snakes!!

pagan(8b)February 5, 2007

Moved a walkway stone the other day and found a scarlet and black snake curled up under it! I am glad I was wearing gloves! The little devil must have been hibernating cus he never moved... scared the demons out of me! I tried to identify him and the best I could do was some sort of scarlet snake...

Most likely a king snake, they eat mice and other snakes.

he was small, with red and black bands on his back and a creamy colored tummy. Whatever he was, I was one scared pagan! Now I have visions of snakes curled under every stepping stone in my garden!
