#NotesFromTheRiver – Rattlesnakes on Parade: Watch Your Step

You are going to have to make a slight detour through the everglades to get to the heart of this blog post.. When you get to Marcia Mears’s blog you are going to find a photograph of a very large rattlesnake.. beneath that click on Rattlesnakes on parade and you find yourself in Florida with a master class on venomous snakes of the region with loads of photographs and detailed descriptions of their appearance and propensity to bite you! This is scary stuff.. Marcia clearly loves them…. personally I would wear thigh high boots and wear thick gloves.

The Write Stuff

Finished today’s #NotesFromTheRiver post, and hope some of you will check it out. You don’t have to enjoy snakes as much as I do to understand it’s a good idea to recognize any that might be dangerous. 🙂

  1. Thank you so much for sharing, Sally. I really appreciate it, and I hope my response to you on TWS eases your mind a bit. I promise they aren’t lurking behind every bush and tree, ready to leap out at you. 😀 Like any wild animal, they’re out there, and I think it’s a good idea to be able to recognize them, but I can’t remember the last time I saw one, and I’m out and about in nature a fair amount. (This means you don’t have to cancel your vacation to Disney World. 😀 😀 😀 )

    • I will head over Marcia.. and I think it was instilled in me as a toddler when I was at the curious age that offering to play with a cobra was not a wise move. Even though I was very young I can still hear my amah screaming me..’Missy, missy get away!’ My husband does the same when I see the word ‘Sale’ in a shop window…The post was amazing.. I hope lots came over to read.. hugs ✨✨✨✨✨

      • So glad you enjoyed it, and if you click on the main blog page, you can scan all the posts I’ve done for them over the last year and a half, including 2 other snakes, many different birds, manatees, black bears, and lots of great photography. I try to make the posts fun as well as factual and interesting.

        As for cobras, I was at an Audubon program once, sitting on the front row, when the guest speaker walked up to a table four feet from me, opened a big bag, and dumped out a cobra about 6 feet long, which raised its head and stared right at my face. Even *I* was scared witless, and the rest of the audience all shot to the back of the room. (I was too petrified to move.) He then proceeded to talk for fifteen minutes, grabbing the snake’s tail and pulling him back every time it started to move straight toward me. Eeeeeeeeep.

        And I love your husband’s reaction to you spotting Sale signs! 😀

        The post has received a lot of hits, and I thank you for helping that happen. 🙂 ❤
