Thank you Lance, but I did not put it back. Sorry, As I have mentioned, I am both an avid field herper and a keeper. I am very interested in what that animal will produce, if anything out of the ordinary. There is more to that snake then meets the eye.

I take very very few. At this point, less then 3%. And normally I will not take animals that are not on the road. My rationalization is, sooner or later they will get hammered.

Last year I took two hatchlings that were in the middle of a busy street. I could not believe they were alive. Sadly, I gave them to a friend who works with hogs and he lost both of them.

back to me taking that one, In this case, it was like many of the subjects here(grey areas). I actually was coming back from the field and spotted it off the side of the road getting ready to cross, as least it was headed that way. In the one picture, you can see a tire track right in front of the snake.

I found the snake last thru. And its already pounding mice, no scenting required.

The funny part is "guilt" when I do take a snake from nature, I feel horrible and suffer from guilt. The funny part is the next hog I found was, Yellow, bright yellow. Dang $*($(^%*$*$(%#^^&&& yellow. hahahahahahahahahaha so it had to stay because of my guilt.

My son, who is working with westerns and loving it and yes, hes afraid of being bitten. hahahahahahaha yells at me for leaving some very interesting individual hogs. Like the white ones with reddish blotches.

Again Thank you and please respond to those posts, when no one responds I tend to not post more.

I mentioned earlier that the hogs on my site are rarely scared, this one was, it had two holes that had healed over, one that broke several ribs. That is the second one like that. now all I have to do is figure out what did it. best wishes
