I saw him slither across our yard on Sunday, but he's a quick little bugger! Never thought I'd see him again, but lo and behold he was basking in the sunshine today. Mobee was sniffing him, so of course I panicked and made my brave little pup go inside.
Then I came back outside with my camera. I'm going to feel really silly if this is a poisonous snake..but I don't think he is. Looks like just a tiny garden snake to me. Any guesses?
*update - I've found that this is an Eastern Garter Snake. They are common in Kentucky, even in urban areas, and harmless (although they may bite if scared or picked up - no worries there, cause that won't be happening!!!)
He is welcome to stick around - as long as he doesn't get too much bigger!
Now I'm going to be on the internet forever trying to figure out what he is.
'til next time... ♥
because it's NOT cute! I am SOOOooooo impressed that you could go back outside and take pictures!ReplyDelete
I couldn't live anywhere there was the faintest possibility that there might be a snake. (please don't anyone remind me we have tiny grass snakes in Blighty!)
Full respect to you my friend
A video of you chasing that snake around in the yard with a camera would have been hilarious!ReplyDelete
