It did go through a number of interesting color changes, with yellow/green being the predominate color scheme. He liked to whine about it a lot, and I always told him it was payback for killing the black snake that would have keep the copper heads away.
LOL, good on Ya!!

Consider yourself blessed and then go on with your business, as the snake will go on with its if you simply leave it alone.

Do not give it a name or coax it inside for a snack...just walk away and both you and the snake will be happier for it..

hahahha... you are soo funny!!!! I am so like you I HATE SNAKES!!!!! or anything that slides along the ground.. blurgh!

well, so far, all ive seen in my parents back yard are black garden snakes.. baby ones.. bc by the time my dad spread the news... the HEAD WAS CHOPPED OFF.. so maybe three news in the last ten years. and we live in the city.

I would definately, recommend carrying some type of shovel with you at all times. keep in mind snakes are scared of humans. At least that's what the guys say, whatever. haha. sorry not much help.. I'm just a stylist. I love the outdoors too but if I had a rifle, it would be friendly fire. kekeke

I live on approx an acre of land with lots of pine trees. What am supposed to do other than run? What can I buy to prevent snakes from coming on my property? Should I send my husband to "how to kill a snake class". Do I need to buy a hoe? The snakes I'm used to seeing are behind glass at the zoo.
