Wow, seems early .....great spot to see him in the leaves!

One of my past neighbors was a "kill on sight" guy when it came to snakes....he was convinced every garter or young black snake "has diamonds" so it must be poisonous!

Nuts! I'm allergic to antivenin .........and even I do not kill snakes out of caution! I never could convince Jerry though. He retired and moved to Fla.....don't imagine he found any down there, do you?

lol....karma.....

shudder!! I am terrified of snakes, dosnt matter how big small or type! But I dont have anyone just go out and kill them either..... when my daughters and i were living in the trayler park a snake got into our shed. We didnt go into the shed for months!! then my son came down and i send him right into the shed to get it out! He took it down by the lake and let it go. frountly it didnt come back.

I wasn't expecting to see one this early in the season. I haven't disturbed any areas where anything may have settled in for the winter. So nothing I did caused him to be active. I've seen 2 adult male box turtles so far. Wouldn't it be funny if Jerry happened to move to an area with a large snake population.

I'm now up to 4 rattlesnakes here. 3 babies and one large adult. Still haven't seen any gophers or kings.

What part of SoCal do you live in? I’m near Joshua Tree, haven’t seen any yet this year and I’m hoping it don’t 😳
