Yep, rattlesnake. Seven rattles.

He's nice and fat. Was under the tractor, thank God the kids were not home yet from school, or they would have been out there...

I know why it's around, no dogs. My dog died this past winter and the neighbors did as well. The other two neighbors dogs do not come around our home.

I may have to get another puppy. At least when we had dogs we never saw snakes, now that they are gone, the first one we kill is a rattlesnake! :eek:

Now what did that snake ever do to you?:rolleyes: "jk"

I have not seen a rattler in years, (knock on wood ;)) and that was when we were living in W. Va. Cottonmouth, copperhead and black snakes are what we have to deal with around here.

On a side note my hubby and his Grandpa used to live hunt rattlers for a certain kind of church, up on the mountain. :eek: Gives me a chill to think about hubby doing that ... or the church folk for that matter. (but to each their own.)

Where I live in PA we have copperheads but I've never seen one in the wild. And living on a farm I spend plenty of time out and about. Fortunately, they're not that plentiful in my area.

The Copperheads are scary. We lived in SE Kentucky for 6 years, and I tell you what, I'd take a rattler any day. At least they give a warning. The copperheads blend in and lay quietly in the leaves...

Glad no one got hurt, DJgang!

and blob...thanks for the recipe! Nice touch! :D

Harley... :lolsmash:

Here's another one, to help lighten the mood:
A old snake goes to see his Doctor. “Doc, I need something for my eyes…can’t see well these days”. The Doc fixes him up with a pair of glasses and tells him to return in 2 weeks. The snake comes back in 2 weeks and tells the doctor he’s very depressed. Doc says, “What’s the problem…didn’t the glasses help you?” “The glasses are fine doc, I just discovered I’ve been living with a water hose the past 2 years!”
