(Daily Mail)   It's spring in Canada, which means you can't even turn around without without running into a ball of hundreds of writhing snakes bigger than your head trying desperately to mate with a single female. Warning: link has snakes   (dailymail.co.uk) divider line 27

SumoJeb: It is Spring here? I hadn't noticed. My view must be obstructed by all this snow and ice.


Agreed.  It was melty here today, but Winter Part IV is due to arrive with 15cm of snow by the end of the week.

meow said the dog: Psst. Not just Canada. You are welcome.


That is quite possibly the most coherent thing I've seen you say.

And I trust nothing from Canada. They are too nice, nobody is that nice unless they are hiding something. I bet their snakes apologize too!

I like snakes but my paternal grandfather was ophidiophobic and was creeped out even by toy snakes. It thought it was because he was a French Roman Catholic but it turns out the family was French and Protestant for the last five generations, so that can't have been it.

Snakes are not slimy, they are leathery and dry. Most species are not venomous and the worst small snakes can do is give you a nip as they have no teeth.

When I was a child, I used to enjoy catching and releasing snakes, frogs, salamanders, toads, tadpoles, crayfish, small fish, lamprey eels, wait, what? Yes, eels when they were about the size of pencils.

I think I inherited my love of nature from my grandfathers. It's good to know the life and world around you. I think children should learn to identify and understand the plants, animals and rocks around where they live to better appreciate how the world works and our place in it.

Sadly, most children think milk comes in bottles, bags or boxes from the supermarket and don't necessarily connect the stuff to cows.

I live downtown but there's plenty of wildlife around. I've seen more wildlife on the way to work here than I used to see when I lived in the country, except ,of course, for deer, moose, bears, etc., which are seldom seen here because we are uphill and those animals head downhill towards water when they are lost.

They do fall into the swimming pools in the suburbs a lot, however.

My Great-Aunt lived in an old farm house with a field stone basement dating to the 18th century or possibly early 19th. Her son was working on the place now and then when he could find time so some of the eletrical plates were open.

My Mother and Aunt were visiting her one day when a snake came slithering down the bannister. My Aunt and Great-Aunt were up on the furniture in no time so my Mother had to catch the snake and release it. It helps to be a bit of Tom Boy in your youth.

The house had a snake pit somewhere, presumably just outside the field stone walls and the snakes could get into the walls. As mentioned above, this is quite common. Modern houses are more air-tight so snakes are less likely to get into them, but old houses with cellars are popular with the snakes (and bees, etc.).

There's been many cases of people being over run by snakes or finding the walls and ceilings sweating honey.

Mmmmm ... wall honey.

Ceiling cat can not taste sugar.

Since that would translate to "Oh Yes!" repeated by all the snakes in the snake orgy, that would probably mark the first time that phrase has been used correctly on FARK.


That's doubly true, because as far as I can tell, only tentacular-shaped things enjoy Japanese sex.

That is fascinating. Where did you get that picture? I thought about GISing but I'm sure the results would probably flag my IT department... ha.

It looks like they've got anesthetic going? (The tube.) I never would have thought of ticks on snakes.

This--garter snakes are probably one of the more beneficial, and certainly the least harmful to humans, of any snakes.  (Garter snakes are TINY.  A baby mouse or a young chipmunk is a huge meal for 'em.)

parazen: I went on an overnight horseback trip when I was a kid. While my family was setting up camp, I wandered to the nearby lakeside, and saw a snake! Then two snakes, then five, then twenty, and then at the water's edge I saw what looked like a bowling ball made entirely of snakes. So, I picked it up, carried it back to the middle of camp. Pulled in a deep breath, and screamed.

Sigh, good times.


You must have lived in Montana at the time.  Been there, done something stupid like that ;)

There are snakes in Manitoba, not Canada. If Manitoba dropped off the face of the earth it would take months for anyone to realize it. Weeks for an actual Manitoban.

fun fact there are lots of old abandoned homes on the Prairies of Saskatchewan and Manitoba that turn into these snake pits, for the simple reason that these are holes in the ground where they can congregate.  I remember my dad telling me of a friend of his who went to excavate a basement for his house and found one.

bucket after bucket of snakes.

They aren't poisonous or anything but thousands of snakes.

Those taste like ass, but the damn things are kind of cool to eat after a baking. Overdo it and it's a hellish delerium, but with the proper dose six hours of euphoria and everything looking the wrong size is kind of fun. At slightly higher doses they worked for insomnia as well, at least for me, other folks might be distracted by the psychoactive effects. I used to mix dried caps with my pot, because for some reason the stuff works when smoking it unlike psilocybe species. Apparently it passes mostly unchanged and folks can get high off your piss after too, but we never tried that since they're cheap as dirt anyways. I have a few large dried amanita pantherina somewhere around here, but I'm too edgy about it to take them considering we were pulling amanita ocreata("death angels") from the same area, but in theory they should do about the same.

I had a buddy who was into mycology, I have quite a few deadly dried specimens lying around. I used to press poisonous plants too, it's an odd hobby but it's interesting enough and only takes a few minutes out of my day once in awhile. I still think it's kind of cool to open a book and go "here's nightshade, here's brugmansia, here's some hemlock... etc."
