El Polvo

Critters

Recommended Posts

Saw this around Searchlight today.  He was delicious.

I hear they taste like chicken, that true?

I encountered this one the other day, he started to retreat and headed into the creosote brush.

I didn't get close enough to measurize him but a couple ft at least. He took off into the creosote brush buzzing all the way. It never moved to me, always away which is what I find most will do.

Under the creosote, see anything? This was a couple minutes ago

Nice size one, and I always hate it when you can't see their head! Never know where that head will jump out from. I haven't seen any rattlesnakes yet this year, but I am sure I will run into more than a few.

lol, I wasn't about to zoom in with my cell phone to get a better shot either!

 

I don't blame you for that, I would have been nervous not being able to see the head in the first place.

I've have never even seen one of those in the wild. Plenty of D'backs and Mohaves though. Don't like either one of those and prolly wouldn't like a C'head either

I like Kingsnakes, wanted to get one as a pet years ago! That's a big snake Norman! Wife seen a gopher snake cross the front walkway yesterday. We live right next to an open field, so I am sure we will see a rattlesnake sooner or later.

that copperhead got real aggressive when i first saw it. I backed up a few feet and pull my concealed weapon that i carry and got one round in it, it decided to go the other way and I got may hands on my 45 with snake shot. it laid still after that to get it photo taken. they are deadly, they also stretch out to strike. the real bad thing is they don't rattle before they strike if that would do me any good since i am almost deaf.

That would be good next to the eggs in the morning! I hate it when you nearly step on a rattlesnake and the don't even bother to rattle.

I have been working in rattlesnake country for 3 months and have not seen any. this met me in my drive way friday night when i got home.  he is 34" which is consider big for a copperhead.attachicon.gif100_0353.JPG

Here's 2 a pair of n. copperheads going to town. They didn't notice that 4 people were watching. :rockon22: Really though, Two snakes combating or copulating in the wild is a rarer site than a single hot.

I think I like my king snake better than those two. (Especially if they're making babies)

Personally, I'm a nerodiafile. Due to them always being the first snake of the year.

I like kings too. Back when I was little my dad convinced me that they had the attitude of a king rat.So I ended up with a pantherophis guttatus. Now I know they are as tame as pantherophis guttatus, but hard to keep alive in captivity.
