Not really sure. It was at a zoo in upper-state New York. I was on vacation with a group of friends up there. A bunch of us were watching as the keepers brought out various animals when they hauled out this snake. I went over to it and reached out my hand to touch it's head, and it just went straight up my arm and up and over my shoulders.
Turns out there was a cage of small (and becoming increasingly agitated and wary) birds they brought out right on the other side of me, and I just happened to be the shortest route for the snake to take to get there.
I just remember the name after all this time because it rhymed.
