    Wow. I have fed them worms but never a snake. Is that snake pretty small? Could you tell if he killed it or was already dead.

    It was already dead, a little over a foot long and about as big around as a medicine bottle, we had ran it over in our driveway so I tossed it in the woods, came back 5 mins later to show my wife and it had eaten the head and about 4 inches of its body

    I don’t know about eating a snake but I can tell you they can withstand cold better than we think. About 4-5 years ago I was in the deer stand and it was cold as all get out plus it had recently snowed and there were still spots here and there. I kept hearing something below my stand in the leaves and never could find it. Finally I saw leaves moving around an old fall down and there were two box turtles digging away. I don’t know if they were just burrowing in for the winter or what but they they hung around and made noise all morning.

    I've never seen one eat a Copperhead, but I've seen 2 terrapins have wild sex a couple of times. Strangely, it was kind of arousing to me to hear that grunting, and shells banging together simultaneously... but I was younger.
