Speaking of Worms . . .

The other day I walked across my patio on my way to the grill when I came across this little critter. Of course, I first thought it was a worm, but when I knelt down to get a better look, I soon realized that this was no worm. In fact, it was a snake . . . a real little, baby snake. It was black and had a triangle head that it held up while spitting it's little tongue at me as I peered down at it. I'm sure he was as scared as I was! He was an interesting little critter.

He soon withered off and was on his merry way. I, too, was soon on my merry way to the grill to start dinner. Pin It

You know what they say about baby snakes - "where there are baby snakes, there are mama snakes."

We found a teeny tiny black baby snake too! Ours was in our garage so we caught him and put him outside.
