When he disappeared under the surface, I was really hoping he was not coming to bite...didn't see him again thankfully.
Where was this? OB, FLA
No Matt, I am in Austin Texas.
We've got water moccasins, rattlesnakes, coral snakes and copperhead's here, but in 20 years living here I've never had a problem.
The State of Texas is home to 15 potentially dangerous snake species or subspecies, with six different species of rattlesnakes.
I had to kill a rattlesnake in my back yard two weeks ago.
My dog was circling it and barking at it and it was dark outside, so the rattler had to die, don't want the dogs getting bitten, anti venom is really expensive.
I catch the smaller ones and take them to a spot further off into the woods about a half mile away.
