I've never felt a snake. But one of the softest things I ever felt was the belly of an alligator... not hard, not scaly, just soft, like the down on a baby duck.

I've shrieked a couple of times - once when I almost put my hand on a snake when I went to turn on the faucet, another time when I stepped on a rat in the utility room. It doesn't help - just leaves your throat raw. ;-)

Truly, having the snake fall on me was such a novel experience I didn't have time to react, and when I saw him slide off of my fingertips, I was more in awe of his movement than frightened.

OMG and you're still among us! I'd still have my hair standing on end
from that. In fact my vocal cords would probably not ever have
recovered. I bet they'd have heard me shriek in Australia.
I like snakes just fine...on the ground clearly visible, or under a rock
where I'm not likely to run across them unexpectedly.

Yes, that one was pretty slim, and only about 5' long. We've had fatter
ones
in the chicken coop, but I've never had them take eggs, or at least not
that
I noticed. There's often some variation among various days eggs -
sometimes
10 sometimes 15. They really work at keeping the mice down, though.

Have you ever had one fall on you from the rafters? I did one day. I was

surprised by how warm it was as it fell on my head, then slid to my
shoulder
and down my arm before moving away.

THAT'S what my snake looks like..only bigger (and fatter now that he
ate 3 of my eggs).
