Boris: well...do ya? Punk!
Meako: Someone say they saw a snake round here?
How many times will it take ?
If that snake were bigger, he'd swallow you whole reptile affection
Now I'm thinking about Jennifer Lopez in Anaconda....an otherwise crap film
I'm not going to the Amazon without an iron hat with a sharply serrated brim, back-and breast plates studded with arrow heads, and spiky knee and elbow pieces. And a large cinquedea. [ I may not have spelled cinquedea quite right, but "delinquency", Spellcheck? A large delinquency?]
Or maybe Spellcheck knows me too well.
That's a beautiful snake, @meako. I don't share the apparently common fear or hatred of snakes. Just prudent caution about not bothering a poisonous one.
I think they are interesting, pretty animals that I generally try leave alone to live their lives. That said, if we had a cottonmouth or copperhead in the yard, I'd certainly try to find some way to capture and relocate it elsewhere. But I never see snakes where I live in the city, not even the little garter snakes. There are plenty of chipmunks, voles, and squirrels so it's not for lack of fodder. Guess the habitat is not right.
I promise that I will never knock on your door, even if I were invited over.
To say I have a "phobia" about sn ... sn ... sn ... legless reptiles ... is an understatement.
I suspect it is because I was killed by one in a previous life.
Welcome to the club.
I like snakes. Bugs, however, creep me out. Maybe it's legs I have a problem with...
Perhaps they're just very discreet.
I don't mind snakes either, as long as they don't 'rattle' at me.
Bugs aren't too bad either, as long as they don't have more than six legs.
Anything with more than six legs absolutely creeps me out. I HATE spiders!!!
No "Perhaps" about it.
I've seen more legless reptiles in the city, than I've seen out in the boonies/sticks.
(I think they want to kill me again, so they come out of hiding in the city to get me. I have a gun when in the boonies/sticks, and can kill them before they can get to me.)
I've always liked snakes, and I'm not particularly bothered by most insects, spiders, etc., although there were a few in Arizona that I'd prefer kept to themselves.
(Hunting scorpions in the backyard with a blacklight was actually kind of fun. Finding them in the house, not so much.)
This guy was checking out my WLST on our first trip to visit my brother and his family in England.
On that same trip, the first night we arrived at my brother's place in Bath, I picked up this snail outside their house and put it in the kitchen sink for my sister-in-law to find. Even better than her reaction was listening to everyone try to figure out how it got in there. (I eventually came clean.)
Eleanor is a big fan of snakes. They've always been her favorite animals when we go to the zoo.
No... Just, NO!!!
It's always interesting what we like/loathe And seemingly irrational too, at least if you're not afraid of it As a kid I was the only one in the family who didn't abhor spiders and was sent to bathrooms, sinks etc to retrieve home invaders. At a zoo I allowed a huge furry one to climb up my arm much to the horror of most. Insects interest me a lot, particularly flying beetles So too with bats which weirdly horrify a lot of people, their impressive silent flight when hawking insects is a summer delight. Lizards are grand too, although once long ago in France when I was staying with a GF, we had been well you know..and a green lizard fell in though the roof window and landed on us, lot of screaming and not just her There were a lot of snakes at this cottage and I did not like going out walking at night, the place was very old and had gaps under the doors, it freaked me out that they could slither in whenever....No, I don't like 'em and I don't think reptiles relate to humans somehow, not like other mammals do, speciesism
I hear Rattlesnake offers good eating though and I might try it well, I like Eel and they're pretty slithery and disgusting
"I don't like spiders and snakes...."
I've had fried rattlesnake. Kinda like eating turkey neck, more bone than meat there, but it wasn't bad.
Fried alligator is the only reptile I've et. Don't know if I'd try snake. Probably not.
I've always heard that the one thing rattlesnake meat and McD's chicken nuggets have in common is that they both taste sort of like chicken.
I don't really have anything in nature that bothers me. I find them all interesting, as long as I am the one approaching them. I'm not fond of being surprised by something falling/flying into my face.
I had fried Alligator (or maybe it was crocodile?) once, in St. Petersburg, Florida. It was like chewing sand or a Chicken "Hotdog". Very "gritty".
I know it was cooked right. I bought it fresh at the local fish market (just 3 blocks from where I was staying), and cooked it myself.
Rather bland tasting, too. A lot like white chicken meant is.
