A 'funny' one first.
I used to collect quite a bit when I first moved to Auburn.
I would go out almost every day and see what I could find.
Mostly I found Common kingsnakes and gophersnakes...
One day I brought home a very stout gophersnake about 2' long.
It was really pretty, nice reds and yellows compared with the usual fare.
I brought it home, and when I pulled it out of the pillowcase,
it went OFF! It struck at my face repeatedly (just missing!) about five or six times
in rapid succession. Fortunately it wasn't longer, because I had it as far away
as I could hold it! I looked at the snake and said 'oh well'
and tossed it into the cage with a 4'+ Cal King.
Imemdiately the Kingsnake struck and got the gopher perfectly
on the nose , and proceeded to constrict and eat it.
I don't like snakes with 'attitude'
