Monday Mischief: SNAKE!

Hmmm...What's this?

What did you find?

Snake Skin!.....Back off! I found it first! It's mine!

I'll just take my little prize over here......

And give it a good shaking!
Now.....Do I eat it? Or roll on it?

I'll just mosey over here and enjoy a snack.....
At this point, it was time for me to step in and ruin Jimmy's fun. I was pretty sure he was going to eat it and that was not going to happen! I'm so mean!

This was very likely the skin of a harmless Black Rat snake. They are good as rodent control and helpful to have around. When I see them in my yard, I usually just relocate them to the woods further from my house.


  1. Epic find dudes. My peeps would have ruined my fun too big sigh. Have a great Memorial Day and a marvellous Monday.
    Best wishes Molly

  2. What fun...but hey, I bet there's a lot of protein in that snake skin, mom should have let you eat it for sure. Although it is kind of gross...

  3. Yuck, at least it was just the skin.

  4. Mom has completely lost it now. Harmless or not snakes just freak her out.

  5. Oof. That reminds me of the garter snake that took up residence over the side door to the garage. About 3 weeks ago I went in that door and much to my, and the snakes surprise, he fell onto my head. Have not been really excited about going into the garage since then!

  6. Moms always ruin the fun ;) But snake skin is pretty gross...

  7. Ick! I have a horrible fear thing about snakes... though I never kill the harmless ones.

  8. What a find! Love the commentary :)

  9. Snakes are so yucky ... not a big fan of them. Too bad your Mom took it away and ruined your fun but that's what Moms do ... keep ya safe and healthy!

  10. What a FIND! We've never found a snakeskin...and SHE's very happy. As we've said before, a snake found here is 99.9% poisonous. Looks like it would be fun to play with and ROLL on, though.

  11. So cool!!! A snake skin. What a treat!!!

    I was away from my computer for Wilson's birthday. Happy Birthday Mr. Wilson!!!!

  12. I thought it was a stick when I first saw it, you'd have no competition from me out in the field, sorry you didn't get to enjoy your prize buddy! :)

    I hope you're having a fun day,

    Your pal Snoopy :)

  13. Killjoy!!! Man Moms can be such Debbie Downers...I thinks that looks like hours of fun to me! Your agail...RUN!!!! She can't catch you! RUN!!!!
    Well, it was worth a shot...

  14. Eck! I can't do snakes at all! We had one in the front yard this weekend and it scared the crap out of me! I'm avoiding that area for the rest of the summer.

  15. Ooooh, Baby Fable and Storybook are totally envious! All they have had lately is box turtle, which the human female screamed and screamed when we brought it in the house and put it on the couch!

  16. good find! I actually like snakes, probably because I HATE rats so a rat snake is right up my ally. I think snake skin is very cool but definitely not for eating probably
