Default Snakes...


I made a mistake and left some plastic deer/bird netting on the ground in the chicken run. My wife went outside this evening to "close in the girls" and saw movement in the netting. We had three snakes caught in there! Two Eastern Hognose and what I thought was a Black Racer but now think it might have been another Hognose in "black phase". Any of you snake guys know if the orange guys and black color hognose live together?

I felt stupid and kind of ashamed that I had failed to pick up the netting and may have killed these snakes. Not to mention nearly giving my wife a heart attack. Fortunately, it was chilly this evening which allowed my wife and I to cut the snakes free of the netting. Makes them sluggish right?

Interesting evening in Delaware.
