New Orleans Louisiana Snake Situation: I live north of New Orleans, LA on a salt water marsh. We have black racers in the yard and surrounding area. About two weeks ago I was pruning some shrubbery behind a knee high retention wall when I felt a sharp "hit" to the back of my left knee. I did not see what hit me. I continued my work and as the day went on my leg progressively got stiffer and more painful. The area did not bleed or swell and I only had a very small red line behind my knee (about inch long). The pain & stiffness remained for a good 3 days and then got better. I still have some tenderness in the area after 2 weeks. Later on I discovered a black snack and a wasp or hornet nest in the same area that I was hit. I really don't know what got me, but I think if it had been the wasp/hornet then I would have had swelling. Is it possible that the snake gave me a warning hit? If he was hiding in that raised bed, his head would have been at the right height to hit me behind the knee. But then again, I think that I would have seen him if that was the case. I would appreciate any information or thoughts you might have on the subject!

My response: I highly doubt it was a snake. If a venomous snake bites you, the pain is unmistakable. You'd likely have to have your leg amputated at the knee! I think it was something else.
