Yikes! Goosebumbs all over..
OMG..... I'd shit myself if I saw that. And you stood there and took a pic? What type was it and are they dangerous?
That's spooky, prkl. I swear, my fisrt thought was "YIKES!" I'm no a big fan o the snakes.Are they common on Van I, Ms TB?
lol... scaredy cats! :-PIt's just a wee garter snake! They're very common and very harmless. I took several pics and I gave it a little tickle to get it off the walking path but that's as far as it wanted to go. I won't post my big slug photos then... ya wussies. ;-)
I like what can be made from poppies.
Wee?..... that thing's about three feet long! Feck that! ;-)
you're a mean, mean woman. That does wonders for my snake phobia. It won't be sweet dreams tonight.
Oh shit, sorry Mog. :-/
Glad you identified it as a garter snake. Snakes of all types just creep me out! I think I would have run the other way!
As with many things, size is not important in the snake world. Some of the most venomous slitherers are quite wee and skinny and many of the big fat ones are totally harmless. Apparently. I don't trust any of them. Garter shmarter. Yeeeeuuuch!
That is true, Naldo but snakes shmnakes! On this chunk of rock, I'm far more concerned about cougars, bears and yuppies. ;-)
