Non veni pacem mittere, sed gladium.
The thing is..... if you can see four, there are probably another dozen under the leaves.
They belong in a snake church, not out there in the wild.
They belong with my shovel cutting their heads off. Ick.
Found 'em - give me your shovel!
You are a brave woman!
Found three right away.Then #4 bit me on the ankle...=T.W.=
Nah They're just copperheads. They stink so bad and are so lazy, I can't see getting bit. I used to catch 'em and sell 'em to the snake church when I was a kid. Just get them in the morning when they are cold. AND NOT "deadly poisonous" They're Hemotoxic, almost nobody over the age of ten dies from copperhead bites. You'll just wish you could. IT HURTS and you swell up and turn black--Ask me how I know.---Ray
How much was the snake church paying per snake?
I got 2$ per for copperheads. 3$ for a big rattler. That was big money for a kid in eastern Kentucky in the late 60's and early 70's. Smokes were only .25cents a pack and a moon pie and Ni Hi was 45 cents. But it was legal back then, so it made almost as much money as digging "sang" in the fall. Its a federal crime to sell snakes now. I guess the snake dancers go out and catch their own ...Ray
I see three of them (bottom right, 1/4 up ~center, and one half way up in center). Guess I'd be toast. Where's the 4th one?
