    That's a new one to me. Good theory though! Unless of coarse it's mating season.

    You got me. I haven't tested it as some have, but I am forced to admit I believed it until listening to you folk.

    I would think that to be a myth, maybe need to submit it to mythbusters. I would think that it would only work if the rope was for some reason warmer or colder than the surrounding air, otherwise I doubt a snake would even know it is there.

    It's not true but sometimes a comforting thought for someone who is afraid and can't sleep.

    Where I grew up, cowboys swore if you put a horse hair rope around your bed roll no snake would cross it because of the stiff hairs protruding from the rope. It is pure myth. As a young man to test this theory, I caught several rattle snakes, dropping them inside a hair rope circle, and they would slither out as quick as you could put them in. My audience was sitting on top of various fence posts laughing their heads off. Obviously, I won the bet.

    haven't you all seen the national geographic shows where they have the "mating balls" of snakes? There have to be 20-30 male snakes attempting to mate with a female and it is one big writhing ball. Gives me the heebes just thinking about it. For this reason, I would think this is nothing but a myth.
