If you use chrome, there is an extension that makes all photos visible.

Yeah, photobucket was fixed. Now it's tinypic with the same issue. Pretty sure, it's a photobucket scam to get people to buy subscriptions. I guess I'll use imgur, but I can't use that on my work computer, and it's a pain in the arse on my phone.

re: The Herpetology Photo Thread (Reptiles & Amphibians)
Moved onto my acreage in Folsom almost 2 months ago and was getting discouraged because I had not seen a single snake yet. Finally doubled up today with my first speckled king in probably 20 yrs., followed by a danger noodle.

...also got to have a little fun texting my wife and letting her guess which one got me.

I no longer pick up speckleds. Just not worth it.

Didn’t mind the nip but could have done without the musking.

Nice bump!

Back in the day, before it got all built up, speckled kings were very common in St Tammany. Would see them all the time, maybe as much as any other snake.

re: The Herpetology Photo Thread (Reptiles & Amphibians)
I used to catch a lot in Chalmette back in the day. Before Folsom, I was in Slidell right by the Honey Island Swamp for the past 17 years. Caught rat snakes, garters, ribbons, black racers, etc., but only saw one live king and one dead one in all that time. It really surprised me. I was happy to catch this little guy today on my land. I released him back right where I caught him.

I was less enthused to find Mr. Cotton. My neighbor said he’s killed a few, but I assumed he was mostly killing water snakes (the usual case of mistaken identity). When I saw this one laying across my trail, I was shocked that it was actually a Cottonmouth. There’s a very small creek running through the property, and he was around 20 ft. away from it. I walk my Yorkie on the trails almost every day. Thankfully he wasn’t with me because he would have reached the moccassin before I got to it.

That fourth picture is where the trail would have ended for me.

I encountered one exactly like that on a trail in an NWR. Problem was, I did not see it until I was in mid step directly over it. Turned out, it was very docile. Probably a bit cold.

re: The Herpetology Photo Thread (Reptiles & Amphibians)
Caught another danger noodle. 2 in the past few weeks on my trails. This is crazy - I’ve never caught this many snakes this late in the year. My son and I walked right over this one. We walked over to the little creek on my land, turned around and took a couple steps back in the direction we had just come from, and he was right there laying on the trail. We had to be within a foot or two of him seconds earlier. You ever hear the expression “if it was a snake it would have bitten you”? Close call.

Missed another black racer yesterday. I’m 0 for 4 on black racer attempts in the past month. Either they’ve gotten faster or I’ve gotten slower. I’m thinking the latter. Definitely the first time I’ve chased a snake in December though. Damn global warming.

My ribbons have been coming out pretty regular on sunny days.
