Spring around my house means SNAKES

Hi everyone, this post was totally inspired by the fact that Amy over at Cheeky Cocoa Beans posted today about a garter snake that she had found in her front yard.
Many of you already know that we are proud owners of ALOT of reptiles. In our domestic collection we have 4 burmese pythons ranging from 13 feet long and about 80lbs to 2 that are around 3 feet and just a couple of pounds. Then we have a small albino corn snake and a small Australian Sand Python also known as a woma.
This spring my husband and my oldest son have gone on a rampage, because around here, Spring means SNAKES! Let me just show you what I mean, I won't post all of them, because right now in our shed along with our domestics there are a total of 15 snakes. All but three, wild caught with their bare hands. The three that I speak of are probably the scariest... 2 adult Canebrake Rattlers and their baby. They were graciously given to us by a neighbor! THANKS!!!
So if your squeamish, you might want to click elsewhere now! For the curious, here ya go...
Yeah, that's a rattler. (above)
This is a gray rat snake (harmless).

This is a garter like the one Amy found.

This is Abby's albino corn snake. (above)

This is Monty, the Albino Burmese Python (He's not the biggest).

I think that is a pretty fair representation. I'm sure this post will deter any visitors at our house. LOL Hope you enjoy.

Now, I'm not one to scream around snakes or anything like that (my first reaction to our infamous little garter was to grab my camera, after all) but I don't know how you sleep at night. I'd be dreaming about escapees every single night!
