This and other encounters with spiders have made me more interested in these beautiful and mysterious animals and suspect they're far more intelligent—or at least aware of their surroundings—than we give them credit for.

I owned a pet store as a young man and I certainly agree with your statement.  :)

Cute snake. I love the San Francisco Garter Snake - Thamnophis sirtalis tetrataenia. They are so pretty.

I wanted to, but my Mom nix that right quick. I'd bring home a snake or snapping turtle and she'd scream at me, 'Put that back where you got it!'... :D

I haven't seen a Green Snake here for a long time now. They must be getting scarce, or else are doing their best to hide from us.

I've only seen a Green Snake once. My brother lived down the street from me for a while. He'd never seen a Green before and neither had I, so when he spotted it in his yard, he sent one of his kids to get me. When I got there, I caught it and it whipped around and bit me.That's the only time I'd ever been bitten. It turned out, he had hit it with a shovel before i got there, so it was understandable why it bit me. If he'd warned me ahead time, I would have been more cautious.

Also I've never seen a Milk Snake around here. I've only seen these snakes in my yard and neighborhood: Northern Ringneck, Eastern Ribbon, Common Garter, Eastern Garter, Smooth Green, and Racer. We do have a few dangerous snakes in my area: Copperhead, Common Water, Northern Water, and Timber Rattlesnake.

We have a lot less variety here. Green - Garter - Ring-necked - Red-bellied - and rarely Ribbon ( only in two isolated areas). I have been bitten by Garters many times. Once I picked up a 3 foot 6 inch female that was giving birth at the time. She held on to me pretty good for a bit while she was birthing.

I owned a Northern Water snake for a while bought from a pet store. The last two pictures I posted above were of a wild Northern Water  Snake I found in Ontario. That one isn't poisonous.

I know they're not poisonous, but they have an anticoagulant in their saliva, which can lead you to bleed a lot. I'll edit my previous post to reflect that.

My guy from the pet store never bit me, and the one I picked up in the wild didn't get me either, so I didn't get to experience that. Would have been interesting.

We have SO MANY types of snakes in TX.  Many that are poisonous and many that are not.

A good friend of my dads taught me how to catch rattle snakes alive when I was a teenager living in the Mojave Desert outside the town of Mojave.

The Mojave green rattler will glow from a black light.  He attached black lights to the front of his jeep and we would drive around the desert roads at night.  It was real easy to see them.  Rattle snakes don't typically coil up to strike unless they feel cornered.  We would surround the snake to get it to coil up.  As soon as it did, one of us would toss a mass of chains (like the kind you would lock your bike up with) on the coiled snake.  It was at least 15-20lbs worth of chains.  The snake would be at least half covered and stuck under the weight.  It was then that we would get closer to the snake and blast a CO2 fire extinguisher for about 5 seconds at the snake.  The snake would go dormant immediately.  Then you just grab them by their neck.

My dads friend taught me how to skin them, scrape the skin to remove all the meat, tack them down and condition the skin as they dry.  He used to sell the skins for hat bands and belts if the were big enough.

Many years ago some friends and I were hanging out at Folsom Lake, and ran across some people we knew from High School, who were cooking a rattler over a fire. They tossed us some beer and a few bites of the rattler. Not bad!  To use a cliche..tasted like chicken!
