Lately, there have been a lot of snake sightings in Claycord.

We wrote a story on Monday about all the snake sightings, and received this photo from our friend “Shasta Daisy” after we published our story.

Thanks for the picture, Shasta!

Beware, Claycordians, and remember to wear jeans if you’re hiking in the open space!

Wow! Never seen a Cornsnake with a rattle like that!!!

Ahhh, how cute. He’s smelling the Shasta Daisy.

Looks like a well-fed snake: No doubt, he’s keeping the rodent population under control.

What a beautiful snake! He or she does look well fed.

I like the semen flavored ones the best!!!!

@#3: I havent seen a reduction of liberals.

That park as an abundance of rattle snakes!

It would be nice to see a reduction of left wing and right wing. They’re both nut jobs. There’s a reason most people are in the center. They’re moderates because they have their head on straight.

wow! what a rattle on that snake!

“Rattlesnake” is just one word.

Beware snakes, stay away from Claycordians.

Shasta daisies have yellow centers, and leaves with smoother/straighter edges. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leucanthemum_%C3%97_superbum

I believe these pictured are African daisies: http://gardening.about.com/od/plantprofiles/p/Osteospurmum-Growing-And-Caring-For-African-Daisies.htm

The plant in the picture is an African Daisy.

@fun girl I have a marraige proposal if you’re interested.

15 Jim April 22, 2014 at 4:50 PM

The only good rattlesnake is a dead rattlesnake

16 Subterfuge April 22, 2014 at 5:01 PM

I always run up n’ poke ‘em with a stick.

17 Atticus Thraxx April 22, 2014 at 5:29 PM

How cool. Have yet to see one around the house or in the pool. Kinda disappointed.

18 Claycord Cornsnake April 22, 2014 at 7:23 PM

I can take him, piece of cake

19 there must be some sort of mix up April 22, 2014 at 7:47 PM

I think fun girl (#5) thought she was posting her Water Cooler answer.

20 Shelly April 22, 2014 at 7:57 PM

Shasta Daisy, that’s a really pretty snake, and a such a cute picture with the flowers!

21 Plain Observation April 22, 2014 at 8:21 PM

That is a really big rattler, is it true that the venom from an adult can kill a baby giraffe? I heard that somewhere.

22 Shasta Daisy April 22, 2014 at 8:27 PM

Those are African Daisies in the photo.

I’ve seen two rattlers so far this year.
I just quickly walk around them.
They are more fearful of me than I am of them.

Wear jeans but be sure to wear boots too. If you want you can catch it and cook it. It is suppose to taste like chicken. Since I don’t like the taste of chicken, you can eat my share of chicken and snakes.

The snakes have probably migrated because of the fire on Mt. Diablo. I still think about all of those fire fighters in that blazing heat then having to go home to their wife and “kid” to battle the next blaze. I feel sorry for them that tragedies like this happen. It’s not hard to imagine that the firefighters find it hard to go home.

Actually it looks like it only has 2 little buttons on it’s tail. Can’t rattle too loud. Watch your step. It’s all fun & games until someone needs a leg amputated.

26 Starsmile April 22, 2014 at 10:29 PM

Dr. Jelly Jelly, how’s trix?

27 Dr. Jellyfinger® April 22, 2014 at 10:59 PM

Well…. to be honest, kind of expensive….. but still cheaper than dating.

28 Starsmile April 22, 2014 at 11:28 PM

I still think trix is a blow-up doll Dr. Jellyfinger. But to each his own. :-)

I guess my attempt at humor failed.
