hairy snakes?

sharing a patch of sunlight

Snake scales are made of the same material as hair and nails and are cool and dry to touch.

      Aw these little ones are so tame. He popped his head up through the leaves while I was on a bit of a break from landscaping. (: It was terrified (and toothless) xoxo

  3. Great photo. They’re fascinating creatures. Looking at that eye it’s not hard to fathom why the snake got to play the role of the bad guy in Genesis.

      This snake would definitely say it doesn’t like people much too!
