Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - March 23, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta ejive us a fair idea of the life spans of their relaties in the wild. One of the.se records goes o a boa constrictor was lorn in captivity on July 14 1900. After 23 years of pamper- ng, lie died of old age. The old timer measured 13 feet plus two nches. Most likely 23 years or ;o is the normal life span for big boas in the wild. In captivity, the larger types tend to live longer than the smaller snakes. The little gar ter snakes and grass snakes seem to have life spans of 12 to 14 years. But the medium-sized snakes hardly ever live more than two or three years in captivity. We know how long certain snakes can live in captivity, where they get plenty of food, plus warmth and moisture. But life in the wilds is very risky and few snakes get a chance to live as long as they otherwise could. Baby snakes are de- voured by herons and hawks, opposums, badgers and many other hungry enemies. The mongoose and certain eagles kill snakes of all sizes. But their worst enemies are those people who think that every kind of snake should be de- stroyed on sight. Questions asftefl Tjr cnlTtlien of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask Andy, P.O.

LONDON' (AP) Many young Englfc h couples a re fc.Jdng living in sin. vSecretly t hey'vo done the one thing not permitted by their permissive friends. They've got married. Free love has so much more status than marriage among the permissive set that when couples really do want to wed, many have to do it furtively. Then they fake the living in sin. It's Ixxause they're (oo ashamed fo tell their friends, says Stanley Jepson, an Eng- lish marriage licence regis- trar. "They are afraid of being thought he sa-id in an interview Sun- day.
