tx_snakewrangler Now I know why she was smiling..she knew she would get a chance to bite me later! Even the yellow bellied racer didn't bite in the cool temps experienced yesterday. That's how "nice" blotched water snakes can be. #nerodia #nerodiaerythrogaster #watersnake #yellowbelly #yellowbelliedwatersnake #blotchedwatersnake #nonvenomous #tongueshot #herping #fieldherping #snakehunting #colubrid #notacottonmouth 2d

tx_snakewrangler Harmless blotched water snake bite on the inside of the hand. It didn't hurt at first, it just bled a lot, but now I feel like I have a paper cut at the joint of my hand and finger. Not fun! #snakebite #nonvenomous #herplife #thestruggleisreal #herping #fieldherping #nerodia #watersnake #herptastic 2d
  •   awalla26 Ouch :/ keep it medicated ;) 2d
  •   country__girl10 Stupid that's what u get for holding snakes 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler Lol I'd like to see a picture of that @jaredthewaynewhite ! 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler @awalla26 I even carry around hand sanitizer, which gave me a nice burn immediately. Lol and my PA wife always jumps to the worst conclusion, so I get plenty of medical attention. :) 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler @country__girl10 LOL what's funny is she was calm while I held her, but when I sat her down she tagged me, like an after thought for having held her so long. 2d
  •   country__girl10 Well that's why I don't hold snakes I take off running I see a damn snake I hate them because I almost got bit thousands of times 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler "Almost" should tell you something! Lol I found 8 copperheads yesterday and messed with all of them (using snake tongs) and only one even opened its mouth. Of course what snake could resist my snake whispering? @country__girl10 2d
  •   country__girl10 Lol do u mess rattle snakes I have came close to getting bit by one and some copperheads 2d

tx_snakewrangler Smile, beautiful! Blotched water snake from today, nerodia erythrogaster transversa. I guess now considered the same as the aptly named yellow-bellied water snake after taxonomic changes. It was in the 60s so I didn't get bitten...until I warmed her up a bit. #watersnake #nerodia #nerodiaerythrogaster #colubrid #snake #nonvenomous #herping #fieldherping #herptastic #yellowbelliedwatersnake #yellowbelly #snakesofinstagram #snakehunting 2d
  •   cody__brand This photo makes me miss the Midwest 2d
  •   viralography Nice! I figured the snakes will start being out more, now that the weather is cooler. Looking forward herping this week. 2d
  •   plaxton53 Nice! 2d
  •   andres_images This is a nice photo! 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler Thanks @plaxton53 @jacobtmnt @viralography ! I found it on the crawl, so maybe they've received the signal that it's time to move again. I'll keep an eye on your upcoming catches 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler Thanks @andres_images , I don't know what I'm doing (especially compared to you) but I'll accept your compliment that something was done right! 2d
  •   jacobtmnt Sweet! 2d
  •   andres_images You did very well for real! What I like most is the composition. I think you have a good eye for photography. I'm an amateur just like you. The only difference is that I have a little more practice. Keep shooting your snakes you'll get better in every new photo. 2d

  •   tx_snakewrangler Lol yeah @jacobtmnt you're exactly right! How did you know? It helped me a lot today with the 8 copperheads we found 2d
  •   tx_snakewrangler Thanks @joseph_stout20 I'm glad someone appreciates my nerdy tendencies! I memorized most of them as a kid and they stuck with me all of these years. I rarely need reminders! Thanks for the compliment. 2d
  •   joseph_stout20 lol welcome 2d
  •   jacobtmnt I buy from her too that's where I got my tongs @tx_snakewrangler 2d

  •   jacobtmnt Same here i broke my first set on accident i came across a blotched watersnake in a shallow stream water stirred up and got muddy then i set my tongs down the water was deep enough to submerge my tongs in water and then went to flip the rock and boom crushed them...they still worked but later they just broke in half this summer so i went and got more lol (sorry for the long story haha) 2d

bingefreebeauty And yes that's a spider lol! Great lesson today. I didn't eat "perfectly" because I basically didn't sleep last night and had a huge breakfast cuz I was legit hungry, then spent all day worrying if I consumed too many cals. Really no energy to do a workout either, so this is when the, "You'll never amount to anything" dialogue creeps in. But after navigating A LOT of stress at work today like a G, I reminded myself the goal is not to deprive or over-indulge... The goal is not to binge, and to love myself! So no workout today (two days off now ) and a good-sized dinner AND I'm headed to my first therapy session ever over Skype at--wait for it-- a dessert cafe lol! But I'm not in the mood to binge, I AM however in the mood for sleep so I can "get back on track" tomorrow.. But I put this in quotes because I never really "fell off." This moralizing and de-moralizing foods bullshit is too exhausting for me, I'm becoming too balanced to see it as black and white anymore. I'm stronger than I was yesterday, can't wait to wake up and do a KICK ASS workout, and by the way if this is my last post-rant ever I'm experiencing my first TYPHOON outside and it's wild! #bewild #befree #bewildabouthealth #bebingefreeb #typhoon #malaysia #abandonment #perfectionism #deepthoughts #therapy #stress #progress #followgram #backbend #yoga #open #bringit #mothernature 5d
