    Local story of a rattlesnake bite to finger. Not good.

    I came very close to that happening to me. These prairie rattlers look nearly identical to the local "blow snake" or "bull snake" that are extremely common in this area. I have caught those snakes my whole life - I just put on a leather glove and grab them. They bite you but it doesn't hurt much through the glove. The only thing that threw me off was the unique stripe over the eyes. Glad I noticed it! I nearly reached back and grabbed it.

    Unfortunately this was in city limits, so busting him with my AR-15 would have raised a few eyebrows in the neighborhood and got me in trouble with the popos.

    I better make sure I don't misrepresent my hometown. We here in Taylor/Snowflake AZ are predominately gun lovers, liberty lovers, and don't-tread-on-me types. If my new home were about 100 yards east of its current location, I could have legally shot the snake.

    Fortunately we have had no rattlers or moccasins show up in our garage but rat/chicken and king snakes we have.With the pond,creek and pool close by we also see a lot of water snakes. We have seen a couple of moccasins in the pool but they were delt with accordingly.

    This guy pretends to be a rattler. Yesterday was the 4th time I have relocated him out of my yard. I dont want to issue termination but wife is giving me no choice. bf989bc1dd2c66de1df43ad9d039f1ad.jpg

    I haven't seen a snake of any kind in years! That's one of the perks you get from snow. :)
