Shotguns do a wonderful job on snakes.
The Neanderthal was a cannibalistic creature which nonetheless buried his own dead; that means that a typical Neanderthal saw the living world as neatly divided into two parts i.e. his own family group, and meat. That also means that Cro Magnons never had to face more than 20 - 30 of them at any one time, that was the most major factor. Other factors were fire (a creature with a 6" fur coat was fairly easy to simply light up), dogs (to prevent incursions and defeat most of the Neanderthals' advantage from night vision), and casting weaponry, particularly the atlatl.
I'd be willing to accept a simple apology now, before making you look like a total bumbling/blathering imbecile since you are clearly dealing from total ignorance on this topic
There are lots of good ideas in our constitution,
but easily the most valuable idea for every country on the planet is the First Amendment.
OK... What exactly is it that you think you know about Neanderthals which Danny Vendramini doesn't??
I met a man from N. Orleans once who lived near the swamps. He told me every year, like clock work, more boneheads drown while fending off snakes than from being bit. He said the snakes will drop out the trees while you're fishing and the fishermen will freak, shoot at 'em and blow out the bottom of their boats...
I guess if the snakes don't get 'em the gators will.
