EEEKKK!! I shot my first snake of the season *PIC*
I cannot believe that I shot this thing while I was standing on my front porch!! We smoke outside, so I was going to smoke a cigarette, and this is what I saw. We're used to seeing copperheads, rattlesnakes, black racers, etc. but I have never personally seen any snake this long (though I know they are out there). For those wondering, I now know that this is a coachwhip (they'll chase you!!) and from what I've been told, they eat mice and such. I don't care...a snake is a snake to me...other than a king snake of course. The funny thing is, my mom kept telling me "Shoot it again! Shoot it again!!" When I went out later to water my plants, I noticed that in the process of shooting this snake, I shot the water line coming under the trailer from our kitchen sink. I was so worried my dh was gonna be pissed at me, but he was really great about it and fixed it as soon as he got home.
