#flashbackfriday to 2015 when @thewildhanbury had a pair of Inland Taipans (Oxyuranus microlepidotus). This was his female, the more handleable of the two. For a time these were considered to be the most venomous snakes on the planet, but now there is one possible exception. It should go without saying that this is not how everyone should handle one of the worlds most venomous snakes, but for me to tell you not to would be hypocritical. If you don’t feel comfortable handling a venomous snake than don’t do it, if you do feel comfortable doing it you should do it knowing full well the possible consequences. I’ve been free handling venomous snakes for going on 17 years now and never once have I done it in ignorance, I’ve always known the danger it entails. But believe it or not, despite what you have been told, venomous snakes are not monsters looking to bite anyone who touches them, I’ve handled hundreds if not thousands of them without a single bite as a result. Also, it’s my life, I’ll take whatever risks I feel like and no amount of people on the internet complaining will change that. And cue the free handling Police
“It matters not how strait the gate, 
How charged with punishments the scroll. 
I am the master of my fate: 
I am the captain of my soul.”

Last wildlife post for today, I promise. This one is a little grim and graphic, so I apologize in advance. I don’t kill snakes of any persuasion—venomous or otherwise. A lot of folks around here, particularly from older generations, have really, really negative attitudes about snakes. A friend of my grandpa’s came by the nursery today to pick up some old unused tree pots (we save them and pile them up for later reuse). It’s about the most snake-friendly habitat you could imagine. Unsurprisingly, he turned up this very large copperhead (largest I’ve ever seen, I’d estimate 30”) and, being a Southern man in his mid 70s, he immediately struck it on the head and killed it. I snapped some photos about an hour after the fact. Second frame is a video showing complex continued movement. Know that when you kill a snake, it takes a *long* time for it to stop moving and truly die. Their bodies need far less oxygen than ours, and even if you sever their heads, both head and body will continue to move and react to stimuli. Third frame is the snake blindly trying to envenomate its own flank after I nudged it with a stick. Even an hour after being clubbed, this creature was still capable of striking. Think twice before you kill any wild critters, folks. #copperhead #southerncopperhead #agkistrodoncontortrix #agkistrodoncontortrixcontortrix #snakesofinstagram #venomoussnakes #herpetofauna #reptilesofnc #ncwildlife #backyardwildlife #wildlifeencounters #snakesofnc #pitvipers

Timber rattlesnake.
I’m posting the photos I took at NERD slowly for a few reasons: one being I prefer to post photos a few at a time versus all at once and the other being I’m still recovering from being sick. When I’m not fully functional, I don’t interact with my snakes at all, except for cleaning and feeding. This is for both my safety and theirs.
I’m hoping I start feeling better soon so I can take my snakes out into the sunlight. I love having my snakes in the sunlight. ☀️

Just received an amazing snake. Ovophis okinavensis, the Okinawa pit-viper. Like some others, these uncommon snakes are both oviparous and ovoviviparous. Depending on their condition and environment, the females can either lay their eggs and have them hatch under natural temperature and setting or incubate them inside their body, giving live birth later.

Here’s the father of all of my little babies, I can’t wait to see how many end up with his coloration. .

You may remember a week or more ago we did a rattlesnake removal for a land owner and @thewildhanbury found a monster Western Diamondback Rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox). Well @a_wild_mrshanbury and I have been keeping him, we released 2 decent sized Western Diamondbacks a few weeks back that we had picked up on a removal call late last fall so we had a large empty enclosure. We’ve named him Buzz in honor of the late and great Buzz Ross. He shed his skin yesterday morning, it’s hard to appreciate how big he actually is but here’s an idea

A cute little Western Diamondback Rattlesnake (Crotalus atrox) I spotted tonight on an evening hike with @a_wild_mrshanbury and @thewildhanbury.

All 11 babies ate their first meal for me tonight, best part of all is that I did not have to force feed a single one and they all did it on their own. Strong and healthy, every last little dragon.

In addition to the baby Great Basin Rattlesnake I just posted, we (@hairdesign_lea) also found this rattlesnake hanging out next to the rock. If you leave them alone, they will leave you alone.

Puff adder. 
In a span of 0.25 seconds, they can strike out, bite and envenomate, and then return to their original position (Cape Snake Conservation 2011). I did see this guy strike and it was amazing to see the flash of movement. 
I love the bitis genus because the snakes go from slugs as to conserve the maximum amount of energy to moving at speeds that are hard to describe. 
The swipe is a video that has the snake jump (for lack of better term), but not at its strike speed. With the volume on, its easy to hear how they got the name puff adder.

If this one stayed olive green I’d honestly be happy, but the more likely black coloration is definitely nothing to complain about.

The deadliest drop in the Sahara.

That golden drop of snake venom is both, one of the deadliest in the Sahara, and, as a viper venom, is one of the biggest lifesavers in medicine. I found this beautiful Cerastes desert viper along the international border. An hour later I was sitting, aling with this snake, in the police station. Not because of the snake but because of the proximity of frontier.

"Baby rattlesnakes are more deadly than adults because they can't control their venom" quip many a hiker matter a factly

There is little truth to this. Studies have shown rattlesnakes can carefully control the dose given to prey or a threat. Since adult rattlesnakes have much larger venom glands they can deliver much more venom. In some species babies do have a somewhat different venom composition, better suited to lizards that many start with. 
So now you can also smile vaguely when you hear this one next time. Though since you clicked on this I actually offered you a bit more than that! 
Now, baby rattlesnakes are much easier to accidentally step on/touch than adults. It always pays to watch where you put your paws when wandering in the great outdoors! 
This adorable baby sidewinder was about the size of a stick of licorice! .

I found a snake! A Prairie Ringneck in my yard! 😱 Esta pendeja para las culebras had to put a brave act to protect myself & my family and make it disappear. 😂 Even though this snake rarely if ever tries to bite, and even if it did you wouldn't feel the bite at all I read......however it may startle you. Believe it or not though, this snake does have venom and could technically be classified as a venomous snake. However, the fangs they use to administer the venom are located at the back of their mouth and are not likely to ever come in contact with our skin and so the venom poses no threat to humans. Hallelujah!

Natural lighting on these little guys. Both are Northern Pacific Rattlesnakes, Crotalus oreganus. Notice the difference in coloration! The variability in rattlesnakes is amazing, both were found on the same road, while guessing age is next to impossible if you haven’t kept them since birth I would estimate that they are around a year old. I really hope the one on the right keeps that bright color. Then I can name em Yin and Yang 😁. DISCLAIMER: Never handle a venomous reptile without the proper knowledge, experience or equipment. NEVER put yourself in a position where a bite may occur. Even a young one such as these can send you into a life threatening situation. They will not go after you and prefer to be left alone. These are animals that deserve respect not fear. Remember! The only good snake is a LIVE snake. .
