    Your manhole hook is perfect for catching these and your transmitter bag will carry him just fine if it has a zipper.

    I don't think I'd be trying to catch what looks like a 3-4 foot rattlesnake with a manhole hook. Have you seen that doctor show about the snake doctor? People get bit by these things and DIE. Anti-venom doesn't help in some of those cases.

    Extenstion stick to trap his head, then you can take some electrical tape and tape his mouth closed (Caution for his nose) then he can ride around with you in the passenger seat.

    I found a huge snapping turtle once out in the field. I wanted to paint his shell soooooo bad but in the end I didn't.

    I had a few colors with me. Should have made him a rainbow turtle!!

    Good thing you didn't kill the thing... It's a velvet tail(timber rattler)... It's an Endangered Species,, Game Warden would have had a HayDay with your a**. especially since you were smart and posted your intent to kill it online, and on a forum, and you posted pics of it... Just Sayin! It's a snake either way, the best kind are the Dead ones in my Opinion... Just trying to save you future headaches.. Kewl story and pics anyway

    Sometimes I see those really beautiful red colored newts on the road pavement, sunning themselves after the rain. It's hard not to step on them because they are so small. I don't think they are poisonous though.
