My hunting story goes something like this, I threw a mouse into an outside enclosure where my male coachwhip was basking. He was at the bottom of his 6 foot high enclosure. The mouse was placed on a branch about mid-way in the cage. He went to the top of the cage and looked down studying the mouse then he went back down to the very bottom again and studied the mouse for a minute or two before deciding to stalk the mouse from a blind spot. The snake would inch forward in the blind spot and when the mouse would move he would freeze until the mouse looked away before continuing his pursuit. This whole process went on for about seven minutes until he was within three inches and wham precision strike just behind the neck compressing the chest cavity with his jaws. Since he was captive born I have been allowed a peek into a world seldom seen. I happen to be looking for easterns this week in Texas. Found a Copperhead under a tin at 98F Degrees but no cochies so far.
