    Rolled over a copperhead today on the fatty

    Rode a couple laps at sww on the south side of indy this afternoon with my wife. First lap, most of the way around where you get to the long wide pathway section. Thought it was a stick until my front tire was over, realized it was a snake. Walked back to make sure it was ok...it was a copperhead, coiled up and really ticked off.should have got a pic but didn't. Be careful!

    Cool story bro! ;-p

    Since this tread is grossly missing a photo of a snake, j/k, here is what stopped me on the trail today. Never cross a hungry Cow and Calf Moose!!!

    I'm with you on this one.
    Here in the Netherlands we also have the adder to be aware of, but that's mainly in the east of the country.
    But last week i was visiting some friends, when a guy showed up carrying this :
    (I thought i was a nice photo oppurtunity)
