    Baiting snakes

    If you have been reading my posts here over the last few days you probably read that Cazador thought it was funny that I was baiting snakes with a heat lamp. Well that got me to thinking (always trouble) and since I apparently have no life, I thought why not? This morning was fairly cold and nothing was around. So I changed the bulb to 100w and set the light about 14 inches above the “snake hole” and waited to see what would happen. Came back about two hours later and this happened….. Pretty slick huh?

    I want to live in your sunroom. That "bait" is working on me too!

    Next thing you know, you'll be laying out newspaper and adding a little water bowl... maybe putting out half a can of tuna or something crazy like that. (Send us more pictures, ya nut. It's really awesome )

    By popular demand. I thought this was a pretty good group photo. By the way, after the discussions with persons far more knowledgeable than me, and doing some internet research these may indeed be T.s.pallidulus. Admittedly I had never even heard of a maritime garter before. Oh well live and learn. If I get any more interesting photos, I’ll post them in the gallery.

    Jealous? You bet.

    Also reminds me of this crazy idea I once had. Anybody ever consider making an artificial hibernation den?
