  1. Wow! Is this a rat snake?

    Yes, that would be correct! I think it was thinking about eating some kitten.

  2. …..O….M….G…!!!!!…….T.h.u….d! Don’t care how long I live down here…I never get used to those things…also knowing it’s dead…just seeing termite holding it…my skin is crawling with the shivers…ok..just breathe…
    I pulled a copperhead out from under my push mower prior to starting it this week..but it was only 7-8 inches…I mowed my lawn on my tippy toes mind you….You have found my weakness…and it’s ssssssssnakes! I can’t quite looking at that young man holding it….I have watched them climbing trees, seen them sleeping in holes in the ground, slithering off patio roofs, and dug them up with potatoes…They are E V E R Y W H E R E….but I can’t get used to them!!! uuuugh…errrh..thanks for sssharing…(Termite..go wash your hands baby!!!!)
    Deb in Tx, with one shakey cup of coffee…shhhezzzzzzzz

    Yea, I’m with you, Deb. I hate to kill a non-poisonous snake, but this one startled him and the big yellow dog, and yes he did use his Christmas present on it. Watch out for those copperheads, though.

  3. Yikes. I try to maintain an agreement with the snakes around our place: you stay outside of our property lines, and I won’t kill you. Unless you’re a copperhead, and then all bets are off.

  4. Yeah, I just remembered, I can’t come down the bayou… ever… again. *shudder* Where WAS that?! And it’s a king snake, right?

  5. Oh… missed the first comment. Rat snake. I can see it now. I’m going to have to adopt ALL those little kitties!

    Please, please please come get the kitties. Better yet, I’ll drop them off with a bag of food, and Muzicman will just think they belong to the big white house next door, where they ALWAYS have cats, right? Hey, that sounds like a good plan!

  6. It’s the water moccasins from the pond across the road that I REALLY hate to find in my yard! Big, black ugly vipers.

    You go, Termite!!!!

    Cuz, we don’t tolerate water moccasins here AT ALL!
