    That could very well have been a rattlesnake Ozzie.
    In Costa Rica there is a widely distributed rattlesnake that is responsible for the death of many coffee bean pickers. The Cascabelle Mura (silent rattlesnake) has rattles but the bones (not proper terminology) that make the sound are fused together and it makes no noise. It stands its ground when disturbed but with no sound, an unsuspecting person has no warning and usually gets bitten.
    When we opened camp one year I encountered one in my cabin. They are amazingly aggressive, he would not back down and you could see his tail moving like crazy. Sharing sleeping quarters with him was NOT an option.
    His 4.5' skin hangs on my den wall.

    those are smooth green snakes.
    With that blurry picture you can't say. Smooth green snakes aren't found in NC. I think ozzy's just playing a trick on us and they're not in the wild but whatever.

    I live in NC and I've seen rough green snakes, and it's more probable it's a rough green snake than a smooth green snake (if it's in the wild)

    gotta agree with you, Alpha. If Ozzy was tramping through the NC woods, he would have found the rough green snake. If those snakes are exhibit/caged (and after looking more closely at the pics, the snakes all appear to be on the same "manmade" substrate, in artificial environments and perhaps the camera flash used to take the pics ??), then they could indeed be smooth green.
    And I still think the very last pic looks more like a boa than anything! LOL
    (but I'm just a dumb old girl who just likes snakes, not an expert)
    At any rate, wild or not, they are good pics; the copperheads are absolutely gorgeous!
    Thanks for sharing, Ozzy

    The "rattle-less' rattle snake looks kind of like a bushmaster to me.
    The top racer looks kind of like a mussarama(sp?) , a snake eater from S. America.
    There is another that looks cobra-like in there.
    I used to live in NC and am fuzzy on my Conant's from back then, but I "thought" both green snakes could be found there, though one was much rarer than the other. I saw a couple when I was a kid-I am thinking both were rough.

    Cheers,

    Joe

    well since several of you have figured Ozzy out ill see what i can do to help things out. the copperhead, eastern and canebreak are all correct

    starting with the green snake:
    green mamba, guessing an eastern but not 100% sure
    black mamba
    taipan?
    cobra, egyptian probably
    next two are some kind of elapid, guessing a cobra but maybe a krait
    bushmaster

    the "rough green snake" on page 2 is a Jamesons mamba

    did i get them correct Ozzy?
