Speckled King Snake

Also called the Salt And Pepper King this highly beficial snake not only eats other snakes it seems to specialize in Copperheads. Interestingly and maybe coincidentally, on the property I caught this one on I have never seen a Copperhead in spite of it being relatively undisturbed and ideal habitat for them. They also eat a lot of mice and rats. It's a pointless shame people would kill such an interesting, harmless and beneficial animal on sight.

A War Story

  • In another life myself and some NCOS were tasked with teaching non combat arms soldiers from other units how to conduct raids and process persons of interest. Although I was not an NCO at the time- I wrote the training plan and also lectured.
  • We were also to be like the out of town gangsters who moved into a shaky area in our territory and straightened things out as we represented- The Boss.
  • For real- we were supposed to impart leadership, general discipline and personal appearance pride.
  • We conducted sessions for two different units (one at our own armory) then we never heard anything else about it.
  • But it did have a kinda Der Kommisar! feel to it while it lasted.
  • A great- great memory was the time we wrapped up a training session early so we left the host unit.  On the way back to our home unit we stopped and played hooky by watching a movie at Sundance Square.
  • We were Texas NG soldiers so there were no shortage of cops and deputies in my unit. A Dallas cop we were with went to jerk his hand out of his jacket pocket to stifle a sneeze in an elevator. When he did so his Beretta .22 fell out and hit the floor. 
  • Years later I heard somebody tell the story except by then- the weapon discharged when it hit the floor and blew a hole in the wall of the elevator.
  • The weirdest thing is I specifically and vividly remember Dallas cop guy who dropped the weapon even telling us at the time (after admitting that dropping it was a stupid 'croot thing to do) about how the construction of that particular pistol made it ultra safe to drop- and so although he shouldn't have dropped it- there was no way it was going to discharge. 
  • One of those guys the last I knew was kinda high on the food chain at Tandy Corp.
  • Another is a hospital administrator in Japan.
  • The third is a really high placed Colonel in intelligence for the division.
  • Fourth guy is/was last I knew a missionary in Honduras or Colombia.
  • Me?! 
  • I'm still just plain ole Kev.
