I had to jump in on this interesting post. I hope the OP doesn't mind. @Jesusfreak101 We have tarantulas that migrate through here every couple years. The boyz out hunting the women. If I see one in a year, I'll see 10 all within a month or 2. They are always headed west and my house is in the way. I always catch them up and release them down by a creek where they have a clear path west. I really like them, just not in my house or garage! They can live like 25 years and do no harm. In my kitchen? NOT funny!
@LeafBlade12345 I'm in the IE. So Cal. I used to bring all the gopher snakes home from work (animal control) to release on my property. We had some beautiful varieties of snakes come in. 23 years here. I've never seen a rattlesnake on my property. I think I'd move out! I see them in the road and caught at work, never here. Used to eat fried rattlesnake in Fla! They were everywhere! Guess they are in Tx too!
Hi rides. That's awful. About juvenile venom, in Temecula, in a subdivison, a litter of Goldendoodle pups found a nest. 5 got bit, 3 died, 2 survived. $6000. vet bill. They sure are here.
