That's a big one. I treat all snakes as if they were poisonous...I hate snakes!!
I generally do the same, but this was kinda neat to see.
I've got an Assault paddle for that guy if he gets too close.
Agreed. He was kinda preoccupied with his lunch. In fact he first parked on the best shore line, where I typically put my kayak in at. As I approached him to get the pictures, he turned back into the water and hauled further down the shore.
I can't wait for winter when all the snakes die off
