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 !


And here I am scared of a little ol' Garter Snake!

count me in for snake dislike. I prefer to see the bears raiding my feeders and having to chase them back into the woods(common in spring and fall) rather than be surprised by a snake slithering. Not logical at all...

I was bitten by a poisonous snake in Vt as a kid and have been wary of em ever since.
Black widow spiders creep me out more, though and are more of a threat day to day in my gardens.

Once I saw big ole toad crawling slowly with a weird look on it's face. As it took more steps I realized a snake had 1/2 of the poor toad in its mouth and a slow kill was taking place. I chose to work on the other side of the garden the rest of the day, didn't want to intervene or witness more that I had already.

We have King Cobras in India. They like to hide in the bathroom.

Yes, I thought that might be an answer, but I only know about that from "Rikki Tikki Tavi" by Kipling...

Do people really employ mogeese (Is it mongeese or mongooses?) in households to kill Cobras?

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


www.precisiongeophysical.com/

here is the companys website, It's too complicated to explain, but it's how you find gas and oil deposits so the drilling companys know where to drill

send them an e-mail and tell them "no more fracking" !
they dont do fracking themselves but without the siesmic work the drilling companys cant drill.

these guys are the biggest jerks in the world ! I could talk for a month telling you tales of flagrant employee abuse and their all true ! The worst job I ever had bar none !
