Couple snakes


Recommended Posts

Well heard from a gentleman there's lots knowledgable people on here about snakes, first two are black rattle tails, second 2 someone said hog nose , next one gold rattle tail , next one nest of hog nose I think although there were 10 of them rapped in a ball heads kind had diamond shape, last 2 copperhead, seen many but always 18 inches or less, this guy was well over 3 ft, was crossing the toad by my house, stopped cars till he got back in the woods safely. I probably save at least 10 rattle heads a month in august, they like to lay in the road, city people come out and flatten them, shame, many thanks!

Very nice pix, thanks.

Ephesians Chapter 6:12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

Joshua Chapter 1:9  
Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the LORD thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest.

Thanks for posting on this site.  That other site sucks and I refused to post there anymore.  The ban didn't help.  I did request that someone ask you to post your pics here.

 

I am glad that you find snakes interesting and thank you for not feeling the need to chop off their heads with a shovel.

 

The snake that has been referred to as a hognose appears to be a juvenile black rat snake - see the line across its face.  Its pattern is reminiscent of a hognose, though so it would depend on how  / thick it was.

 

The "pile" of juvies are rattlenakes, most likely neonates or young-of-the-years.

 

Rattlesnakes come in two color-phases:  yellow and black.  Has nothing to do with male or female.

 

Nice pics.  Please keep them coming.

going to check both spots maybe they live there year round, will post pictures if any babies in the holes. 

Females show a strong fidelity to their birthing sites, but that's where they go only to birth.  They gestate (most times), shed, bask, elsewhere.  Females give birth once every three years, so if its dry this year, it might not be the next .............
