Great shot.

Yep, if you want snakes on your land, do NOT keep guineas. They'll wipe 'em out.

glad you shared, i was thinking that having guineas might not be a terrible idea... but i love snakes and theyre rare enough around the cheyenne area so now they (guinea fowl) are an immediate no go lol

Yeah, I was considering guineas, too, but I have king snakes that also eat other snakes. Brings up a good point of just where is balance?

As much as I am NOT fond of rattlesnakes, I'm feeling a tad sorry for that one.
