    Can we make this the offical snake thread?

    I need more Owsley snake knowledge in my life.

    My retarded snake story. Growing up in the country in SC, me and a friend saw a baby brown snake in a field one day. Decided to chase into a red solo cup, then walk back to his house with my hand over the top of the cup. Get back to his house and put it in a glass fish bowl and the snake starts flipping out. Take it outside to the guys that were expanding their driveway and they flip out and say it was a baby copperhead or something like that. They proceeded to chop it's head off. No idea if it really was, but that was the last time I ever fucked around with a snake that I wasn't 100% sure what it was.

    Ophiophagus, which is the genus king cobras are the sole resident of, means snake eater in Latin.

    Also wouldn't surprise me if that's not the first dog they've had doing that. That video linked to a video of like 5 full grown dogs going after a king cobra, forgot how big those things get.

    They're cannibalistic, if that helps.

    Wish I could find some cool snakes like that, all I ever see is garter snakes. We have a rock wall in the back yard that if you start flipping rocks they are full of them.

    Isn't it true that baby venomous snakes are more potent than their adult counterparts?

    It's what I've always heard. Supposedly they can't control the amount of venom they release :idk:

    So they eat other snakes? Do any snakes eat them? I think I recall that possums eat them. Can't say I want those fuckers running around, though. Anything that would be dog friendly eat cottonmouths?

    This is generally regarded as urban legend. They might be more likely to pump you up due to an enormous size discrepancy, but they can control their venom output, otherwise hunting would become an issue.

    Honestly, you're probably right. I was fucking with this thing in shorts, flip flops, and was pretty out of my gourd when I found it. But our french bulldog had cornered it under a spare tire. I moved the tire out with my foot and he was just chillin. Luckily the dogs didn't decide to attack it when I did. Moved the tire back over him, got the dogs inside, caught him with some grabbers and stuck him in a deep aluminum trash can.

    We used to have a blue heeler mix that did this with any snake she found. Crazy old bitch.

    I know I brought this up in the last snake thread, but we had an Indigo snake in my barn. Between that and the barn cat, venomous snakes didn't stand a chance.

    It's like a small parking area. Then has some grass. A chain linked fence. Then cliffs, which these fuckers love to chill in. So they prob come off the rocks and chill near or in the fence.

    There's like 10 signs placed so even the dumbest of idiots would get the hint.

    Yeah here is my story:

    So my dad used to rattlesnake hunt. We would go to gopher holes and dig them out of the holes in the winter. The catch. We kept them alive at one of his friends house and would feed them to keep them growing until we eventually would kill most of them but the biggest ones and take them to various rattlesnake roundup events. Where we would sale the live ones and the dead ones.

    Anyways, I never actually caught one. I would however go with my dad. One day they give the all clear for a gopher because they couldn't hear the rattle. So little pharmdnole walks up to the gopher hole and a black racer races out between my legs. So I high tailed to the truck and ate all the fried chicken. My dad gave it up a few years after but I've seen him slam on the breaks in the truck jump out and grab a little limb and pop a rattle snake on his head and just throw it back and give to his friends so they can take it to be made into a belt.

    I have an uncle who used to rattlesnake hunt in Arizona. Had a run-in with a gila monster once that resulted in the lizard getting a .38 round in its head

    Sounds like a real winner. Gila's pose absolutely no threat to humans, plus they're a protected species in Arizona. But yea for senseless killings!

    He claims it came running at him. He also claims he wasn't sure what it was until after he shot it, he just knew it was something approaching him and hissing.

    I don't know, I wasn't there so whatever.

    If you went the opposite direction across 280 then you'd be on Hwy 41 (AKA Dunnavant Valley Road). It's what Treetop Adventure is on.
