Memorial Day Weekend found me with my buddy, Big Ron and his two kids.

We were on a Varmint Extermination Mission.

The farmers totally hate the ground squirrels because they are so destructive.
They will usually give permission to responsible parties to eliminate the problem.

On our way there, we saw two snakes on a Plane the road.

Anybody care to identify these specimens?

Big Ron is 7 feet tall and wears a size 14 sandal.

Besides the 2 snakes, we also saw:

A big Mule Deer.

A Pronghorn Antelope.

A thousand Ground Squirrels.

Four Turkeys.

We also panned for gold.

I got 4 little flakes and a couple of Garnets.

That was my weekend…

How are things in your town?

  1. >I don’t recognize the first one, but the second looks like a bull snake.

  2. >The top one looks like a prairie rattler.

  3. >Actually the top 2 pictures were of a Bull Snake. They are often mistaken for rattlesnakes. This one was very aggressive and would strike at the bottom of our shoes. He even exhibited mimicry behaviour by trying to rattle his non-existant rattles.The bottom snake is a rattlesnake of some type. He was very unhappy and was buzzing up a storm. That’s one sound you know instantly means Danger!.He looks kind of green. The Mojave Green Rattlesnake is very poisonous but I don’t think that’s what it is.I’ll have to send the picture in to see what kind it is.

  4. >I would have to put those in the one category where all snakes belong–“bad snakes”

  5. >the bottom one is a western rattelsnake
