Simple question, what kind of snake is this? Even though I had my AK 47 with me, the snake was left alive and in one piece.

The snake was about 4 feet long.

Location: East Texas

Date: April 26th, 2008

It would have been more like

"Die you demon from HELL!!" - KABoom, KAboom, KAboom. I only had about 15 rounds in the AK. So I could have only blasted him into about 15, 16, 17 pieces.

But its so much more fun to beat it to death and put it on the neighbors porch.They might not talk to you for a long time after this,but hey you'll get a chuckle out of it.

There is only 2 kinds of snakes,

Alive ones and dead ones :D

Before you killed it i'm guessing its a Chicken Snake?

I look at the head. If it's not a pit viper and poisionus, then I would most likely leave it alone. However, if it were in/near my home I would kill it no matter . Would scare the wife to death.

Learning the good snakes from the dangerous snakes is an essential skill and will someday pay off big time.

I always got great joy out of finding one then trying to identify it.

One of my friends at work is scared to death of anything that lacks visible legs, slithers and comes with a forked tongue......he refers to all of them as CopperHeaded Water Rattlers. LOL

Education, education, education. I dont want to patronise here but snakes have a place in the ecology and to kill indiscriminately is only to upset the ballance, suddenly you have rats every where and nothing to controll them, come on guys whats the matter with you all surely a field guide will put minds to rest here.
