Living List Tick – Hold a Snake


  1. Great photos, hope it was a lot of fun! I have the feeling it was.

    Now I’m pondering where you might have grown up, for I grew up in a Mid North rural town on the coast… And now as I once again live rurally, we deal with the snakes. Yesterday’s sightings: one black one, and one 2.5 metre diamond python. Who hopefully chased the black away.

  2. HUZZAH!

    Glad you sat me with the purdy flowers and not the breast hungry snake.

  3. The beads look nice hanging up like that Karen, it makes me happy to see them there. I like snakes and often go looking for them with the camera but I still have to consciously subdue that primal fear I have of them.
    Next time, I will be there. With bells on.

    You are so brave holding the snake, I was keeping up the back well away from the critters.
