Snakes!

Warning: Snake pictures ahead.

We have so many different kinds of snakes around here. Most of them are non-poisonous though they look pretty scary. My children spend most of their days hunting around the property trying to find them.

Today they were rewarded with this beauty. It is a black, rat snake. I'm actually glad we have these around because we also have mice and at times, rats.

All three of them know exactly what to do to get a snake calm. It's amazing to watch them take a snake that is afraid and defensive and within minutes get it to calm down so they can hold it and carry it around. I know.....shudder!
