Not exactly sure you know who you are speaking with. First off what non indiginous specie is it that you think I released in my "hill country backyard". To my recolection I have never turned a non native specie loose on my property. I do not live in the hill country. Are you confused? If not, please enlighten me.

Secondly, I will educate you about sexing WDB's. Very few females make it to 5 feet long. Male WDB's will usually have 4 - 5 bands on the tail while females have 2 - 3, and I have never found a female with 4 - 5 bands. Tails are considerably longer and thicker than females. One year at a round up that checks a large amount of the snakes brought in for the TPWD, I visually checked 100 snakes and compared my findings with the people using probes. I was 100% correct while they misidentified several. I showed them how and they tested my observations and proved them right.

Lastly, I am not trying to make myself rightous about this in any way. I am pointing out that all of you that think you are rightous are NOT. You are killing herps, and as I said before at least at the round-ups they chop of their heads in one clean cut. You rightous herpers often allow your captives starve to death, try to keep sick snakes until they die a slow death, and then put them in the garbage. You either make a buck or keep the animals for your own personal kicks. At least the round-up are providing something to a mass number of people.
