    I was able to retrieve the egg with no problem. The snake had just started. There were two other snake in the coop doing their courtship dance. No one was killed.

    We have garter snakes, but those are just big earthworms if you ask me. I know supposedly there are small rattlers in Michigan, but those are way up north...far from me....I hope.

    So, is that just a "garder" snake or something bigger and "badder"?
