For some reason there are a ton of snakes in our yard this summer (just little gardner snakes, nothing huge). There arent quite as many now as there had been....but a few weeks ago we would walk in our backyard and step on snakes quite frequently.

We even have a family living in my DD's sandbox!!! One day we opened it and found 5 snakes inside!!

I never stepped on one, but growing up in the middle of the desert, I had quite a few near misses with these guys:

In all my years in Australia I only saw a handful of snakes and only came a few feet away from a snake as a kid. I would have died. You must live way up north to see a snake this time of year.

I jumped so high!! I almost hyperventilated!! Then I ran home and grabbed my 17 yr old & 15 yr old to see if we could find it to take a picture, but it had gone either under our neighbors car or into their shed. I left them a note.

It looked like the snakes in the picture but without the rattle, so I am not sure what kind it was. It definitely had patterns all over. It was about 8-10cm (3-4")in diameter and about a meter (yard 1/2) long, if anyone has any idea? I didn't faze it in the least, even though my foot was still on it when I looked down. I'm still freaked... Eeeekkk...!!

Alyssamd24, I couldn't do a family of snakes anywhere near me....uggg!! I am in awe..

h0peless and tired girl cool pics. Hopefully taken with the biggest zoom lens known to mankind

Rattlers are super common where we live. So our dog went through "snake training." I'm so afraid of them it's the part of obedience training my dog aced on the first try! :D

I've almost stepped on rattlers twice. One was torpid, as it was early on a cool morning, but the other was motivating across my path. I was walking in Saguaro National Park in Tucson and arguing on the phone with the X about who-knows-what.

It's amazing how well they camouflage themselves.


I solemnly swear that I am up to no good.

wontdefineme, When I was a kid I almost ran over a tiger snake on my bike in Tazzie. Any smart Aussie has a healthy respect and fear of snakes!! And spiders. I still check my bed every night...my American kids think I'm crazy....!

Ack!! I am glad you lived to tell, Lostly. I'm not snake phobic, but that presumes 100 percent remove of all snakes. All bets are off if I ever encounter one, save the odd pet ball python someone else's kid might possess.

Trac-Fone still tells the tale ("tale" being the operative word) of his near-miss while lawn mowing in Houston. Brilliant ruse for avoiding all lawn care thereafter. Positively brilliant.

The closest we came to a snake incident (and "close," it was not) was the morning when toddler DD, scampering out to find her Easter basket (indoors!) stepped on a gigantic visiting slug. (I have no idea wherefore a slug chose to ooze right on through our living room that day and none other, ever.)

That was 23 years ago. I can still see the look on her face. And she has not yet fully recovered from the trauma.

Yikes!
Recently I was loading the washer. I reach down to pick up some clothes and see a brown drawstring. Except we do not own anything with a brown drawstring. And then it moved. And I Screamed!
I had dd stand in hallway with a broom to prevent it from escaping into the main part of the house while I tried to capture/kill? It with no luck. It slithered under something I could not move. We ended up taping the bottom of the laundry room door shut for a day until I finally was able to get it out of the house!
Ick!

I guess I won't mention how my son's pet king snake got loose and was missing in the house for several weeks. Late one night I saw him poking his head out from under the sofa. Naw, I won't mention that...

Scary stories! I have cats - feral cats outside so I am NOT bothered with snakes. Snakes are afraid of cats, especially feral cats. IF one would manage to ever get through the cat line, I have my Mom. She is a snake-killing woman. She keeps old fashioned post-hole diggers handy and kills them and then just keeps chopping with the diggers until she has a hole and buries them right where they met their fate. She hasn't had to do any snake-killing since ferals chose to live here.
