I was feeding my box turtles a mash yesterday and a gorgeous copper head was sitting right next to this female. Talk about a close call. I'm sure they would have eaten him, but I didn't take a chance having three nosy dogs that like to sniff turtles, so, I relocated him somewhere he won't be bothered.

Your story is so much better then mine, when I got a slight scare coming around the tree in the path. Spotted a snake slithering across just infront of me... and mine wasn't a serious snake like yours.
