Snakes "having relations".

"I walked out onto the porch and there were snakes having relations!" Perry's mom recently exclaimed from Texas...

Fortunately she had a camera nearby and we now know what snake intimacy looks like.


Looks kinda fun, doesn't it??


So is this the comfortable but not so risky snake equivalent of "missionary position?" or are they constantly jockeying for position: "I'm on top and you're on the bottom!" "Not now! I'm the top and you're the bottom" and the winding goes on and on...


Naughty snakes. Looks too complicated. Which one's the Daddy and which one's the Mommy?

Obviously they just "tied the knot!"

Very cool photo. Garden snakes make great pets. They will eat live goldfish. I love spring.

I know i'm ignorant, but I don't care what anybody sez snakes don't make great pets.

Dogs and cats (maybe a ferret and i hear pigs are loving) make great pets, snakes make good belts.

Birds, Snakes, turtles, fish, rocks, lizards, hamsters, guinea pigs and their elk are nice to look at. Glorified wall paper that don't benefit from being domesticated (rock excluded), and as such, its cruel to put them in cages.

I think this looks ... romantic.

It is very interesting to watch the ritual of mating of the Garden Snake, but the Western Rattle Snake is almost hypnotic to watch, like a dance of death.

And I have to think that there's a LOT of motion there...
