RE: Snake ID --

Donna - look at the head, is it the arrowhead shape or just smooth from
the body like a gartersnake? It's more likely to be poisonous if
arrowhead shaped. Of course there are excptions, like the coral snake.
One of the deadliest on this continent w/ the smooth profile. All mine
are good guys except for the occasional copperhead which suffers the
fate of Anne Boleyn. Chop!!
