X3 juvenile grey rat snake.
This is an excellent Facebook group to join us you frequent it.
thanks Y'all! I'll load it up and take it down the road a ways and let it go.
Hate the head, looks near triangular.
That doesn’t mean anything. Almost any snake will flatten its head to appear exactly as that. A grey rat snake and many other non-venomous species will rattle their tails against leaves to try and give the appearance of a rattler. They’re both defensive mechanisms.
Check out the head on this harmless northern diamondback watersnake. Most all of your watersnakes have triangular heads naturally.
Cuddly noodle, not danger noodle.
All venomous snakes in N America have a diamond shaped pupil. Non-venomous snakes in N America have a round pupil. Coral snakes are red next to yellow kill a fella. Don't know about there pupil.
Well there you go , art not be no trouble to see their pupil. LMOA
Corals have round pupils but the rest of the venomous pit vipers normally have elliptical shaped except when they are dilated in low light conditions. Make sure you carry a flashlight to shine in their eyes ha.
Say Bub ... here's a magnifying glass ... would you mind checking that snake's pupils for me .... uhhhh .... I forgot my glasses.
I'll stand right over here and thanks a bunch.
After they are dead is what I meant. I seen people call watersnakes and even cowsuckers, copperheads! Pupil is 100% foolproof id.
Well, spew my beer! thay say copperheads smell like cucumbers. I dont know, i never been close enough to smell one.
i never worry about having dry eyes here.
other than coral snakes, which are quite obvious, our bad snakes do not have round pupils. quite easy to identify.
