    snake guys, what is going on with the rattler not rattling and keeping his head on the ground only biting back towards the end? Already injured before filming started?

    The Mediterranean geckos are the coolest. I have so many pics of them. Look around your lights in the evenings and :ohgosh:

    They are everywhere over here. They constantly get in when I open the door late at night and they're hiding in the door jam. Sometimes I'll have the blinds up and my dog will see one on the outside of the window and want to play with it.

    Saw one of these a few weeks back that was so big I thought it was a walking stick bug at first. Used to seeing the smaller ones.

    This guy poked his head out from under our front porch about 30 minutes ago. Hoping there's not a nest in our crawl space, exterminator is coming Monday.

    I am pretty good at finding dekays, flip over rocks and logs but how do I find other snakes?

    You honestly have to be out there more than anything. Visit state parks, state forests, etc. that give you an opportunity to search proper habitat. Consult google earth. Drive around late in the evening or early in the morning, preferably before/after a storm. Know what to look for and take your time looking.

    Can anyone help identify? It hangs out at night on my back porch. Just wanted to make sure it’s not a recluse.

    Not a recluse. Unless the perspective is all fucky, looks way to fat to be one. Recluse are like the size of a coin.

    Still, the abdomen looks too big, so do the legs.

    Not 100% but I'm pretty sure recluse don't really build webs like that in the open.

    These are all good points. Brown recluse gets its name from not wanting to be in the open. Also very thin abdomen with a “violin” shadow on the top of its cephalothorax. Very Skinny and long legged spider.
