The legend of the hoop snake lives on

 

November 7, 2019



While doing family tree research I was working on my mother's side of the family and specifically a grand uncle. I remember him telling me that he was chased by a Hoop snake when he was young. Apparently the Hoop snake was quite common a hundred years ago, even if it's existence is highly questioned today. Now if you don't know what a hoop snake is I will tell you. According to legend it is probably one of the most venomous creatures to ever live, and it would grab it's tail with it's mouth and make a hoop so it could roll after it's prey.

It didn't bite you, it had a stinger on it's tail...
