Did you let him go?
I never find Copperheads entertaining. Snakes and I always go our separate ways, thank you very much!...:)JP
poison snake + death for me. did you or did you not... he is a fine speciman.
if they're far enough from the house, i let them be. sadly too many are encountered near the house and in the barn.
Ummmm...I need a drink! ;)
I would be screaming and running! You are B-R-A-V-E!
You are one bad ass girl. I love it!
That's a beauty! Unfortunately for copperheads, if I find them here, they get killed. My three year old niece is always about 'helping' feed the horses etc, and I couldn't deal with her getting bitten after I let one live. There's always a chance she could be bitten anyway. That said, copperheads are definitely beautiful and I feel bad killing them. Especially when they've had the chance to bite me but haven't. One took up residence in our hay stall one year, and I ended up walking back and forth over her repeatedly and she never did anything but rattle her tail against something to try and frighten me away. When I DID see her, she fled. And then immediately returned to reclaim her spot. She was over three feet long and gorgeous.
Oh now you shouldn't have told me that:(. Hug B
We don't get many poisonous snake in our neck of the woods.
I would have to kill that one!Living in the Ozarks, I have never seen one in the wild but I know they must be here.
Beautiful snake , but I wouldn't play with it.
Oh, so glad that adventure was in your favor! Snakes are the one creature that I would run away from.
Steve Earle yes, pictured snake, uh-no thanks. Fortunately, I haven't seen one in the 10 years I've been here. I've encountered lots of blacks and kings, and a pretty little iridescent blue one, but no copperheads. I hope it stays that way.
We used to have a lot of copperheads where we lived in SC. They are beautiful snakes… from a safe distance!
Gail,I would have to kill him. Last year I had several copperheads in the garden. This garden season I've been on alert and have a shovel with me all the time.Last week I had a snake in the garden, it wasn't poisonous it was just a garden snake. He ended up dead.
Your idea of toys is a lot different from mine. ;-)Good you are okay!Have a wonderful Friday! ♥
Careful my dear . . . !
Be careful! There was a sidewinder up at the horse ranch and I've seen 3 non-poisonous snakes. I used to scream bloody terror, but now I just stifle my screams because the ranch owner came running and killed the first one, a gopher snake. He should have let it live to eat all the damn ground squirrels up there! The squirrels are more of a threat to the horses than any snake because if the horses step in a hole, they could break a leg.
