Description

This snake was about 2 inches thick at the mid-section. I could not get it to move away. I struck the ground nearby, prodded it 3 times. Each time I prodded it, it whipped around and partially coiled and prepared to strike. Maybe it was guarding a nest in the big log between it and me.
