Gosh. You really do have to be careful where you walk. I certainly did not spot that even though I knew where to look.

Well time for a few dumb Snake jokes

My snake was very thin and sick , so I took it to the vet.
The vet took a quick look and said, Sorry, your snake
is going to die, that will be $20. I said is that all I get for $20 ?
He took the snake over to a floppy-eared rabbit, and the rabbit
pointed his ears straight up to the ceiling ...
He took it to a Black Labrador dog, and the dog stuck out his
tongue and shook its head ...
He took it to a cat, the cat opened her eyes very wide and then
shook its head violently ...
He said, "That will be $350..... $50 for the second opinion, $75
for Lab tests and $225 for the CAT scan.


A old snake goes to see his Doctor. "Doc, I need something for my eyes...can't see well these days".
The Doc fixes him up with a pair of glasses and tells him to return in 2 weeks. The snake comes back in 2 weeks and tells the doctor he's very depressed.
Doc says, "What's the problem...didn't the glasses help you?" "The glasses are fine doc, I just discovered I've been living with a water hose the past 2 years!"

There where two snakes talking. The 1st one said 'Sidney, are we the type of snakes who wrap ourselves around our prey and squeeze and crush until they're dead?
Or are we the type of snake who ambush our prey and bite them and they are poisoned and die a painful death?'.
Then the second Snake says "Why do you ask?" The 1st one replies: "I just accidentally bit my lip!"

A truck driver is heading west across the Arizona desert. He
has been driving all night, and as the sun starts to rise,
he feels the need to stop and commune with nature. He pulls
to the side of the road, parks, and walks out into the sage
brush.

As he is standing there, looking around at the beauty of the
early morn, he notices a lever sticking out of the ground.
After a few moments, he walks over, walks all the way
around, and then reaches out to grasp the lever. Just as he
does, he hears a voice say, "Don't touch that lever."

The driver jumps about two feet off the ground, and as he
comes down, he looks around. No one is to be seen. Thinking
it was just his imagination, he again reaches for the lever.
Again the voice yells, "I said don't touch that lever!"
Being more prepared, the driver senses the location of the
voice and looks down under a sage brush. There he sees a
small snake.

The driver, in much astonishment, said, "Was that you that
just spoke?"

The snake said, "Yes. I have to keep people from touching
that lever. If the lever is moved, it will be the end of the
world."

The driver, still rather astonished, said, "What is your
name? And will you talk on TV?" The snake said his name was
Nate and that he wasn't interested in going on TV; anyway,
he had to stay and watch the lever to see that it wasn't
moved. The driver said, "Look, I will get the networks to
send out camera crews. That way, you can inform the entire
world about the danger of the lever."

Nate thought that over and allowed as how there was a great
deal of sense to the idea. The driver, true to his word, got
the network camera crews out. They put on broadcasts in
which Nate warned the entire world of the dangers of moving
the lever.

A few weeks later, another truck driver was going through
the area. He was following an oil tanker, and the tanker
sprang a leak. When the driver's truck hit the slick, it
went out of control, and he found himself headed straight
for the lever. He remembered seeing Nate on the TV telling
about the lever and so he knew that if he hit it, he would
cause the world to end. He strove, with all his might to
maneuver the truck. Finally, at the last moment, he was able
to swerve, but he ran over Nate, the snake, and killed him
flat!

The truck driver was heard to say "Well, better Nate than lever."

I found the copperhead quickly!!! The only good snake is a dead snake!!I killed a baby copper head in my front yard two weeks ago, so Im sure its momma is around somewhere, my concern is for my 2yr old son who is not afraid of anything, I need to teach him about snakes since he plays in the yard. Im afraid he will try to pick one up if he sees it, Thats how I got to this forum, I was showing him scary snakes. Any suggesstions on how to make him so afraid of them he will stay away from them if he ever does see one?

I HATE snakes and spiders! Found a Black Widow in the house when we lived in Fort Worth. Couldn't sleep that night. Checked under my covers, in the sleeves and pants of my clothes, and in my shoes for weeks. Snakes, I've come across a few in my life and had to kill one with a hoe when I was 8 months pregnant. My in-laws drove up while I was doing so and had a good laugh as it was a non venomous one. Venomous or not, it was a SNAKE!

We're moving to Madison in a couple of months. Considered buying lakefront but just bought lake view. Hope none of those snakes come into my yard. Worry about my kids and dogs!

Lived in Jackson for 6 years, never seen a snake around my house. Have seen some snake skins that were shed, and my dog finds them as well. But these have been small garter snake skins, nothing dramatic.
I did once see a 6-foot snake (don't know what type) cross the cart path at Lefleurs Bluff golf course. I was walking and just turned around and went back to my car - figured it wasn't my day.

Never seen a Black Widow or Brown Recluse.

Keep your grass mowed!
It's not a guarantee, but in general snakes don't like to cross wide expanses of mowed grass, because they are exposed to predators (birds).

Teach your kids to never reach into things that they can't see!
Whether it's a pile of wood or a pile of mulch or sticks, you can't just absentmindedly reach into things down here.

And remember "Red touch Yellow, Kill a Fellow!"

You won't see a Brown Recluse in Jackson either. they are native to Texas. but you will see a widow here and there.

I walked into a widows web once and actually saw it racing towards me I swatted that thing so fast it made my head spin and quickly stepped on it..

You should probably let the folks at this site know they are wrong.
