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

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 :mrgreen:

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. 8O 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.
