    Something tells me you go on regular Critter Hunts around your property just to torment her.

    Poor Greta...

    In which case I recommend this next time:

    Cute little king snake. We don't have them around here.

    I couldn't tell you the number of midland water snakes I've seen people kill who mistook them for copperheads, though. Always breaks my heart. They're great snakes to have around.

    I also encourage black racers and chickensnakes to take up residence at my place. I'm surrounded by farm land and having those guys around keeps the mice in check. People think I'm nuts

    I used to keep snakes. Kings, Pueblan milk snakes, and hognoses were big favorites.

    I have pit tagged corals. They are beautiful but aggressive snake when being handled. Always tube them. Actually, back in the day, they were the only southeastern hot that I felt uncomfortable handling because of their size. I have been tagged 2X by venomous snakes but luckily not by corals or an EDB.

    I've been bitten twice. Once by a timber rattler, and once by a copperhead. The rattlesnake gave me a warning. Not so much with the copperhead.

    Bites are no bueno!!! At least mine were not fun. Burned and hurt like hell from the swelling!! Yes, a copperhead and a cottonmouth for me. Both were not, for once, because of my stupidity. I was conducting a study of timbers in east Texas a few years ago as part of a larger study looking at RCW habitat and had this one wander through my gear and feet as I was taking notes. It had been released about 20 minutes earlier a good distance away. Did not hear it on a very windy day. You can see the toe of my boot in the lower center.

    Hunted them for an older gentleman who made belts. $50/snake was good money at 16, but the pain and burning were horrible. More swelling from the copperhead though.

    I assume it was the rattlers he was using for belts?

    I've been making hat bands out of copperheads for years. But belts? I don't think you'd ever find a copperhead that big.

    No, none that big, that would be terrifying. He would send us after the rattlesnakes, just happened to encroach upon a copperhead's territory.

    We enjoyed Greta's reaction! A bunch of years ago, when my girls were little, I also found a King snake sunning itself on our driveway. It was about that size. I snagged it and we kept it as a pet for about six months. In that time it grew to be about 4' long and we fed it mice. I remember the first time it ate a mouse, it was fascinating. A buddy who is a Park Ranger warned me to not lose it in the house, as they are a master of hiding. I kept it in the garage in an aquarium with screen lid. One day I came home to find that one of the girls didn't put a brick on the lid and the snake was gone, never saw it again.

    My youngest daughter is fearless when it comes to snakes. Insects and she runs out of the room screaming. Did you have to sleep on the couch?

    King snakes will eat other snakes. I was a member of the area herpetological society as a kid and kept a number of snakes. I had a California King that I raised to be an adult, and would on occasion catch small queen snakes in the creek and feed them to him.

    When that same snake was a juvenile I had thrown a fuzzy in for it that ended up being too big. He constricted it and tried to eat it, but it was too big. I threw the dead fuzzy in with two adult black rat snakes that decided they both wanted some and the one started to eat over the head of the other. I had to pull the head off the one and then cut the mouse in half with a pair of scissors. Greta would have loved that one.

    Up here where I'm at there are just three kinds of snakes basically. All of them pretty benign. The worst one is potentially dangerous if you're old or sick... Is that one dangerous Zack?

    Nope...totally harmless...We have 50 different snakes in Florida...only 6 are venomous...but a couple of the non-venomous ones are big enough to eat a small deer...:)

    A King snake is good to have around a farm, kills other snakes, mice, had a big one that lived in my Grandmaws old wash shed. Unfortunately my oldest son visited me and went in the wash shed, I heard a terrible ruckus, son shovel in hand had the 6 ft King snake down but snake had the upper hand, he yelled I watched and the snake gave him hell, finally slipped away thru the cracks in the old wash shed and I never saw my pal no more. Son says to me That booger was strong. I know used to play with them, Hubert Lee and me as boys put one in rural mailbox,it did not want to go in, we wrasselled that Boger in, when the rural carrier a woman opened that box it jumped in her car. That's the only time Grandpaw laid a hand on me.

    The only good Copperhead is a dead Copperhead. The same for Water Moccassins.

    If you want to be the ultimate practical joker Zack, tomorrow when she gets up, let her come down to find you looking under the sofa. When she asks you what you're doing, tell her you lost the snake in the house!

    Today, in many parts of these United States, your ass is likely to get sued for the trauma (!) experienced by said mail carrier.... Funny as hell, though. My Dad told of the paper bag full of Royal Yacht on the front stoop- light it on fire and watch the homeowner come out and stomp on it.

    Favorite, though, was nasty guy who harangued my Dad and his friends, so one Winter night they filled his boots (left on the porch) with urine. Probably nicer in the frozen state!
