Looks like about 18 baby snakes.

I'd go stir fry, but it looks like they're already on the griddle.

Holy crap. That just gave me a bad case of the willies. Having encountered a few snakes in my day I have a healthy respect (read fear) of all snakes.

Wow. I didn't realize they had so many at once.

This reminds me of True Grit when the horse shooter from Texas ...

Ya know come to think of it, those would come in very handy when cooking. When a recipe calls for something to be wrapped in bacon and secured with toothpicks...ta da! Built in toothpicks. I don't think they would be salty enough. May have to brine them first.

FTR, I believe in live and let live when possible. Rattlesnakes at least attempt to warn you of their presence while muggers try to avoid detection.

I love that song. Can't help it, I do! Something about the "scarlet billows all around" strikes me as hilarious.

We have eaten them. Neighbor shot one a few years ago and I taught my Dau how to skin it, she was like 9. I have a great pic of her skinning them. They have to be cooked in a deep fry to taste decent. We tried to cook it on the grill, didn't work out so well. But you could certainly eat it if you were in a survival situation without a problem.

A few years ago, I brought home a harmless garter snake I had caught on the golf course. As we already had quite a zoo at our house, we set it up in a large tank and it seemed quite happy living there munching on the worms and feeder fish we provided it.

Sounds like a good place for a hand grenade.

Our 7 foot boa would sit in its cage on our kitchen table(lol) moving every so little unless out on a walk. But if we ever went on vacation leaving my Mom to watch the house. Badda bing badda boom he'd escape promptly. We'd get the Call, "He's not in his cage and I'm not going in there again!!" Luckily he'd always end up under our gas water heater as a giant dust ball.

That's a good girl that can skin a rattlesnake.

I'm assuming that pink goo is placenta?
