One day when Patti and I were walking down Flat Stanley Road and got to the bridge area, a young girl came running over to warn us to stay back. There was a snake in the bushes. So of course, we almost ran over to see what it looked like. Out came my camera, and when we got back to our rigs, Patti looked up Bull Snakes and came over with a You Tube video showing exactly what we were watching.
Thus began our education about mating snakes. I did a little research to find out how they actually do it. If you want to learn more, just Google it. These are big, long snakes, in the family of the constrictors. I learned a whole lot more than I ever thought I’d want to know!
Notice the male snake biting the female. Apparently this is normal and doesn’t bother the female. We thought they were fighting and Patti got a stick and separated them, tossing one away from the other. One of the snakes scurried away, the other following it. Then one of them came back and hung out for a while – alone.
