: I have several buttermilks that live in my yard/landscaping/ garden area( near Houston). See em 2-5 times a week. Found eggs last year and hatchlings for several years. Also have 5.5' coachwhip that hangs around alot. The coachwhip I caught yesterday was fiesty for just a few minutes and then turned his head sideways, laid it on the ground and played dead.He would not even move when you flopped him around.I took him back to a shed where I found him and he finally took off.Never seen that behavior before.

: : Is anyone finding any Buttermilks out?

: : Just DOR's. Later.


DVL: It's odd you mention that cause I had a coachwhip brought to me today, by the local animal control, do the same exact thing. Bit me 3 or 4 times and then went limp. Played dead much like a hognose without the theatrics. I've seen this once or twice before in Western Coachwhips only, pretty bizarre behavior for an active, dirunal, large, snake like this. later, KW.
