The snake-woman of Jamestown, Virginia



When one thinks of a snake woman, one usually conjures up images of a carnival sideshow attraction (or a really awful low-budget British monster movie from 1961). However, in September of 1907, residents of Jamestown, Virginia, formed a search party to track down a supposed real-life snake woman, who was said to live in the swamp, slither on the ground, eat chipmunks, and shed her skin every year. Actually, kinda sounds like a girl I met off Plenty of Fish once...
