    Diamondback

    I just had to kill a 4ft. diamondback rattler..[11 rattles]...i dont like killing anything but it was in my dogs fenced in yard and jack was going nuts in and out at it, just a matter of time before he got bit...

    12 ga. 00buck took its head and made it disappear...creepy how long they move around with no head,,,[no rattles now either]...

    too bad...dont like doing that...

    but on the bright side, i've got one dandy 11 rattle earring...

    Aww...should of decapitated with a shovel (if relocation was not practical)

    I found a fresh roadkilled water moccasin, 6 or so years ago. I put the head in a jar of green rubbing alcohol and named him "lucky" I gifted it to a friend, couple years later. Sat on his book shelf until he moved a couple years ago. He asked me if i wanted it back, was tempted but that would of been wrong.

    Lucky has a new "forever" home...
    Yep, I'd wrap that in bacon! KEEP AMERICA GREAT, TRUMP 2020

    I sure hope so. Nothing stinks like a dead, rotten snake.
    Except rotten turtles with legs and heads sloughing off.

    Pick up a hoop net with two or three like that in it after 3 days and you will lose your groceries repeatedly.
    And invent new cuss words....

    Speaking things moving while dead, my little dog got a lizard (well at least the tail) in my shop a few days ago. That thing waved back and forth for around a half hour. CREEPY when you're holding it! Never did find the rest of the lizard after looking everywhere, so assume it got out of shop only to grow a new one again. The tail is 7" long so he was decent sized...
