    Backyard Surprise!

    I thought I’d share this funny story with you guys. The other day I went out to water my garden. I have several hoses around the yard that I have hooked up on old wheels. This works really well and keeps the hose up off the ground and out of the way. The only downside; I discovered it makes a great hiding place. As I reached for the hose something looked wrong and instinctively I jerked my hand away. The hose was looking at me; only it wasn’t a hose, but a four foot Bull snake! He had wrapped himself around it and blended in perfectly. Man, you want to talk about getting the blood pumping! Luckily not a rattler, but he sure gave me a scare…Be safe out there everyone, these critters are definitely on the move.

    I had heard that they will actually eat a Rattler, but wasn't sure if it was true. I'm glad to know that it's not just a rumor. He is welcome to stay and keep eating! Now that I live closer to town I don't see half the rattlers that I used to when I was living on top of the Bradshaw Mountains. There were heaps of them up there, especially the Arizona Blacks. This is one of my favorite rattler photos. I spotted him in the driveway just as I was leaving the house and he gave me this classic pose...Can't say I really miss seeing them.
