Re: What Kind of Snake is This?
I found one like that under my overhead garage door when I opened it a few years ago,it was a tiny one,about the same size & diameter of a pencil...They must like the area under the door ,for shade and the bugs that crawl under there!..
I'd seen quite a few snakes in my time,but I had to google to find out what kind it was..
I've seen and caught garter snakes,milk snakes,corn or rat snakes,seen a copperhead and a water mocasin in Fitchburg when I was a kid,and only one hog nosed snake..but I'd never seen a ring snake before..the google info on it said they are fairly rare,and I think maybe an endangered species..it said they usually don't grow that long or thick unlike garter snakes..
I wish I had a predator that would eat the HUGE wood spiders I get here--back on Monday I used a electric hedge trimmer to chop down weeds along the foundation in front of my house--they grew so thick the weed whacker wasn't working too good..
As soon as I started trimming next to the foundation,this tarantula sized monster spider scrambles up the wall,stops halfway and stares me down,as if to say "go ahead,maybe I'll leap right on you,maybe I wont"..had them do that before and creep me out..
Then I see a wasp under the bay window,making a new nest--so I go get the wasp spray to soak the wasp & nest and Mr.Spider--but the spider vanished in the 30 seconds it took me to retrieve the wasp spray and return..I was pretty nervous the rest of the time cutting those weeds down..I hate those friggin spiders!..
