You doubt me...?

For those who doubt my story of a 4 foot long snake in my yard-- are you from Missouri or what??-- here is further photographic proof.

The kids, though.. they're all made up.

I'm a believer! I don't knwo where you live, but if it's south they are a dime a dozen. We used to find huge ones in our yards all the time. Of course, I lived near a bayou... Blech!

Is it a bull snake? My first husband was an amateur herpetologist and he kept live snakes (some venomous) in cages IN THE HOUSE, before we had kids and I had to fight to get rid of them. That kind of proximity makes you less afraid of the non-venomous ones, and completely phobic about the venomous ones. I have some snake horror stories that would make your hair stand on end...!!

it is a gopher snake-- not poisonous but very gross anyway.

LOL I looked up snake patterns when you first posted the tail pic, and I jotted down gopher snake and spotted leaf-nosed snake. But man...there are so many snake patterns!

Growing up out in the country (on the central coast of California), we encountered many a rattlesnake...who always found their head under my dad's shovel!

we only have garter snakes on the Island - they are non-poisonous and great for the garden. They give me the willies now but when I was a kid I used to carry them wrapped around my wrist - hey!! maybe I should have entered that into your contest Mary :)

I live in AZ and we have lots of snake sightings!! In fact, one of our friends found one in their yard just a couple weeks ago : )

Yuck... I hate snakes!!

SKETCHY. Seriously. I've got the crawly feeling on my neck now.
At least it's not a rat.

EWWW. All snakes are gross!!

That's a whole lot of snake.

I used to have a "pet" blacksnake that lived under my grandparents' front porch. She would come out to sun herself and I would pet her. She was about six feet long.

But I can understand your reaction. With a yard full of kids, a big 'ole snake would freak me out, too.
