Reptilian Guest


While cleaning up some debris from last year's construction project, I uncovered a nice-sized garter snake. Fortunately, my daughter was here to take a look at it, too. He was very nervous and struck a couple of times. I would be scared too. After retrieving a woolly bear caterpillar to look at, we covered him back up and I'll let him enjoy the debris pile for the summer. He was so lovable.

Beautiful snake...I have one living under my camper, what amazes me is that people want to kill them on first instinct I on the other hand prefer the free rodent and bug repellent..love the site by the way.
