Getting to be that time of the year. I didn't see him till it was around the fig trees. Of course every animal had to come check it out.
Thank goodness the dogs were inside at the time.
It's about a 3 to 4 ft. long water moccasin, they are very beautiful snakes.
I got all of my chickens to the other side of the yard,with some treats..... my polish roo had to come check it out.



I poured some water on him,figured he was thirsty


heading to the bayou,with Taz & K-puss looking on


Thanks for looking

That is one fat snake! I like snakes, but we never see them that big around here. I think I would
if i saw one that big in my yard.

And aren't those things super deadly??

Ohhhhhhhh my!!
I would have run away screaming like a little girl...waite, I am a girl...but I would have still run away screaming. I can handle seeing the small ribbon snakes we get here...but THAT would freak me out!

I respect your calmness about it. I would have found it fascinating but I would have been too afraid to get near it. I like snakes well enough, but preffer them from a distance. Thank you for the picture, it was neat to see.
