Snake Hunting

3 Jun

A very minutely sized red-bellied (or Storer’s) snake came home with the girl about a month ago.  It was exchanged for a slightly larger one a week later.  It lived in a white bucket with some grass, a large piece of bark and wood to hide under and the sowbugs and small earthworms which are its food.  She finally had pity on the creature and let it go yesterday in a flower bed after it spent most of the morning shedding its skin.  So it must have been eating.

Then she spent a couple hours hunting for and finding numerous snakes of several kinds and sizes up back.  Maybe I will go with her to document some today.  I am sure one will come home with her.
