Laying in the road in front of my driveway. Kids enjoyed seeing him.
Good ol hognose snake, right?
My 6 year old boy found 2 black snakes beside the creek yesterday.
I've never seen one of those before. Weird looking head
Yep or as I’ve always heard them called spread heads. I see them a lot on my farm for some reason.
Defense mechanism. Also play dead.
I’ve killed 5 so far
That's a "Spread Adder" snake.
We called em hog snakes growing up. Can scare the life out of you if you aren't aware of what they are. That head deal is a great defense mechanism for humans. I've seen two already this year turkey hunting, a black snake and a garter snake.
Seems it has several names. I seen one on my farm a few years ago and thought it was a black snake, me sitting in the shade drinking a beer thought it would be fun to play with it. I poked it with a stick and it raised up and flared the head out and hissed at me, I left it alone and went back to my seat in the shade. I knew what it was but it was jet black and the only one I have ever seen, I don't kill snakes that are not poisonous unless they are bothering me pretty bad.
That is one mean looking snake . I would have shot first and seen what it was latter . There is no poisonous snakes where I live . I leave my black snakes alone in my barns for rodent killers .
We always called them "Blowing Vipers". I haven't seen one in a few years.
Wife and I walked up on this last week while picking our 1 yellow morel for the day.
you find any more drop them off at my shop I'm battling rats right now and could use some snakes, they freak some people out but I like having them around,I never kill them
