ESSEX, CA - AUGUST 27: A very young Mojave desert sidewinder rattlesnake is seen shortly after dawn near Amboy Crater at Mojave Trails National Monument on August 27, 2017 near Essex, California. The 1.6 million-acre Mojave Trails National Monument was designated by President Barack Obama in February 2016 and is one of six National Monuments in California, out of a total of 27, that the Donald Trump administration is considering for reduction or elimination. Mojave Trails is the result of the donations of more than 200,000 private acres to the federal government for conservation in perpetuity, the largest such land gift in U.S. history, and includes more than 350,000 acres of previously congressionally-designated Wilderness. It includes desert mountains, sand dunes, volcanoes and lava flows, as well as the longest remaining undeveloped stretch of Route 66, Native American trade routes and World War II-era training camps. It stretches about 95 miles and runs 50 miles from north to south near its midpoint.

I saw a copperhead this weekend (eating a frog might I add) and I was like nope, not today my friend. I hate snakes. Sorry not sorry…but I find them terrifying.

Snakes sometimes look for food AFTER the love because the females are looking for a place to nest. It is important to keep rodents away from your home because snakes smell them and then you have a problem. Just ask one South Carolina family.

According to the news report, David Adams says he found the female reptile in a Charleston home after she found a little opening to slither in and lay her eggs. There were about 15-20 eggs in the outlet. Unfortunately, the eggs had already hatched so wildlife rescuers had to find all the babies as well as the momma.
