, crushed, killed and terrified their way across movie screens for years. The real horror story, however, is much closer to reality — and to home.” While it’s easy to see that his main appeal is emotional, Mr. Kostyack does establish credibility when he specifically references the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services, and the National Wildlife Federation (which he is the vice president of).
Most insects can be killed without seeing them. Pesticide is sprayed, and it sticks to the ends of their legs, and this is then ingested when they eat food. Spiders don 't use the ends of their legs to feed. Insects can also take pesticides back to their nests where others are then killed by the chemicals. Spiders live most of their lives alone, so when you kill one, that is all you 've killed.
The most prominent use of similes is the comparison of characters to animal behaviors or characteristics. Steinbeck writes: “ …them injuns was cute—slick as snakes, an’ quiet when they wanted” (325) The former simile suggests that Indians are like snakes, shrewd and astute, which are the characteristics of snakes, slick, silent and in some cases deadly. In addition, another simile that is descriptive of the current activity through the California valleys and highways is: “…They streamed over the mountains, hungry and restless-restless as ants, scurrying to find work to do-to lift-to push, to pull, to pick, to cut-anything, any burden to bear, for food”(233). In this quote Steinbeck dramatizes the desperation of the dislocate farmers that have to feed their families but unable to do so by the lack of work. To correlate ants to humans allows the reader to conceptualize the agonizing inability that an assumed provider must feel when, being fully capable of working, unable to satisfy their families needs.

The Jararaca Pit Viper On page 26 of his book, The Lost City of Z: A Tale of Deadly Obsession in the Amazon, David Grann presents information on the Jararaca pit viper.

Throughout my essay I will discuss the physical description, mating and reproduction habits, and behavior of the Jararaca pit viper.
Trapping is a way to stop them. It’s possible set a trap full of mice with a cage. Then leave it and when the snake comes by, you could shut the door. The cage though has to be proper length in order to make the capturing much easier. Another thing to do is hunt for these snakes.
From the beginning of human time, snakes and serpents have been a symbol of evil power and chaos from the underworld, as well as a symbol of fertility, life and healing. A great deal of snakes are considered to be evil and bitter, but, most are friendly, such as a garter snake. For example, our world today is full of unexpected, corrupt and malicious entities that desire to gain possession over our country, right of religion and freedom of speech and second amendments.
