    Re: Baiting snakes

    Ok, now I have to think about it. He came out first and kind of curled up under the lamp. She (?) came out a little later and stretched out along the top of the foam insulation (they aren’t dumb they always lay on the foam, not the concrete). He (?) slowly (and I should say sensually) stretched out full length along her. No quick movements, actually it was kind of like flowing water, almost magic. I had to go do some stuff then, so I did not see what happened after that. I came back a little later and some of his buddies had shown up. Now I remember some of the things about garter mating, and you might be right, there may have been some hanky panky going on (or at least pre-hanky panky). She is about twice as big as the others (must be close to 3 feet {90 cm}). Below are some photos. Please be patient with me I am learning, slowly but learning. One of them, being a typical guy curled up by a window (his favorite spot when the sun is out) for an afternoon nap.

    Looks like a bunch of males thatīs trying to "impress" a female.

    Terry,

    If she were my daughter, I'd send her straight to her room and tell her not to come out till those rotten boys had gone home. I don't trust a one of them, but I bet in the very near future, they'll be ignoring her .

    I'm not touching that one with a ten foot pole, Stefan .

    Doesn't that lone male by the window look like he's lost out, and he's sad about it ?

    Re: Baiting snakes

    hah wow, thats awesome. I remember in my cousins old house he had snakes in his basement on Cape Cod in MA. He had ringnecks, a couple milks, and maybe a garter or two. I'd go down there and be flipping boards as if I were in a field instead of a basement.

    And ya, those are definetly maritimes. Undefined stripe and tend to be more red or green compared to the more yellow easterns.

    Maybe it's time for me to quit my job and move to Western NY.
