I cant stand those sob's, thats the main reason I dont like to trap during hot weather. And we are loaded with eastern diamond back, and timber rattlers, Cotton Mouths and Copper heads mocosins. I kill every one I see, big or small.

Cool! I wish we had the saddlebacks (there's a lower alabama term for you) up this way. I love to hear one singing (as long as I have a visual on it anyways).

LATRAPPER - do you raise them? Are they Pets? Or just catch them for ADC work?

No I don't raise them. I would never attempt to make a pet of any venomous snake; although I have kept collections of them. But I don't know how to leave a snake alone!blush If I see it, I have to catch it. Most are released at the point of capture. I have been catching them since I was about six years old. My Dad was a Missouri "hillbilly". He was a carpenter, hunter, fisherman, and trapper. However, he very seldom killed anything that we couldn't use, except coyotes. Even trapping, he maintained his trap lines to always leave "seed" for the next year. He wouldn't kill venomous snakes unless they were around the house. I learned to identify venomous and non-venomous snakes at a very early age. I caught the "nice ones" and left the "bad ones" alone. I didn't catch my first venomous snake until I was about 14 years old, 1954. That was at the Okeene, Oklahoma "the oldest Rattlesnake hunt in the world". Since then I have "had" to catch every one that I was able to.

Even now, most of the venomous snakes that I catch are released (with permission) in very rural areas. The population of snakes is decreasing rapidly around here. I don't know why but have my suspicion that it is due to chemical use. I haven't seen a green snake in about five years and have only seen a couple of Eastern Whip Snakes each of the past few years. This same reduction in population goes for most other species of snakes too.

Although I am a NWCO, I do comply with State laws and regulations, and my permit requirements.. Some critters are released, some aren't.

The similarly patterned snakes are Timber Rattlesnakes the other is an Eastern Diamondback. Since I don't know exactly where you are located in the state, I don't know if the Eastern Diamondback is found around you. I am sure that you have Cottonmouths, Timbers, Copperheads, and possibly Coral Snakes. I have only caught two Coral Snakes around here though.

I try to provide education to all of my customers that call about snake problems. The snakes are there only because favorable habitat exists in most instances. Now, if I find a Cottonmouth near a beaver trap; all bets are off. whistle

yeah i see all kinds of rattler's and water snakes. mostly the mocosin's are cottonmouths, but have killed plenty of copperheads, but not as many as cotton's. And for the rattler's mostly are the timbers but some estern's. they are everywhere around here. I saw a big rattler in the road last night, all of this hot weather has them moving at night, from what i have seen lately.
