An Interesting Tidbit about Black Snakes

01 Dec

Some of you may have heard from an elder “Don’t kill Black Snakes”. You may have thought, oh it’s an old wives tale or that’s just one of those strange sayings that only make sense to people over 70. Well no matter where it originated or what the purpose is…. this may answer your questions and concerns.

The fact is that Black Snakes kill poisonous snakes. Don’t believe it? Check out these photos that Bill captured last summer. He says the rattlesnake was still rattling his tail all the way down. This snake is a Texas Indigo Snake and among the many things it consumes, rattlesnakes are one.

Guess granny knew what she was talkin bout!
