Just so y'all know.... I was cutting grass this weekend and ran across a black snake about 3 ft. Long first snake around my house in a while. My first reaction was go for the pistola.... But after all the post about snakes this summer I went against everything I was ever taught and just let it go on its merry way. I think it was the right thing to do.

That is what I think they are anyways. I used the Amphibians and Reptiles of MO Guide by Tom Johnson and MO Dept of Conservation to ID everything I find so that is what I go by most of the time.

that is awesome jerry 241...so glad to hear that.

there is a good posibility that it was a black rat snake. IMO, they are great to have around your home because they will keep mice, mole and shrew populations in check. As well as other unwanted pests.

I am thinking viper too, but the pic is hard to tell.

I have only seen them in the zoo laid out and semi concealed in natural veg. But it is rather large for one.

The pic seems to show that there may have been some alcohol consumed before the shot.

Its a gaboon viper and one of the largest I have seen, No alcohol just bad picture and both of us were very concentrated on the business end of that one she had a temper.

I wish I had all my old pictures I was able to work with some very rare and exotic reptiles some were stunning in color others were super rare and just neat to see.
