hiya Wendy! :wave: I think it is a common brown water snake, it is about 3/4 times the size of a garter snake, with no stripes or markings, has been around there (I take care of this property) for years...this is a male, the smaller female was about a foot to my left, shedding? I was wondering why the eye was cloudy, they were so still, I thought they were dead at first....

wow that is close!! Is it poisonous? You are braver than I am ... I got a dang black widow spider that keeps hiding on me somewhere near or on my desk and everytime I go to smack the hell out of it ... it takes off on me and I get to screaming and jumping around like a Mexican jumping bean. LOL

That is an awesome pic. Thanks for posting it.

heheh, I think this is just an ordinary non- poisonous water snake, it lives where i work in the rip-rap by the water, there was his lady friend just to my left about a foot away...I was just bothering them...heheh but they are mellow...
a real black widow? I'd get rid of that!
glad ya like the pic, Gypsy!

I saw it a few minutes ago and sprayed a bunch of bug spray in the desk drawer. I have a surgery mask on and rubber gloves ha ha ha ha ... It was slowly moving and I grabbed about 3 paper towels and a rock I have on the book shelf and I smashed that sucker about 4 times real good ... almost busting the drawer out of this antique desk. I watched it for about 5 mins and took the paper towel and picked it up. Oooooooooh what a mess. It got flushed down the toilet and its legs were still moving. I flushed that toilet about 3 times. Hope it went all the way down the sewer .. don't want it biting me on the butt.

Now I got another spider that ran behind a pic above my desk. This one has loooooooooooooooong black legs and is funky looking. I guess they are getting in through the window around the screens . . . every time I go pee pee ... I am looking around .. lifting seat .. and do it real fast ... haaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
