Let me know if you catch any bass, I'll haul my kayaks up there when we go. Nice spot by the way, nicely tucked in the trees.

Oh, thanks, Ernest!
Suddenly I'm not sleepy!

Many years ago on one of our yearly trips to Disney World, just after setting up our motorhome I looked up at a tree that was just past the power pedestal. The tree was growing in the shape of a 'Y' and in that 'Y' which was about 10' up was a snake coiled up and just sitting there. Needless to say I wasn't too happy about that and I notified the Disney people. So, my point is, it looks like the snakes are not limited to Texas.

I'll take a rattler anytime before dealing with a cottonmouth. At least the rattler will let you know it's there. Cottonmouths have some really bad attitudes.

Ok. I will say it!!! The only good snake is a dead snake.
A couple years ago my dogs killed a 39" copper head(yes, they get that big in Arkansas)...not before it bit 2 of them.

My wife and I both have been bitten by Copperheads.... Nasty little snake .... BUT a snake bite will move you to the front of the line at the emergency room as I found out....

So, do I understand correctly that there are only 4 species of venomous snakes in Texas, but there are several subspecies of these snakes (10 rattlesnakes, 1 cottonmouth, 3 copperheads, 1 coral snake).
