It was curled in a tight ball under some tomatoes. I am at war. First step - mow. .
Oh, Helen -- please be careful!!
It is very fat. I am wondering if it is full of babies.
Well, it sorta has that "Madonna Smile" --
The snake was fat so I cut it open to see what was inside- eleven baby snakes.
Well now you've gotten rid of 13 so far. You're a brave woman Helen.
I'm avoiding that photo though, kinda gross. lol
I sure do I admire you for having the fortitude to follow your curiousity, Helen. You have saved yourself a lot of possible future grief. Way to go!
How many more mamas are out there. I can see a possible population explosion.
Helen, I keep forgetting to hit send when I comment. Maybe I can do it this morning!
I can't believe you did that....you have more nerve than I do....I hope you are wearing boots and long pants when you garden......and gloves.
I was pulling a few weeds yesterday without gloves and your pictures of Copperheads came to mind;
I stopped, got my gloves before I pulled any more.
Glenda I don't think you have to worry if you don't see copperheads on your road in fall or laying around your yard in the evening. I have very ideal copperhead habitat. I am disassembling my raised bed made of wood blocks that were supposed to be for fire wood. Piles of wood bring copperheads. I don't have tin laying around but the people who for some reason look for snakes make piles of barn metal roof and boards. I have the blocks and boards part of the copperhead attracting set up.
