    Default Yep, Everything really is bigger in Texas

    Hambone and others, do sharpen your snake ID skills. This evening my little brother shot a 63" black snake...thinking it is a Water moccasin but not sure. The bugger was slitering by our cows and breeder bucks in the pasture by the water trough..not good as that is close to the yard! Will get a pic uploaded ASAP.

    Looks like a king snake. Not a "bad" snake as far as snakes go.

    I've killed 2 rattlesnakes so far this season. One the western diamond back was on the back porch . The other a sidewinder was in the driveway. I also seen a very large Diamondback about 100 feet out in the desert from the house. Went to get a tool by the time I got back it was gone...

    Chris, That typifies the one that shot the snake LOL
    I have a no snake policy here as they eat eggs, bees, or are poisonous...they all fall into one of those categories. Haha
    This thing had fangs and a triangle head...would that still be a rat snake?

    Just a rat snake. They have a pretty bad temper but overall are good snakes to have around. When you corner them the will rattle. It's pretty cool. The Mockingbird's were mad as could be last Sunday in my backyard. Went to check and there was a 3' Yellow Belly Racer out and about. Now that is a mean snake! Harmless though. If you can't tell I love snakes.
    Chuck Norris has a grizzly bear carpet in his room. The bear isn't dead it is just afraid to move.
