And there she was today. Keeping the egg safe and warm. Gets me every time.
That is an Indego black snake, they are on the protected species list.
That made me lol. That is going in the sig.
NOPE!!! I would quit.. nuh uh...
I get a few types of snakes in my yard. The only ones I don't let live are the coral snakes near or in the house. I'll try to catch them first (to take to a nearby zoo), but if it looks like I won't be able to catch them, they don't survive the encounter.
Found another thief in the hen house.
That is a nice looking snake. Good size too.
If you look at the eyes of the snake and see Pupils that go up and down then it is venomous. That should at least help narrow down the search. But I'm pretty sure its just a rat snake
good to know...but I'll never get that close to find out.
Lmao! That is funny.
That's not 100% true, it's more of a common misconception. There are a lot of snakes that have Elliptical pupils (Cat eyes), wether they're venomous like the pit viper family (rattlesnakes, copperheads, cottonmouths, etc) or non-venomous like boas, anacondas, or pythons. There's also a bunch of venomous snakes that have round pupils, like the elapids family (Cobras, mambas, taipans, coral snake, etc).
Typically, the pupils can dictate wether the snake is nocturnal (Elliptical or cat eye) or diurnal (round pupil).
With out becoming really familiar with snakes, there's no conclusive or definitive way to tell venomous from non-venomous.
I'm talking about snakes in the US. But I could be wrong.
I saw this threat and make me cry (I'm just kidding) but actually make me sad. Today when I got back from work I found one of my Ball Pythons dead.
Sorry to hear that man. I know how that feels.
This applies everywhere. I'm not saying what you said was wrong, just don't rely solely on the pupils to determine if it's venomous or not. If you live in an area with an abundance of snakes, it would behoove you to research the ones in your area.
Just remember they're like any other animal, they're just as afraid of you as you are of them.
