It was a tongue in cheek reference to this critter in Vietnam that many troops who humped there talked about.What's a two step snake ?
Snakes benefit us by keeping rat and mice populations in control since these rodents can multiply rapidly spreading disease and destroying stores of food. Some species of snakes like the King Snake kill venomous snakes that could harm us....I LOVE SNAKES!
Oh you brought back some memories for sure, I remember the ground pounders talking about those snakes. I was happy in the air....It was a tongue in cheek reference to his critter in Vietnam that many troops who humped there talked about.
Two-step Snake. During the Vietnam War, American soldiers called this Snake, Two-step Snake as they are highly venomous and that the person bitten are likely to die within 2 steps, however this is not true although this Snake is highly venomous. They are more known as Many-banded Krait...www.jungledragon.com
Cat do that better, You obviously never had snake in your farms. They bit your cows and gulp as much chicken eggs as they can which is bad for business.Snakes benefit us by keeping rat and mice populations in control since these rodents can multiply rapidly spreading disease and destroying stores of food.

Gators in PA?Around my place it's Garters, Blacks and Copperheads. If they aren't where I like them to be I just relocate them. Copperheads I've relocated (via shovel and heavy bag) to a quarry about 3 miles away on the way to my dads house. The others just into the fence row although a couple garters and blacks like the thick growth of ferns that grow in different places in my yard. (I just don't tell Jackie what I do - she HATES snakes - all snakes, good or bad )
Caught and kept a black racer for a pet when I lived in Florida, beautiful creatures. Also had two Pygmy Rattlesnakes as pets down there also. Caught a big yellow rat snake, tiny ring necks as well. I was always looking for an Eastern Diamondback but didn’t come across one in the time I lived there. I released them all fat and healthy when I left the state in the early 90‘s.This bad boy or many of its relatives has hung around the house all spring and summer. I can't tell you the countless times my sweet Wife has been startled and pissed at me that I won't get rid of it. Its life has been in jeopardy many times....It's a good 5 feet or longer and he seems to be eating well. View attachment 11160 View attachment 11161
