I wish I had never read his political posts. He is a special combination of crazy and hate.

Me too. I wouldve never guessed someone who enjoys playing with snakes in the woods would be a bleeding heart lib.

Alright I don’t mind catching the non-poisonous ones but I am not going near a poisonous snake. Nope Nope Nope

let's mix things up a bit and head south. From near Cotulla last weekend...the horniest of toads and a texas tortoise. El tortuga was napping under my buddy's chair while he was hunting. Scared the shite out of him when he woke up.

Had a horned toad as a kid back in the 1970s - one of our first pets. I think they are one of the coolest critters.

The poisonous/venomous debate is silly.

As a snake catcher for 50+ years (obviously both poi...I mean venomous and non-venomous), I’m fine with people calling them poisonous. It amuses me when people make a big deal out of this.

Oh I agree. There seems to always be that one person, though.

This guy has been living around our house for a few years, but today is the first time I saw him before he saw me.

re: The Herpetology Photo Thread (Reptiles & Amphibians)
Only saw 3 cottons today, but saw the prettiest one so far this year, followed by the meanest. Had one snap at me when I approached him, whereas they usually just open wide to put on their defensive display. All were pretty skittish today and took off pretty quickly, which is unusual. Didn’t even get to attempt any grabs today. Saw a nice sized skink too.

It’s obvious why some juvenile cottons get mistaken for copperheads.

King Snakes are bad ass, I have so many around my backyard. A lot of the speckled ones. We had a problem with those big river rats getting on the roof and trying to get into the attic for a while and then I started noticing more and more snakes. I’ve only seen one copperhead but over 20+ Kings. The kings like to hang out in and around the tomato and eggplant garden. Haven’t seen a mouse/rat in over a year.

re: The Herpetology Photo Thread (Reptiles & Amphibians)
First snake I caught on my new land back in the fall was a king snake, though I haven’t seen another since. First one I’ve caught in probably 20 years. Caught plenty as a kid, but for the past 17 years before my recent move, I lived in Slidell around the Honey Island Swamp, and they just weren’t there. Saw 1 dead one years ago then missed one a year or so ago, only to find it dead on the road in that same spot a couple weeks later. Hopong to see more around my land. I could use some with all these mocs.

TigrrDad... I love your posts, but you must live in Cottonmouth Paradise. We couldn't be neighbors.

It’s really kind of crazy. I grew up right on the 40 arpent canal in Chalmette and caught snakes there for 12 years. Practically every day of my youth I walked the banks of the canal or went out in my pirogue. And in those 12 years I ran across a total of 3 cottonmouths. Caught various species of water snakes by the dozens every summer, but cottonmouths were rare. Here at my new place in Folsom, it’s the exact opposite. I have yet to come across a water snake on that creek. Nothing but cottons. And they are all small. Can’t wait to run into momma and poppa cotton - they been busy.

I have one in my gold fish pond. Bronze. It roams the back porch at night.

I got one too in my koi/turtle pond. One will find the pond and hang out for a little while...sometimes a season and then move on. This one will give out a single croak even through out the day at times. Kinda cool.
