"Milking"

Postby Eagle One » Mon September 12, 2016, 7:28 pm

The trivia question for today is: What can be found around Hamlet that can be milked? It's not a cow, goat or any kind of animal or flower. The answer, when answered, must be specific as to what species. Good Luck !!!

Since N.C. carries the name of "Tar Heel State", is the collection of pine sap still practiced? Could that be called "milking the pines"?

Might be Bruce, but that's not what I'm looking for. The answer will be in some type of life form with a brain.

Well, OK. How about milking fish in a hatchery? You know, squeezing female fish that are heavy with roe to forcible extract the eggs for artificial insemination and then allowing the eggs to mature and hatch to be introduced into local streams. And isn't there a state fish hatchery near Hamlet?

I'm well familiar with the Eastern Diamondbacks . But that's not the species I'm looking for. Diamondbacks aren't native to the Hamlet area but there are plenty of the species which I am looking for.

A clue. There are several species of rattlesnakes but only one is prominent around the Hamlet area. And it isn't the Diamondback. Bruce Osborne should certainly know the answer to this one !!!

When I worked on the RR the men in Andrews,SC would cut the rattler off the snakes they killed and hang them on their rear view mirrow :D
