Camera Critters

 
Posted by Picasa


I admit this is not the actual critter, but it is close enough for me! I found this right next to my back door, which means the snake is probably lurking nearby enjoying his new bigger skin. To see more critters from around the world, be sure to visit Camera Critters.

That would be a rather unnerving sight. Be careful in the yard.

I'm always taken aback when I see these.

Yikes!! Hopefully he'll find any mice running around!

Whew! That snake has eaten a lot of rats!

I hope he is a friendly snake. What kind would he/she be? Valerie

I believe we would be horrified if we knew how many serpents share the space we work in daily in our yards.

It would un-nerve me a bit but I would also think what a neat thing. I seldom see a snake up here. Not even little Garter sakes. MB

So that is a snakeskin. We have only a few adders in these parts.

ohmigod Lois, it's very impressive. I hope this critter is far away from your place right now! LOL
Cool post, thanks for sharing,

We had one of those hanging on an outside wall a few years ago, then a few days later I found the owner in my office. It took me a while shooing it out the front door.

Aaaaargh! Even just the skin would be too much for me to take!

I don't think I've ever seen a complete shed snake skin before. Usually all I find are pieces. Great Critters photo!

Pretty good Camera Critter entry! I like seeing a little imagination. Glad it's just the skin! ~ks

Wonder if this is the one that was trying to get in your patio door last summer!

Pam said...

That would be close enough for me too, Lois. I'm glad it was only the skin.

Rob and Mandy said...

Aaah... right. Just be careful

We see this only in the countryside here and they are quite dangerous.

Wow! What a find! :-) At first I thought it was a dead snake...
