Yeah, I'll stay away from the poisonous ones.  Not a problem here in MI.

Never been bitten, but I did have a garder snake poop on me once.  I think I'd rather be bitten.

Holy smokin' snakes!!!  Jerry and Rick, you both are completely and 100% out of your minds (but both your stories brought that smile to my face, along with that squeeky chuckle, hee, hee,  Wink Smiley Smiley).

I thank my lucky stars we don't have big snakes around here.  Personally, the only snake I have ever seen is that big fat ol' gardner snake that used to bask in the sun infront of my greenhouse on the gravel.  This particular greenhouse is not there anymore, nor is the old snake.  Don't know where it went, but haven't seen it in years.  Kind of sad.  Have a beautiful, greatest of days.

I've had a few snakes. We caught them up in the Everglades when I worked there for a short while. All kinds of snakes. Yellow rats, 7' long, lots of water snakes and pygme rattlers. Lots of legless lizards there too, they were cool. I was in Baton Rouge, while attending L.S.U. and was looking for a ball python. This guy had one in the paper, I wound up not buying it from him, cause it wasn't that pretty of a snake. Anyway, the guy had a 14 and a half foot Burmese python. Now that thing was big. Weighed like 200lbs. You should have seen it slither around on his floor, it was crazy. He fed it rabbits. As for as snakes pooping on you, its a defense mechanism, and yes it is foul smelling! Jerry, I've had several different types of snakes try and steal fish off stringers while fishing, some cottonmouths, mostly water snakes though. Cottonmouths are vicious, don't accidentally step on one, they are unforgiving.

Been there pooped on, JP

JP, interesting accounts of the snakes.  Now, something I don't get is -- isn't a legless lizard a snake?  How could it be anything else.  Tell that tale, hee, hee.

I can't stand snake poo, it really reaks for sure.  Been there, done that, even the little gardner snakes pack a powerful stink.  Wonder how big a big snake poo would be and how much it would stink, hee, hee.  Have a wonderful and greatest of days, Cindi

Legless lizards are snake like, lizards.
