I never want to live in a place where something like that shows up on my driveway.
Do it if you can. It almost looks like a Timber Rattlesnake but I assume there was no rattle. I'm thinking probably one of those non-venomous hog-nosed snakes.
See if you can pull it's nose up and see what the fangs are like too
You'd know it was fast if it was a runner- unless he was taking his sweet ass time to show you whose boss.
If it was a runner going fast, I don't know if they can go slow?, you'd know it right away, it's true SEC speed
Nearly looks like a copperhead?
Timber rattler my guess also
Could be, the bands are just so dark- most of the ones I've seen the bands are almost orange.
You absolutely did the right thing. That snake looks like a nasty asshole. Even if it's not poisonous, you don't to risk it with one of god's creatures (dog) in your house
Looks poisonous from here. I agree with the Timber rattlesnake diagnosis.
Doing God's work by dispatching such a filthy creature.
re topic post
my uncle had a gigantic black snake that chilled near his chicken coop. clearly it was a threat to the eggs but by and large wasn't a problem. one day he was trying to remove it from the coop (persistent asshole) and accidentally banged it against the frame of the coop. well, since he was carrying it with a shovel, that bang cut it in half and killed it. two days later, he was picking some beans and a fat fucking copperhead asshole was underneath the shrub. turns out, giant fucking non poisonous snakes also eat shitty asshole poisonous snakes-- and their babies
moral: don't kill non-venomous snakes
animal control venomous ones; decapitate if necessary
This changes everything.
it really does
Out here in neb the common bullsnake, while a very cunty and pissed off snake most of the time is well known to eat rattlesnakes and therefore I try to encourage their existence when I can
The tail. No rattler but weird skin/growth
Random Snake from earlier last week.
What kind of crazy asshole signs up to be the snake guy for animal control?
Just looking at the pictures of that snake makes me uncomfortable.
yeah if you have a dog I'd have killed that too tbh
animal control if it were like 1pm or something
That fucker is big enough and looks enough like a copper head/moccasin to be killed off.
How big actually was it and what did you kill it with? Nice slice on it...
Also where are you specifically in Bama? Close to water?
Looks like the rattle is covered In skin it's shedding.
def. might have also explained its surly disposition.
Rattler in the middle of shedding
Looks like he came directly from the bowels of hell IMO
It was about 3 feet long if I had to guess. Not nearly as long as the black one I killed last week. I used a new garden hoe to kill it. I was surprised with its effectiveness. I'm up near Chelsea on HWY 280. But I live in a neighborhood that's backed up against a lot of woods and creeks, rivers, etc basically surround us.
Like Greystone up?
Yea actually. Go up Double Oak Mountain and the second light is my neighborhood. Almost to Chelsea but not quite.
That is a Timber Rattlesnake. I'm 100% sure.
Thank you based god lyrprophet for sending him back to hell
Wait. The black snake was eating the copperheads?
That doesn't sound right.
Chop off the tail and you got yourself a rattle
I saw this King Snake on the way to work this morning. Was pretty badass
The first pic you posted in the second set of photos makes it pretty obvious that it's venomous. Gotta look at those eyes....which is obviously a lot easier to do when the monstrosity is dead.
my stupid ass cats have brought up several baby moccasins from a creek that runs at the edge of my property and left them on my front porch
would have fucked that snake up too lyrprophet
And you definitely want to get rid of that thing. If your dog or some other dog (or heaven forbid a kid) goes up and fucks with its mouth they could still get pricked and envenomated.
Why the fuck am I talking like a herpetologist?
I did good things tonight I guess haha.
It says it hunts frogs and stuff and we have a shit load of frogs in the front yard. So that's probably what had its attention.
I will throw it in a trash bag asap. I'm taking the rattler though haha.
That's what they want you to think. They're really casing your place and plotting on you.
Here is a photo of that species striking...
I don't know who Casey Kanode is but I do not want his life.
Here's a story from someone who got bit....
Owsley has made us all experts
Bottom right on the pic.
the picture he posted of the snake biting. look at it closely
It looks like a rat snake
Circular eyes on rat snake = no venom
He's safely in a trash bag. All is well in the world.
We call them canebreak rattlers down here, but yes, the (dead) species in question is Crotalus horridus. The picture you posted is C. viridus, prairie rattlesnake.
Is this true across the board? All venomous snaked have the slit pupil? Would be good info since I live in FL.
Yes, at least in the US.
TOP 3 MOST COMMON TRAITS OF VENOMOUS SNAKES:
1) It is big and fat (all in the USA, except that red-black-yellow coral, are fat pit vipers)
2) It is a rattlesnake, with real rattles on the end of its tail
3) It has elliptical pupils (but I doubt you're close enough to look)
Thank you, friend.
