    One of the biggest and thickest Garter Snakes I’ve ever seen.

    Walked up on this little fawn today which couldn’t have been more than a few days old. It was amazing how still it remained. We snapped a few pics then bypassed it as momma couldn’t have been far away.

    The previous page has a king sake eating a copperhead and talks about them being immune to the venom.

    Not snakes, and I know TMB will just tell me to burn my house down, but I will decline. We've got some big awesome spiders hanging out(outside) at our new place.

    This yellow garden spider has been chilling here for about a month now. He's awesome.

    IMG_24072021_073900_(800_x_1000_pixel).jpg

    And we have a couple windows that funnel web weavers have claimed. This is the larger of the two webs. He's down in that thickest funnel right now, so I can't get a good pic of him. Maybe later.

    IMG_24072021_073913_(800_x_1000_pixel).jpg

    Anyways, good morning and enjoy the spiders TMB. They're good.

    Google Research told me a baby grey rat snake. Let him loose in the landscaping outside.

    Watched a doc on the reintroduction of the eastern indigo species (non-venomous, eats poisonous snakes) on Alabama public tv recently. Are you familiar with the project Owsley and can you provide any updates? Isn’t this the largest species in North America or east of the Mississippi or something?

    DeKay’s brown snake. Harmless eater of worms and slugs in the flowerbed.

    Looks like someone nailed its tail end with a hoe or shovel. May their garden be blessed with an abundance of slugs.

    I've found no less than 6-8 skins from these little fellas.

    I think I posted this /csb already but I was digging out a small pile of dead grass in my yard at the edge of my driveway. It was very close to dark, I was barehanded and as I pulled the grass away a brown colored snake was in my hand. I immediately thought copperhead but it was a DeKay's. I came so very close to shitting my pants in my driveway.

    Yeah pretty sure they're the largest or longest species in North America. I've been trying to get one, but they're pretty rare, especially in the pet trade.

    Look into yellow-tailed and black-tailed cribos. Same genus as indigos (Drymarchon) and much easier to procure, though still not super common.

    He was only 1.5-2ft long. I hooked him with a free standing plant hanger and moved him into the tree/brush line. He just had a pretty good meal of something. I would assume it was either a toad/frog just based on what normally hangs around the house

    Bull snakes (Pituophis catenifer sayi) are one of a handful of recognized subspecies of gopher snakes (P. catenifer).
