Love black racers.  Wish I had one, my cats are useless at anti-rodent patrol.

A black racer spooked a horse I was riding.  Horse tried to throw me, and then we went on quite a ride.  That was the last time I rode... thanks a lot, snek!

I have an irrational fear of snakes, but appreciate their importance.  I also appreciate this lady leaving them be to disappear and do their thing, rather than 'disposing' of them on the spot.

That one always got a laugh out of me.

Not my friends though.

Yup, most snakes will fark off once you do the same. I get startled by them all the time while doing yard work (mostly black racers but on occasion an eastern diamond back will find its way into my yard. After the initial starring contest - they too will fark off once you leave the area). One of my neighbors confessed they had a rat problem in their garage and also that they kill any snakes on sight. After the dumbfounded look I gave them I explained why they shouldn't kill the snakes. They didn't believe me. I don't have a rat problem.

Repeat. We already had a thread about a black racer this morning, he had his kid in the car.

Am I the only one who read the word "snakes" and immediately though of trial lawyers and politicians?

I'm just glad she didn't find ten bowling balls because the lede would have been totally inappropriate in today's political climate.

This on both post.  I've known too many people who see a snake and instantly "GOTDAMN IT'S A COBRAMAMBACOTTONRATTLERMOCCASSON" "the most poisoness[sic] snake in the world" and immediately run for the nearest sharp thing to kill it.  When usually it's just a harmless snake minding its own business.

She missed a great opportunity. She could have sold them for $5 or $10 each.

This is where they have snakes in the sheriff's department... How could she not recognize them. They have badges and guns and everything

These just hatched, they need to go through training before getting their badges, guns, etc...

The funniest part is that rattlesnakes give birth to live young, they don't lay eggs.

Nasty little bastards! I used to find them in my garden and I'd have to shoo them off, but the real annoyance was when I'd be picking blackberries and the damn things would come out of the bush and greet my eyeballs. Since I was in rattler country it always was a nanosecond from making me shart myself. Damn things were up high hoping for birds.
