Last Thursday 3 of my dogs were in the back yard barking, not their normal bark so I went to see what was wrong, In between the large turtle enclosure and Walker's house they had a young adult black rat snake cornered somewhat, it had just eaten what looked like it could have been a rabbit or a dove, anyway it wasn't able to move fast enough to get away so it was in the defensive position and putting on a good bluff.I bagged it and set it aside so it could digest it's meal. Saturday some people stopped by to see the turtles and tortoises, I was with them for a while looking at animals and plants, when they left I came into the kitchen, and somewhere off of me came a baby black snake, I don't know where it was but I carried it in the house somehow, I put it in a critter cage and gave it a drink, latter I thawed a very small mouse and offered it, and it ate,A few minutes ago a neighbor from across the street said he caught a big old black snake a little while ago and had it in a bag, I ask what he was going to do with it and he said, Kill It, I said, No I'll take it,So in the last 5 days I have acquired 3 more black snakes to go with the one I saved last summer,I haven't had this many black snakes at one time since I was about 15 years old.
