Saw my first snake of 2013

Just a little bitty one...about 3 inches long. I guess it must of just hatched. Spring is on the way.

We did too

Ours was in the driveway and escaped into an opening on the edge of the garage door. This was a 18" long Green garden or garter snake. Kinda like this one.

Interesting. We have two feet of snow in the back yard, he says, wiping a tear away. Man, I hate winter.

I hate snakes. I don't care about the rodent control thing, I hate snakes.

you fear snakes.

We don't have nearly enough here. I think in 35 years that I have seen maybe 5 snakes here.

They are on a rampage here in South Florida. They are damaging the eco system so Fish& Game host snake grabbing contests to catch them. Huge Boa constrictors. I don't play with that stuff. And I watch my dogs when I'm outside like a hawk.

No, I don't fear snakes, I hate snakes, here in California they are everywhere in the unimproved areas, and a lot of them are rattle snakes. If you ever saw someone who's survived a rattle snake bite, you might learn to hate 'em too.

When I was a lad in Alabama, we had 'em worse than here in California, they were in the water, on land, in the woodpile, and sometimes in the house. When you pull out a drawer, and a snake is in it, well, not the way to start the day. I learned to hate 'em at an early age.

Agreed, and everything I like to do (offroading, dirt bikes, etc.) requires having to come across them more than I prefer, especially since I have a fear of them. I stopped mountain biking in north San Diego county, because I had one too many close calls being out by myself. I was on edge so much, it was no longer fun. What blows me away is how others do not seem to mind sharing the trails with them and don't seem to have the same fear I do.

You are 100% right They also believe that the problem starts with people who bought these snakes, no longer wanted them and turn them loose.They thrive down here and reproduce .Why someone could even own a snake as a "pet" is beyond my thinking.

It's the year of the Snake in the Chinese Lunar Calender. Chinese New Year was just last week. 1/6th of the world was/are having a feast and festivals. It's still going on at some parts.

Happy New Year of the Snake!

Unfortunately, most reptiles are being depleted throughout the world.
The lizards, turtles, frogs and snakes. Florida non-native species is
another stupid human issue.
