    This type stuff will never make sense to me. How does medical care work when they are inevitably bitten? I assume it's super expensive to either have a hospital keep it in stock or have it flown in asap. Do they have insurance? Has to be one of the more dangerous hobbies. Kinda feel like someone fucking around with deadly Snakes for fun should be on their own financially if they are bitten.

    This guy lives in Thailand and zero clue how their system works

    I don’t disagree, they shouldn’t be insured. There’s a good amount of Floridians I follow that are nearly as crazy

    There’s an account called primitive predators I follow that is a bit disturbing

    Guy is clearly a trust fund baby worth at a minimum $100 mil and building a crocodile Jurassic park. What happens if he dies. Literally hundreds if not thousands at the rate he’s going of non-native crocodiles

    I certainly don’t condone free handling venomous reptiles, but he at least takes immaculate care of his animals. Awesome IG follow, but no matter how well you know and can read animal behavior, it’s coming at some point.

    Just found this guy in the driveway right next to the house. Didn't feel good about it, but had to kill him. Too many pets and kids around. Some kind of very young rattlesnake. Had one rattle.

    I would have relocated it. If I was uncomfortable with snakes, I would’ve called a licensed professional to do it.

    Newborns are typically between 10-12”, so this was probably a second year individual.

    How long would it take for a licensed pro to show up? I ask bc I live in an area that was a swamp 2 years ago and snakes are really common. I have dogs and a kid so I can't have a dangerous snake around. I'd prefer not to kill it but idk what I'd do for a a few hours while I waited. Throw a box over him?

    Is there truth to the thought that young venomous snakes (I've heard it applied to copperheads) are more potent? Also, I'm team let them live, but poisonous critters are an exception when close to the house......sorry.

    Depends on where you are, but I’d imagine in Florida you could get someone out pretty quickly. A lot of times local fire departments can help out as well. I always tell people who encounter snakes around their home and don’t want them, to gently spray the snake with a garden hose towards the nearest point of egress. They oblige very well.

    Yea but I don't want him to just leave and go back to the woods. I have dogs and a kid, I want him long gone. Would throwing a box over him get him to chill for an hour until someone shows up? Bc I'm not fucking with him.

    Remember, you made a choice to move into their territory, not vice versa. Urban sprawl continues to fragment habitat and impact all forms of wildlife, and because of this encounters with them will continue to increase until they’re all squeezed out of a given area.

    But yes, putting a box or inverted trash can with a weight on top of it should get the snake to stay in place until someone gets there. Snakes can typically strike about 1/3 of their total length, so keep that in mind. A cornered snake will also naturally be more aggressive, so always leave an exit path for them. The vast majority of venomous snake bites in America are incurred by people harassing/killing said snake.

    Yea not saying it's his fault. I get it and wouldn't want to immediately kill it. Honestly this thread has changed my opinion on that. I was all set to kill that snake in the OP if he was venomous. Now I don't think I would. I'd the box over him and call someone.

    The rattlesnake conservancy is based out of Jacksonville, and they’re great people. Look them up and see if they’re doing anything near you sometime. They do a great job explaining the benefit of snakes, educating the public, going over hypothetical situations like you described, etc. They’ll also bring some nonvenomous species for handling to help people get over phobias.

    There are all kinds of folks who will come relocate quickly. Degausser , if you live in a spot where you might see snakes somewhat regularly, you should have them on speed dial when a situation like this occurs.

    Yeah, we moved out to a pretty rural area a little under a year ago. Surprisingly, this was the first snake we've seen, venomous or non.

    Could certainly be a cat. I’ve also seen them predated on by mockingbirds of all things in my yard, and they’ll violently shake the snake to incapacitate it. They also seem to desiccate quite quickly.
