Finally upgraded from my tiny hook to a midwest collapsible hook. So excited! It feels really sturdy (of course in comparison to my tiny hook) and I love that it’s collapsible since I take my hook with me everywhere (just in case). So now I have a good pair of tongs and a legit snake hook! So ready to be out and about field herping. Hopefully my busy school schedule allows so I can go way beyond the creek at my school and the other smaller parts of Austin. Been rereading alot of my guides and studies and have my computer set up to document my findings and their behaviors! 🤗 .
Really wishing I could camp at Big Bend. I’m sure the snakes would be EVERYWHERE!
ALSO, I did use my rattlesnake statue to show off the hook but I will NOT be intentionally looking for the real deal. I feel I’d be way over my head with those heavy hitters. I’d like to keep all of my fingers, thank you. Maybe one day if I’m trained, I guess. 😅 But would still more than LOVE to see one out in the wild. .
