    Interesting Photos from and email I received

    I believe these were taken in Southern Utah by firefighters working a brush fire.







    Rattlesnakes often stay in dens. I've lived in the southwest my whole life and not come across a den like this. I think it is pretty impressive.

    Scary. I don't mind snakes but I don't like rattlers.

    Same here. I actually kind of like snakes, but you just don't mess with that!

    Where does she live? I see them at least a once every month but they are all fairly small.

    My response would have been something along the lines of: "Does your bike have computer controlled suspension? Then shut your piehole, this baby is from the future!"

    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    I work in the Emergency Room. We're finding people that eat them are more sensitive to the venom and have a worse reaction to the bites.

    Could you imagine being on a mountain bike ride and doing an endo into a pit like that?

    I've ridden over a snake on the trail before. It was most likely either a rattler or a bull snake but I was going too fast to tell. It was not on purpose mind you but I was heading down the trail at full speed, came around a turn and there was one stretched across the trail. With no time to brake I did the only thing I could do and that was raise my feet and hope it wouldn't bite me. Startled the hell out of me, snake too probably.

    why can't people just leave nature alone, without having to kill it, eat it, or both?

    Away from the grandkids and out of my daughter's yard I wouldn't kill them either. My other daughter's husband's 2 year old nephew was bitten in the abdomen on the front porch of his home. Sorry, snake has to go to snake heaven. That's the rules around here.
