That's the real deal.  I've seen the insides of their mouth where it was pink also.

Careful.  I know where you live!  I might just have to place a cache inside a hollowed out stick under the shrub in your front yard.  :)

I almost jumped out of my loin clothe today when my Bride told me I was standing beside this snake at: GC3W9KJ. It was only about 18 inches long and very defensive.  Texas brown snake.

When .Jpeg, Kevfan (my nephew) and I were going for the Element series, we saw five snakes in one outing.  We called it a day after the 5th!  Now that I think about it, I seem to have a plethora of snake photos in my geocaching gallery.  I also have a wicked looking scorpion in another picture.  We just have to remember, we are in their territory.

why do i read this thread?  i hate snakes.  last time i was at martin dies state park, i nearly stepped on a good sized one while paying attention to my compass... that was late november when it was in the 30's.  i'm headed up there today and it's nice and warm and my pint-sized caching companion won't be on the trail with me to say "hey mom.  um.  there's a snake next to your foot."

If he's not there you'll probably never even notice.  Which is probably better for you and the snake.  ;)

so... I still had a snake encounter at Martin Dies, even without my sidekick.  this time, I had two muggle scout moms with me on a 3.5 mile hike and the one just starts pointing and sputtering.  never says "snake" until we've all stopped.  copperhead crossing the trail a few feet in front of us.  it was at least 4 ft long and we just let it take it's sweet time slithering across, making sure it was good and gone into the trees.

 

a few hours later, I found out that the redhead was hiking with his patrol on the same trail and crossed paths with a copperhead.  same one?  maybe...

Dang, you should have captured that one, as it was almost 11 inches longer than the world record!  :angel:

You should put a cache inside the shed snake skin.

The cache is right below it.

Green-eyed, it's time to trade in those heels for hiking boots and a snake stick!

I need the stick.  I've got hiking shoes... haven't had boots in years, but I'll probably get some again shortly.  Wore my hiking shoes on the trails this weekend while camping though.  Didn't deter the *#&@! chiggers and neither did my eau de Deep Woods Off that I was coated in. 

 

One of these rainy/muddy days, I'm going out in my other boots for you and taking a picture.  ::)
