    Yup. The last week and a half has been nuts after a slow start to the monsoons.

    Owsley , can you give me a quick tutorial on newborn venomous

    I see Chrisweeet just bred baby kings and he’s treating them like garter snakes
    Saw another account treating a baby gaboon the same
    Then saw Dingo breed another and was using a hook with all of them, he does have a hyper allergy though. Seen a few others treat babies like they’re legit

    Kinda confused to how dangerous they are

    They’re just as dangerous as any venomous snake. Contrary to popular belief, they’re able to control their venom output like adult snakes, but may be more likely to deliver a higher yield given their small size and greater fear of predators. I don’t care how experienced you are, free handling venomous snakes is never a good idea under any circumstance. It’s not fun hooking juvenile snakes due to their small size and often flighty behavior, but it can be done. I’ve never free handled a venomous snake, but would feel more comfortable doing so with an adult.

    My dad allegedly saw a 5-6 ft rattler out in the woods we deer hunt today. Didn't have his phone so I don't have proof. Was probably gonna try to get out in the morning while it's cool to do some deer stand work. Gonna have the heebejeebes now

    Can't remember what kind of snake this was, maybe a king snake, but it had just shed its skin.

    "What a wimp"? No, not at all - you don't fuck around with snakes if you don't know what you're doing.

    But he is a complete dummy. How do you mis-identify a rattlesnake? I would have thought the lack of a rattle might be a clue? :yousoright:

    Nah not really. Usually just spring and summer, when the weather is warm/hot. November is a great time of year to be outdoors with the weather. Just too cold for reptiles. Let me know if you have any questions or need suggestions.

    Well, I knocked off a holy grail this week. Florida pine snake from south Georgia. This was the largest snake I’ve come across in the wild and absolutely magnificent in every way. Incredibly light patterning (even for a Florida pine) and a generally pleasant disposition with a little huffing and puffing. Considered rare to uncommon in Georgia, coordinates of this snake were logged and shared with DNR. I wish I got better photos, but my hands were literally trembling and we wanted to minimize stress to the animal as much as possible.

Usually try to relocate them but couldn’t get this one out from under the brush and wasn’t going to leave it there. Long story short we had rattlesnake for dinner last night and the skin is drying out in the shed.

    This little dude surprised me today when I lifted a skimmer lid. Dekay’s Brownsnake according to my seek app. I love that app. Focus camera on something and it spits out kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species.

    Anyways, he is taking up about a silver dollar’s worth of space on the ground.

    Escaped 18ft python on roof of house in Chandler's Ford

    Residents have described their shock after an 18ft (5.5m) python was spotted trying to get into a house.

    The Burmese python, which had escaped from a nearby property, was seen trying to get through an upstairs window from the roof of a house in Chandler's Ford, Hampshire.

    The reptile caused panic when it appeared early on Tuesday.

    It was eventually picked up by a neighbour who recognised it and returned it to its owner.

    Jenny Warwick said she looked out of the window at 05:15 BST and spotted the huge yellow snake on her neighbour's roof but did not realise what it was until she saw it trying to get in the upstairs window.

    She said: "I saw them trying to poke it out and it fell on their car. It was massive.

    "People passing by were staring and couldn't believe their eyes."

    Neighbour Linda Elmer, also a snake enthusiast, had already met the python, pictured here, and said it was a very docile pet
    Linda Elmer, who recognised the snake, said she was woken at 07:00 by worried neighbours banging on her door, trying to find the owner.

    She said: "Everyone was panicking.

    "I picked him up - no one wanted to help. It was very difficult because he's a big snake and I managed to hobble down the road with this 18ft python wrapped round me and knocked on the owner's door.

    "I think it was a shock for all of us.

    "He's beautiful and Burmese are very docile. They're not aggressive snakes anyway and I had one myself so I was comfortable picking him up."


    The RSPCA previously urged owners to keep snakes securely contained during hot weather as the warmer temperatures make them very active and more likely to escape.

    If something that large tries to give you a hug you’re basically gone in a couple minutes unless there are 2-3 strong folks (or 1 person with a meat cleaver) nearby and intervening, right?

    They have the strength to suffocate you and prevent you from unwrapping them. And coils easily wrap around your neck. Handling a snake that big needs at least 2 people bc the person it's wrapped around can't get it off. And is basically uncontrollable. There's a video of what looks like a carpet python, so 7 or 8 ft and probably not as big around as a baseball bat. thought this lady's hand was food it bit and coiled around her arm. And she couldn't get it uncoiled with just her free hand.
