There are no snakes on yachts and sailboats so nobody on the OT knows anything about them.


You need to go to the OB, where burly arse men hang out.

a quick google search lead me to this:

quote:

One of the myths is that when a Copperhead is nearby it smells like a cucumber. This is both true and false. When a Copperhead is provoked their body secretes an oder that does smell like cucumbers. However, a Copperhead at rest doesn't.

From the National Zoo's Website:

quote:

The copperhead is the cause of many snakebites yearly but they are rarely fatal. Bites occur when people accidentally step on or touch the snake, which tends to be well camouflaged in its surroundings. When touched, the copperhead quickly strikes or remains quiet and tries to crawl away. Sometimes when touched, they emit a musk that smells like cucumbers.

If you get bit by a copperhead and do anything more than cursing, you might have a 'gina.
