Florida Snakes

We have quite a few snakes in Florida. Most of them are harmless.

I have a big strapping neighbor who is 6 feet 5 inches tall, big, and tough. But he is afraid of snakes. So if one is in their home or near their home I am called on to remove them.

The neighbor lady called on me to remove a snake. I had always trapped them with my foot and then caught them behind the neck.  But I had watched the crocodile hunter catch them by the tale. I tried it.

Bad idea. The little snake promptly curled up and bit me. No more crocodile hunter tactics for me.
