    WOW:eek: I like snakes, even own one, but geez, I don't think I'd have the guts to fool with a venomous snake.

    What breed is that?

    We mainly just have Black Racers; there was one by the front door a few days ago stalking a lizard.

    Most of ours are rat snakes - great mice catchers. Last weekend I saw the first king snake of the year.

    The local farmers are planting corn so I guess that has them moving.
