    Those are fun snakes to see and look at. Catching them? Not so much lol! They bite and musk and are just kinda gross. After youíve caught several you kinda get over them haha

    We've only ever seen 3 snakes at our house despite living with a big green belt behind our house, and I've only seen 2 of those three.

    This one that we just approached for photos and let slither off, what I think is a rough/smooth earth snake or something similar that darted into the dirt before we could even try (not dekays brown snake), and my husband saw a garter exactly once while mowing who did the same thing and hid before he could even approach.

    I don't think I'd go out of my way to pick up a water snake for that exact reason, haha. But it is cool to see them and get some pictures.

    Out in the trails by our old apartment we saw a nice, big rat snake. "He" was clearly doing well for himself with the big complex and creek nearby. I'm not sure if being in Texas makes it a TX rat snake, or if it is just a western rat. Big one measured 5 to 6 ft with a pixel measurement of the picture (sidewalk is a big biking path).

    Re: Noxubee Wildlife Refuge

    All but struck out last night. Saw one mud turtle and that was all.

    Sunset was very nice though

    That's ok, it's still a nice turtle, beautiful scenery & a stunning sunset.

    The positive side is that we didnít find anything dead on road. So at least all the snakes we didnít see were alive somewhere

    Noxubee Wildlife Refuge

    Not a bad night at the refuge this evening. Even saw a few alligators in the lake

    Not great pictures of the alligators but they werenít terribly large and were probably 40í+ from the shore.

    Cottonmouth showing its eponymous defensive display.


    Second time in a row I ended the night on a DOR juvenile speckled kingsnake. Really want to find one of these alive soon. Such beautiful animals.
