That was too funny!! That photo was the ewww face was hilarious!
I have never eaten rattlesnake, what does it taste like?

semicrunchymama said...

Ack! Seriously...ACK!

I can handle snakes, from a distance. A good distance. But the thought of actually holding one, or my child holding one...again, ACK!

Kmama said...

Eew, eew, eew. I have chills just looking at those pics!! I used to play with snakes when I was little though. I guess I wasn't smart enough to know that they are ICKY!

Thanks for linking up. The pics are awesome.

The Simple Life said...

Okay I wouldn't have been able to get my camera because I would have been in the house (with my kiddo) away from THAT thing!

I hate snakes! Glad you could be calm enough to make it a visual for us!

Have a great Thursday!

renee said...

that's the one thing i just can't handle!!! snakes make me feel like i'm going to PASS OUT!!! ugh. thank you very much for sharing that, rachel. :P

BK said...

Lol! I happen to think snakes are pretty darn cool, and I live in rattler country. I caught a bull snake that was in the pigeon coop yesterday!

Aunt Crazy said...

Snakes freak me out but as long as they stayed the hell away from me, anyone else could touch it...LOL

Eyeglasses & Endzones said...

Im totally with you on this one!!! Grrr...I can't even handle it if it is the size of a worm!!! ha!

Michelle said...

Ewww... snakes creep me out too, plus they're evil! Stay up in that tree for as long as possible!

Foursons said...

That rattler was alive and shakin' his tail in the pan wasn't he?! Oh my goodness so scary. We have rattlers here too and my first question everytime someone sees a snake is if it was a rattlesnake. They are EVERYWHERE around here. We have copper snakes around here too. Ugh.

Beth Zimmerman said...

That looked more like a worm than a snake ... though I don't care to get up close and personal with either! And who was dangling it on her head? Your sister?

Liz (Loving Mom 2 Boys) said...

ok...I can totally deal with snakes around here, small non-poisonous. A rattler?! Is there room for another on that tree limb?

HeatherOz said...

Ewwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww! I can't deal!

Together We Save said...

Oh gross.... I hate snakes!

Oka said...

too funny :D I'll have to show the kids when they get back in

Tiffany said...

I am with you girl. Rattlers are hideous, nasty creatures of doom. We do, however, have a bull snake that has taken up residence in our back yard. I don't mind him because I know he eats rattlers. Good snake. He does like to scare the ever-loving daylights out of me though.

Presley family said...

Can I just say that I LOVE this!!!
Too funny!!!I grew up in Texas with snakes all around. I have to say that I am happy as can be in our California city now.... NO SNAKES!!! wink!
Thank you for your sweet comments!!!!
BIG HUGS!!

Foursons said...

I came back to read all your comments and decided to click on the picture of the rattlesnake. I now realize its head was chopped off, but I can't imagine getting close enough to one to be able to chop its head off. I'd be running the other direction screaming.

He & Me + 3 said...

OmGosh, omgosh, omgosh...I am so freaked out by snakes. that little one looks like a worm...but yikes, still scary to me.

Lexie Loo & Dylan Too said...

Ugh! Loved your story, but UGH! My husband has had his pet snake for over a month now, and I still can't get near it!

Michelle Pixie said...

YIKES! I wouldn't care either to be called a baby...well chances are I would be crying if you get that thing too close so I guess I really am baby. I screamed a horrible scream the other day when a moth flew at me so you can imagine my reaction to that slimy creature. Ewwww did you eat any snake?!

wife.mom.nurse said...

ewwwwwwwwwww

Killlashandra said...

I don't think the little snake would have really hurt you. However, the rattler be careful of. We saw way too many of those in southern NM for my taste that's for sure.

Dyann said...

Okay, I'm just gonna' call it as I see it.

You're a chicken.

Garter snakes barely have teeth, and that one was a baby! I've held quite a few in my lifetime and haven't died yet! (Just gotten peed on. Peeyoo!!)

Any my mom's eaten rattler before (she grew up in AZ) and said it tasted like chicken. Doesn't everything?

Oh I love the pics. I am not scared of snakes but I don't want to hold them either. I like your Aunt's idea of what to do with them though...lol.
