Abigail Posted July 16, 2006 Share Posted July 16, 2006 Living in Louisiana I have seen a few snakes. Had a copperhead on the front porch recently! We have coral, cottonmouths, rattlesnakes and copperheads. All my life I've heard "Don't play with snakes!" Duh?! When I started caching I promised myself I wouldn't hunt in summer because of the snakes but...oh, well! Have only seen one snake while caching. I was climbing a old oil pumping unit to reach a cache. (see cache) I was comforting myself that a snake wouldnt/couldnt climb that high (false). I look down and there is a snake sunning himself. I can either live on this pumping unit or climb back down beside the snake. I climbed down (the second stage was nearby). I did buy myself a hiking staff. I refuse to let myself or kids reach into a hole. I don't like spiders or snakes. FYI, baby vipers are extremely dangerous. Venom is more potent. I'd rather see an alligator than a snake.
