This is a good reason to Never kill A Black Snake..... I'm posting the 1st picture of the 7 for the rest click on the link below this picture , it is rather graphic of the Black Snake having his lunch. Just a fact of Nature. http://www.ebaumsworld.com/pictures/view/80533791/ Guess that is a good reason to leave them along , plus here in Florida if you kill one and get caught , subtract $500.00 from your checking account. ( personally I think it should be double that amount) Chuck.
