Notes

This is possibly the most feisty, ornery snake I have ever encountered. Instead of simply biting and releasing, or biting and tearing, she bites and chews until you let go. And it doesn't stop, it doesn't matter how long you've been holding her, she's still fighting. So, she's pretty cool in my book. I bagged her and am taking her to someone that can use her for educational purposes. If it does not work out, she will be returned to where she was found.
Herp stamp and hunting license for bagging are current.

Went back to take photos of her today (5-16-12) and she is still biting every chance possible, and drew significant amounts of blood.
