Nope, no rattle. This farmer out in Quitaque told us (and remember these are the people that said on the instructions "This is Rattlesnake country - do NOT leave doors open.") that dogs know to stay away from snakes. Uh, maybe his dogs but the only snakes I've seen are tiny ones in the backyard and dead ones on the road. And I believe I might have rolled once or twice on a dead baby one in the yard. Uh oh, mom just gave me a dirty look. shh

thinking...can't comment wiff authority on dat...yur's truely liked ta circle 'em an' bark nonstop. If dey wuz poison, momma would shoot 'em...if dey wuz friendlys I hadda go in da house 'til dey hadda chance ta slip away.
thinking...don't think i ever rolled on a dead snake...da ones momma shot got put inna bucket an' hauled off da place where I'd never find 'em. She didn't wanna bury 'em fur fear I'd dig 'em up.

Ok so maybe it's a dead worm - it's something dead and smells great! Since grandson finds the little ones everywhere they gotta die somewhere!

There are sometimes a lot of "worms" out on the sidewalk when it rains - didn't know they were snakes. Wait til I tell Mom - she'll freak. wink

You always have cool wisdom, JL. Mom never heard of tiny snakes like that. Lots of worms around here too. The few snakes I've run into, I stay back. Dad is the one in my house who really hates snakes. He's run over 'em with the lawn mower before. Wa la. Instant diced meat ready for cookin'.

Now they are saying that the feral pigs are so bad that rattlesnakes have stopped rattlin to get the jump on the pigs. But then my mom read that rattlers been rattlin for 1000's of years and just because there are now a few wild hogs around, doesn't mean they are going to change that natural habit.

Thanx for the advice on the worms vs snakes dilemma.

Feral pigs, rattle snakes, mountain lions. Mom is thinkin' she'll take the midwest winter instead of the chance of running into one of those in the southwest. shock
