That he does, tho as "he" is approaching 5.75'....Im beginning to think mebbe he's a she again! So Mojilla may be the term in the future!
Mojo demonstrated an interesting behavioral ability today while out cruising; he poked his way into a big cactus pot (Organ-Pipe)...by the time I noticed it wasnt wise to attempt to help, so I watched as he threaded his way across the spines; each scale flexing away from each spine, the motion very slow first in & then finally on out, & upon examination not one spine had penetrated & broken off??? Ive seen several gopher snakes & rattlesnakes w/ spines protruding from them. Its amazing to think bird, rodents & their nests in the columnar cacti are not safe from these snakes.
::I agree w/ you on the foto per se...but....a Georgia guardian out of the far SE...is always significant...me thinks!
::I recommend you calculate the Lat./Long. Coordinates for your sighting, plot it on a decent resolution map (ideally a 1: 24000 [7.5'] scale) & forward a copy of said data & a hardcopy to the Georgia DNR: "non-game wildlife section/Herptiles".
::If those personnel express surprise at your find, you should consider publishing a note in Herp. Review.
::Our own Dean A. is tied into the Georgia Guardian Gang & can undoubtedly forward your info to the folks that ought to know about your observation in detail.
::Thnx for taking the time to post it, C&B; JG
::DA thnx for the recent info. I'd say the disease risk issue makes using anything from captive stock a no-brainer = non-starter. Good to hear that people are thinking out of the box tho...
::DT; major bummer re your loss..where does it end?
::Mojo sends a hi to all, hes resting comfortably, recently shed w/ a fat ~ 1 m DoR Diamondback onboard...
