TIFTON, GA (WALB) -

It's not snakes on a plane and it is a whole lot less a dramatic.

ABAC hosted it's second annual "Snakes in the Stacks." 

Dr. Vanessa Lane is an assistant wildlife professor.

She has made it her mission to teach students that most snakes are safe.

In ABAC's library, she hosted an educational talk that allowed students and the general public to ask questions.

Some even conquered their fear of touching or holding a snake. 

The hot months bring out snakes in the Southwest Georgia area and she wants the public to know that most snakes will not hurt you if left alone. 

"If a snake is in your yard, just practice this one rule, don't touch it. The best thing to do is just leave it alone and let it do it's own thing, it will eventually leave," said Lane. 

It is important to keep pets and children away from snakes. 

Clean debris from areas in your yard and make sure there are no mice around your home.
