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
And I think they are more aggressive.
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.
They eat each other. I can assure you possums don't eat them .
my old job required me to step over rattlesnakes on a daily basis
my new job lets me TMB all day
I like my new job
Where can I pick up a mob of mongeese?
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.
My bad. I was thinking of opossums, not possums. I always fuck those up.
"She says no boom-boom with soul brother!"
O'possums have the Irish accents. HTH
If you kill a venomous snake, ALWAYS bury the head
Vic Dunnaway, one of the founders of Florida Sportsman, once said one of the easiest ways to spot a Yankee was their spelling of possum with an o and coon with an r.
this is a super old video but it's always amazed me....speaking of having huge balls when it comes to snakes
Had to look up indigo snake
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.
Rabbit gives snake the what for: https://www.thedodo.com/mother-rabbit-attacks-snake-1211670128.html
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.
I can assure you gila's can't run, nor move at anything resembling a high rate of speed.
Whatever. Again, I wasn't there. Just sharing a story I was told.
let your dad know he's a coward and Clown Baby is on his way
So pretty much
Not sure what my father has to do with this
Sounds about right
dad, uncle. Clown Baby doesn't discriminate
Lmbo good one
Owsley is like that reptile guy from Jackass
If a snake killed my Boston Terrier, I would commit my life to eradicating every snake on earth. I would be like Quinn from Jaws, but for snakes.
Or Quint even.
My only experience with snakes is my cat occasionally murders one and leaves it on the porch.
Kinda blows my mind there is an animal that is that color crawling around the earth.
You live in that neighborhood on the ridge of Double Oak or do you live off Hwy 41?
more evidence in favor of cats being the GOAT pets
This commercial annoys the fuck out of me for that very reason.
I'm not super familiar with Hwy 41. I'm on old Hwy280. It's a neighborhood called The Narrows.
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.
Oh okay. I know where you're talking about. Yea that's right across the road.
