Dh and I were out on the porch just now smoking. When we stood up to come inside Jake followed us. Just as he came around the corner I heard a rapid rattling... I stopped and looked around the corner of the house. I knew what the sound was as soon as I heard it. I looked over by the fence and sure enough! There was an Eastern Diamondback Rattlesnake slithering through the fence to the yard next door..
They are in the midst of building a new house nextdoor and the grass is really high (up to my waist) and I bet thats where it's nesting! I am going to talk to the owner the next time I see her and tell them they need to mow it because I have a dog and 2 kids that play outside all the time.... Just a bit nerve racking know it's there! Here's what he looked like....

Please call the wildlife folks in your area... That snake and its possible family need to be relocated ... If memory serves Easterns can be aggresive ....

Oh, talking about snakes! The other week, I was online and my husband was playing video games, I saw Scuffy entered the kitchen and carrying something, I thought it was a a rope or something. It wasn't clear to me what was he carrying in his mouth and I started screaming. My husband got the garter snake from his mouth, it was pretty big like 15" long.

Heard it again tonight. We got a flashlight and looked around but didn't see anything... Not this has me worried. I wonder what I can do about it. I know this is thier native land and they were here before us but it's become a real concern now. We heard it twice tonight but again, didn't see it anywhere. DH says he thinks it could be some kind of insect and it was a coincidence that I seen a snake at the same time... Does anyone know of any insects that make a rattling noise like a rattlesnake? I'm scared to go outside know and I'm NOT going to try to take this thing on by myself...No way!

EWWWWWWW i don't blame you! a buzzing insect does not sound like a rattlesnake! He was probably just trying to keep you from worrying but i wouldn't buy it- lol i'd have some ppl come out and relocate that sucker!
