Just got the crap scared out of me by a snake

#14435 3 years, 6 months ago
It's dusk here and all the birds have left the feeders for the day so I figured it'd be a good time to fill them with seed. I was carefully pouring some sunflower seeds into the feeder that's right next to the living room window when I noticed movement by my right foot. I looked down and saw it was a big, nasty-looking garter snake! I jumped back, dropped the feeder, seeds flew everywhere.

I ran inside and my wife and 8-year-old daughter were in hysterics. They're taunting me even as I type this.

I hate snakes. Something without legs shouldn't be able to move that fast. Anyone else share this phobia?

I don't love snakes, but not really afraid of them. I'd rather they didn't surprise me. Seems kind of early for snakes.
I can't come down, it's plain to see.

>>>Seems kind of early for snakes

Tell that to the one outside waiting for me to leave for work in the morning!

Funny, I just spent an hour riding in a car with my niece who was holding a bag full of crickets for her lizard... could not look in her direction- not liking masses of creepy crawlies of any kind!!! Sorry to hear about your snake fright, Lynx- but good thing it wasn't a larger species- your family might have had to send out a search party ;o)

I used to do Cross Country Siesmic Prospectimg
We went to Maryland in the summer of '97 working at Dan's Mt. State Park.
There are more Timber Rattlers there than anywhere else in the country and you always seem to find them in spots where you can't defend yourself like on a cliffside or in the middle of deadfall
what a pain in the ass !

Now poisonous snakes scare me. The non poisonous ones just creep me out a little.

what exactly is "Seismic Prospecting?" I'm a science/nature-freak and that sounds interesting.
