Heebie Jeebies!

12 Jul

7/12 – 18.6 miles
AT Mile Marker – 1,160.5 miles

In my post yesterday, I promised to attempt to capture, in a photograph, the next rattlesnake I came across.
Promise delivered, folks, here ya go!

It is a black phase timber rattlesnake.

After this sighting, I made Bojangles go first. And BOOM, not ten feet away, a copperhead slithered out from underneath a rock just inches away from his foot. He emitted a string of curse words and leaped a great leap. We later learned that timber rattlers and copperheads are known to den together.

Talk about a case of the heebie jeebies for the next mile afterwards.

    Cool pic!! Have you recorded the rattle sound? Good news: you have two more days to get the app in for http://www.fish.state.pa.us/images/pages/forms/snake_venomous.pdf and then you could have rattlesnacks every night!

    Bojangles: A bouncing male package. Usually when a guy wears sweat pants or basketball shorts (any loose/thin material), you can see his package bouncing around. Alternatively, referring to a pair of testicles or “balls” …preferably balls of large size and proportion.

      I don’t know who you are or how you came across this, but let me tell you… it’s all true. You’ve cracked the code.

      I hadn’t seen this before… thank you for the laugh and eye roll!
