Some of you guys may have seen this. 45 rattle snakes under a house here in Texas. There’s video of the guys removing them. Yikes! Just burn the damn house down.

Bit extreme, Lane, but I'm with you. I do not like snakes...I think Indiana Jones instilled that in me....

It is truly like Raiders of the Lost Arc under there, isn’t it?

I watched the video and was wondering how the snake removers charge their services. If by the hour or by the snake, that was an expensive proposition. If $100 per snake and 45 snakes, would I be willing to do the same job to earn enough to buy the new spring drive marine master or something similar? I think not. But would I come up with the funds if I had to have that many damn snakes removed from my house? Yes, yes I would.

Grew up in a rural area of northern México, about an hour south of McAllen, rattle snakes everywhere and would go inside the house on occasion, specially during winter months. Would eat them as jerky, guisados, chiles rellenos, etc. Main reason to wear boots at all times. Had a pit bull that bit the mailman in McAllen and my aunt brought to us before the law put him down. Best dog I ever had, he would kill rattle snakes, it was a sight to behold!
It was fun growing up in the country riding novillos, etc. Would love to visit but too risky as cartels control the area now, they control everything.

Wow, that’s cool Ray! I can’t imagine a pit bull and rattler going at it, but I’d love to see it. I hope you can make it back to visit someday. I tasted some fried rattlesnake several years ago at the Sweetwater rattlesnake roundup. Can’t say it was my favorite, but like many other things, I bet it’s much better when it’s cooked properly.

Hopefully they’re well on their way to becoming boots, wallets, etc.

They're not loners. If you see 1 there's plenty more around. The 1st pic is a Timber Rattler in my yard a couple of years ago, about 6ft. I don't mess with these, or any other snakes unless I have to. The other pic is my son and I evicting a 6-7ft Rat Snake, they can't be living in the house.

You’re a better man than me, Jerry. If I saw that dude in the yard, believe I’d reach for something that shoots a little more lethal than just pictures.

PS: this is my 400th post! Hooray! Only need about 28,000 more to catch up with Tiger John B.

Heard this the other day; if Adam and Eve had been Cajun we wouldn’t be in this mess.

Amen, brother. Made me laugh again. I try to leave the Garters and Blue Racers alone, but my yard is my yard. My kids have to play outside sometime. I give the rattlers their space when I'm in their space, and otherwise I buy shot-shells - or wield a spade.

This had me in tears laughing

You know that here in southeast Asia, many people believe ingesting snake venom cures arthritis and many other ailments.
