There are certainly quite a few snakes in your area. I'm lucky, all we have are garter snakes.
Yes there are. I see one almost every day in the summer. These are very useful as they eat poisonous snakes. This one was hunting a poisonous Copperhead and I didn't know it. I didn't see the Copperhead and it struck at me. Now I am very careful when I see a King hunting. I assume we must have garter snakes but maybe not, as I have seen so many species but not that one.
That is incredible. I assume from what you told me, that the King snake is not poisonous, yet it preys on the Copperhead, which is.
That is correct.
That's one way of keeping the population down.
Great capture, that's not an easy one to get. Like.
