Chris and the kids saw a snake in the backyard a few nights ago. We googled in and it looked to be a cottonmouth so we called our neighbor (who is a snake enthusiast) over to verify. She thought so too and texted her reptile enthusiast group to come pick it up. She didn’t want to handle it due to being pregnant (understandably so) and so a few minutes later, this couple showed up with their bucket and pole. Chris gave them a hard time because they were wearing snake t-shirts but apparently they had been at a snake show in Houston that day.
They said it was the biggest they had seen this year. So yeah, not real happy about that. I might be slightly terrified to go in my backyard now.
