    So far I have killed a baby dusky pygmy rattle snake in my own yard and a couple of water moccasins when I was line trimming retention ponds while working for my friends company over the summer.

    Scalped a big toad on one pass with my 21" in taller grass. Didn't see him on the pass coming back. Hope his friends liked his haircut:)

    I hit a black snake so big it sopped my lazar.

    Good sized turtle probably the worst for me. Quite a few baby rabbits but the turtle definately came out in a grosser fashion.
