I walked up and he hissed and snapped, so finally I chased him out if the road with a stick. I wanted to just get back in and hit him after he tried coming after me, but my friend who was driving refused so I got to figure out how to get that mean sucker to move. Both myself and the snapper made it out unscathed.
Lol... this year has been rough already here i almost hit a pretty big gator that was crossing the rd then apparenly this is the 3rd snake to cross our yard my guess is bc of the stupid chickens my inlaws refuse to put in a fenced in area among all their other animals that wonder over here bc we usually dont have snakes... i put moth balls out today around our house sure dont want any coming in :/

Thanks for reminding me to mothball the yard! We have a few stray cats that hang around, plus my boyfriend is terrified of snakes. So we do not want any in the yard! Plus we have free range chickens next door, too. Never thought about those attracting snakes...

There was a big pond behind an apartment complex I used to live in that had gators. Once I found that out I was not happy about the run down fence between my backyard and the pond. I think it was an old water treatment facility that hadn't been used in years, but they built a plant nursery on one side and an apartment complex on the other. Not sure how the gators got there, but on warm days I could look out my bedroom window (on the second floor, high enough to see over the fence) with binoculars and watch the gators sunning theirselves. Scary.

Yeah that would have dented your car. Haha, it kind of reminds of a dinosaur with the way it's walking.

So the three animals get along together? I always thought beards would try to attack the gecko.
