    I got a call from a guy this morning wanting me to mow his week-end get a way thing. Its not a house but more like a big building looking over a big drop.It has a deck on the back of it that had grass grown up a little over your ankles.Anyway when I started weedeating it I ran out two snakes.I think they were cow-suckers but not sure.Anybody else ever see snakes when they are mowing?

    But they don't bother me, There are a lot of Pygmy Rattlesnakes, Diamondbacks, Black Racers, and Cottonmouths. Yeah they will all bite only the racer is non poisonous and thats the most common.

    What are cow-suckers? I run into snakes all the time. Don't bother me...they eat up the stupid bugs!

    They are black and brown a little bit.Kind of like a gator snake but longer and darker.I don't like any snake much but I usually don't try to kill these.Man they almost give me a heart attack when I walk up on them.

    I havent been fond of them after this one time I was playing paintball in the woods and I squated down right next to one. And being me I shot it like 20 times and that just like pissed him off so I ran out and got shot like 30 times.
