can you identify this snake?

Filed under: Misc — Freddie Keel @ 6:56 am

It was a road kill in the Conroe, Texas area.

The photo is all the information available.

It appears the head was smashed.

I can not detect any rattlers on the tail.

These guys are starting their International Aluminum Can Collection business.

So far they have collected about one pound of cans.

Brett can smash the cans.

Luke just swings on the handle of the ‘smasher’.

snake bitten today

I had just finished with my nite time snack

and was walking out to our pier

to discard the remaining food in the lake to feed the fish.

I was wearing a long sleeve shirt.

The path to our fishing pier is adjacent to a boat storage area.

I thought my right arm had gotten into a fishing line with a hook.

But when I glanced  down this snake was attached to my arm.

His teeth were hung in the sleeve of my shirt.

I shook him loose and continued walking out on the pier.

He coiled up on a rafter.


I got a stick and proceeded to deal him some misery.

Nearby we have several Purple Martin houses.

The birds were nervous and chattering.

They had watched him bite me

and was watching me get even.


This is the six foot chicken snake that made the mistake of biting me.

And he paid the ultimate price.

Glad you are alright. Better learn to look ahead when walking and pay attention.
Hope ya’ll will be happy at the new home. Looks like the grandkids had a great Spring Break with you.

It wouldn’t have mattered if it was poisonous or not. I would have had a stroke, passed out, fell in the lake and drown!!
