New Dress Use: Snake Sack

It’s heating up in the desert which makes for some active evening critters.   I live on the fringe of Tucson in an area that is still mostly desert so I have frequent encounters with things I prefer not be in my yard – mostly because I have kids.

I like most reptiles so I like finding the occasional gopher snake or gila monster and escorting them home.  Rattlesnakes are another story and fortunately I have only had to relocate two of them in the almost 11 years I have lived here.

Oddly enough I haven’t come across a singe reptile in my yard since I started coming up with creative uses for my ex-wife’s wedding dress last year.  I think they are aware that I possess the largest most versatile snake sack of all time.  So this is sort of a “what if” dress application.  I demonstrate how to pull this one off with a fierce stunt cobra.

Here are also a few random shots of things I find in my yard along with a picture of my buddy Noah’s foot.  This picture reminds me to be careful when walking around outside at night.  This is what an adult diamondback rattler can do to you.  I believe they gave him 44 doses of anti-venom.

This isn’t the first snake I have seen in my ex-wife’s wedding dress (. . . . I did a previous shoot with a rubber one)

    • A follow up to my previous comment. How about setting it up as another scarecrow to do a “then and now” comparison with the original? Cheers, LG.

    • Hi. I’ve seen that you did a “dress assessment’ vid. How about a couple of good pics showing the front and back of the dress at present?

      Who’d have thought that wedding dresses could be so tough?

      Cheers, LG.

      Venomous reptiles asides, it’s pretty bad ass you get to see those cats up close.
