Brown stuff by the gallons / litres will be released.

had to look twice, once to see how fat the snake is, and a second look to see the extra length curl up in the branches apart from the main bulk. Dat snake is a hunter and eating bird, bat and monkey in the forest trees.

Boy if i encounter that in real life is serious fight or flight response with screaming, running, rolling and sheiting until out of range. PTSD whenever i see a tree.

For something as large as that snake, or say a tiger, any predator animal large enough to strangle us... the real response would be paralysed with fear so you don't feel anything as you enter the death phase. If you can recover from that phase, you would flee.

The mammalian brain just activates a primordial response to dump a lot of neurotransmitters and hormones to give a peaceful hallucinogenic feeling that heaven exists. I read that a lot of cases of a violent death, people sheit themselves because of the uncontrollable surge of these biochemicals. Plenty accounts from soldiers and prisoners who sheit themselves during a fight. Similar if it's a violent car crash victim.

Boas are thriving well,they're everywhere and all seem to be big specimens.. a few years ago it was rare to see such big boas on the fringes ,most were arm size,seems like Trinis are a bit more open minded toward snakes these days and prey is in abundance.

Big one like that frequented a tree right outside my yard in an empty lot bounding the mountain and fed on agoutis squirrels and iguanas,a few mins from POS...you could smell when he was around..

Still small compared to big anacondas though..but some impressive ones around .

I honestly dont get why people so scared of snakes- I cant think of anyone I know personally that has ever been killed or even wounded (without looking for it) from one yet. It would be interesting to know how many people here know anyone personally (not tany ex-cousin thing) that has deads or been wounded by a snake. Other than 88, I doubt there are many.

Evolutionary instinct called "innate fear." Most people have never encountered dangerous animals and insects personally, but most humans are aware of fear of them. That fear is preserved in our genetic memory. Our distant ancestors who could detect snakes and other dangerous creatures in the grasslands better were the ones who survived and passed on those genes.

Some people have innate fears and disgust of mice. Spiders. Heights. Insects. Frogs. Trypophobic disgust. Mosquitoes buzzing. The sound of someone vomiting. The smells of faeces. All these are evolutionary instincts to preserve life because of their association with disease and death. The fear of death created the formula for religions and the afterlife.

These are just autonomic responses that don't need to be learned. That is why people are afraid of snakes without ever encountering one. Fear and the autonomic response is what makes life survive.

Came across three rat snakes in the space of a month entering my yard. All were about a foot long. That was my first, second and third time encountering snakes personally and all got the same reaction and end treatment. I living here two years and they jus showed up. I dont see any rats only frogs.

I had a fair share of dealing with bush snakes in the forest.

At night they most active, normaly the rainbow tree boa are slow and harmless. You see loads on them deep in the forest.

Matchet and tegreys are harmless but these will run you down to snap at you . They appear to be viscous , they will take one jab at you and then run.

I had strikes from these snakes before on by boots. Very scary moments.

Met two bushmasters on my parth and had to run them off. These were like 4 ft.

Hunting at night is very scary

Rat snakes like mice outside by our garbage bin area,they just duck when they see you,they dont really run,you can see 4 to 10 around the drums at any given time after dark..Glencoe..

We leave snakes be,just catch and release interesting ones and take note of the species .there's a bank right opposite the garbage area that always has baby macajuels and some fat rainbow boas,the rainbows are very aggressive they hiss and strike like the real thing..

Caught many corals and false corals in the past,the false corals with the red head are really cool snakes they dont even strike and like to wrap around your hand and fingers,they'll make good pets...we just put them back and keep observing them and they always in the same spots,they're not afraid of us..

Snakes are cool.

Has a glenco resident that like snakes, keeps some rubber ones around.

I know one guy that is afraid of them. He was relaxing by the pool so we put the snake on the chair.

I find the opposite- rainbow boas can be real arseholes when they want, and thats most of the time.

One of my good pals is a forest ranger so I kinda learned this stuff from him. He gave good tips in dealing with forest Animals.

Both of you guys are correct in a sense, they're a great docile snake when they're younger. Their attitude comes out when they grow up.
Snakes are fine, any constrictor i'm good around. I'll keep my distance from the venomous guys, they don't want friends either, they do their thing and i'll do mine lol.

I guess everyone have thier experiences with different species as I find cascabel to be mostly docile and easy enough to handle even when they not happy big or small- regular boas ive never issues with- its just the rainbows, they have proper smallman syndrome and thier teeth so thin it hurts more taking them off when they bite than when they actually bite.

Venoumous ones- I dont play up, I just let them carry on doing what they doing and we good.
