An Old Song

Aw, you know...
"I don't like spiders or SNAKES..."

Seems like Spring has sprung
and so have all God's children...

My husband was (again) working outside
and I heard him exclaim an expletive (wasn't that a nice way to word that?!)
I ran out to see what was the matter
and this little thing had jumped out at him.

It might be small but it definitely had an attitude!
Look at the photos, you can see that it pulled back and mustered up all the strength
that it could to attempt a strike.
Now, I knew it wasn't poisonous but I am just terrified of snakes.

Ask my son.
Every time he brought one home, all I wanted to do was get someone to kill it...
Silly, I know.
And he would not stand for that anyway.

Will - lover of all animals.
He even sat bugs outside when we found them inside.

My guess is this is a baby King Snake...
or a Zebra Snake.
Commonly found in upstate SC.

(EDIT- Just kiddin' about the zebra snake...)

Poisonous or not - yucky. I would scream too and then call for my husband to dispose of it and not just move it to another location if you know what I mean.
