These are good harmless snakes even though there is a six foot bull snake that will get your attention real fast.
The biggest snakes I have ever seen in person outside of a museum are Bull snakes. We had those at the farm and they terrorized the chicken coop, you always looked for snakes before reaching for eggs. When granddad would kill one he would hang them over the barbed wire fence and many times they would touch the ground on both sides of the fence.

Yes I have seen them that long. I had a place in Kent county, Texas that I would see what was referred to as a green racer snake. That was longer than any bull snake I have ever seen and they moved extremely fast. The wild life in that area was a lot different than where I live. There were tree lizards, cougars, black panthers, baggers and deer was very plentiful. Kent county is one of the least populated counties in Texas. Only 2 populated towns only 763 residents.

This is Just the list of Victory's. I have also rode and owned Honda's, Kawasaki's, Suzuki's, Harley's. Some old European bike. Can't remember the name. It was a 3 speed and I started riding on a 50cc bike that Sears sold. Some time around 1967. I have had my motorcycle license since 1969.

Saw a green racer in Crockett county several years ago at the old deer lease. It scared the crap out me and neither me or the snake stuck around long enough for me to gauge the length.
