Snakes alive!


(bitty baby rat snake -link)

We won't be keeping this beauty for long, they grow to nearly 7 feet long and have nasty tempers. I've already been bitten. Besides, I don't let the kids keep wild animals for more than a week or so. They live better in the wild. We let the frog go today and the baby mouse went Sunday afternoon.

Good morning, Mrs. Doolittle!! You beat all, you know it. I wouldn't be surprised if you had an alligator under your bed. LOL!

Wow, great photo. I used to love snakes but the idea of feeding them live things didn't sit well with me.

A woman after my own heart!

We LOVE to catch critters, keep 'em a few days for observation and then release them. And yes, I've been bitten too!
