Don’t Worry – It’s Dead

Some days life up here in the mountains is exciting. Too exciting…
Hubby: “Come outside, I need to show you something.”
Me: “Okay.”
Hubby: “It’s over here”
Me: “What is it?”
Hubby: “Don’t worry, it’s dead.”
Me: “What!?”  Hubby likes to tell me crap like that just to shake me up.
Hubby: “You need to see this.”
Hubby’s Friend: “It’s really bad. But don’t worry, it’s dead.”
Hubby: “You need to see this so you know what to watch out for.”

That was not good. I didn’t want to lean over the short wall to see a dead whatever-it-was. But I did.

A headless Diamond-back Rattlesnake was still twitching.

Hubby took a picture for posterity

We have never seen a snake before today. Our neighbor said that he’s lived up here for 25 years and never seen one.

I sure hope this snake was lost.

  2. That’s a big’un! We have snakes here in our mountains, Copperheads, Rattlers, Black, Cottonmouth (I don’t need to worry too much about them as the closest water source to me is about a half mile away) and Garder Snakes. Thank goodness the really bad ones are far and few between.

  3. Every time I cut the grass, snake go slithering away. Mostly gardener snakes (or whatever they’re called). I figure so long as they’re heading in the other direction, I don’t care.
