was mowing yesterday seen the 1st snake of the year little green one
I've been expecting to see one anytime now, but haven't. There's a black racer that lives around here, and a good sized corn snake. I'm hoping they wake up soon and get to work!
up here in Vermont I saw a robin redbreast for the first time this season... hoping it's a good sign!!
Saw a tiny black snake with a colored ring around its neck on Saturday.
What's a Frist Snake???
Barb- you saw a Ring Necked snake. They eat insests and are harmless, but leave a musky smell on your hands if you pick them up.
Keep that explanation up. They're harmless. Unless you're surprised by them eating their second egg out of the hen's nest then suddenly they're NOT hospitable and just because they don't bite doesn't mean they're welcome!
Um...I think she meant first snake? Maybe?
I saw my first snake of the season yesterday as well. Nice long garter snake; about 18 inches. He'd had something to eat as his belly was a bit bigger and hard about halfway down.
I thought someone found out something bad about our TN senator Bill Frist! Rita
Thank you so much for letting me know the name.
Yep, I thought this thread was about the sleazy guy selling out america -
have not seen any snakes except the ones on tv.
I found this one in a nest today when i went to feed the chickens. It's the second time I've seen it this spring.
Does anybody know what kind it is? I want to think it's a rat snake.
We've got so many people around here who let their cats roam so a snake is a rare find anymore.
Whenever I did come across a garter snake I'd take it to school with me to show my kids.
Yes, people still know me as the lady with the snake in her pocket.
AACK! nothing like scrolling down to see that lol. ya ought to warn a girl
Nicole (who is thinking I better warn my daughter about reaching blindly into chicken nest boxes.....)
Looks like it might be a Texas Lyre Snake it seems alittle darker than the pic here but kinda looks like it.
We're always overjoyed to see the first snake of the year! To us he is the "Spring Snake", the guy that tells us that Winter is over. Saw ours two days ago so it's time to plant the tomatoes. Hope you all see yours soon!! :bouncy:
Maybe a water snake, but I don't know if any are native to your area. Here's some from Florida:
Looks like a plain little corn snake to me, AKA red rat snake.
Harmless, and great on rats and mice. Cost= an egg now and then, but cheap for the rodents he rids you of.
Westwood, 5 grown ringnecks would fit in an egg shell. I don't think they are eating any eggs larger than a hummingdird's.
Four foot long rat snake in the coop today, coiled around the roost above the nests. Had to take care of him, I have a lot of little birds and don't want to donate them for snake dinner. Neighbor saw a water moccasin yesterday.
I haven't seen any snakes,but I did see a lizard! Close enough
