This is what happened. Picked up my kids after work. Got home and let my 2 boys(3 & 10) go outside and play. Well, my 3 year old comes running in screaming that there is a big snake outside. I go outside to check and to my suprise a 4-5 foot Honduran Milk is roaming through the bushes. It became very aggressive, but I finally caught it. In the mean time it musked all over me and then I noticed clear fluid dripping from its mouth. Also, it was very thin for a big snake and you could tell he or she had been cruising out in public for awhile. Other than that she looks like he or she is in excellent condition. A beautiful bi-color Honduran. It's funny, because I just started to get back into snakes last year after many years and I have 7 two year old Honduran's. So, I feed it (4 rat fuzzies) and gave it water. It did eat all the rats and was still striking at me in its new cage. Also, his or her's mouth was still dripping fluid. I have it now on some high heat. Anything else I should do? What really upsets me is, I live in a condo complex with many bushes and trees around and somebody had the nerve to let this snake free or get rid of it. It could have bitten a kid or something. It really was a pissed off snake. Can any body add anything? Thanks, Eric
