You Saw What on Our Front Porch?!?

Mom Paula came home last night a little after dark after running some errands.  When she reached the front porch, she stopped dead in her tracks on the top step!
You saw what on our front porch?!?

This is what "greeted" Mom Paula on our front porch!  It was stretched all the way out facing the front door when she got to the top step.  Mom Paula noticed something dark on the porch and when she glanced over, it moved!  It turned around and went down between the boards on the porch.  We live in a suburban neighborhood and don't see things like this.  We don't know what kind it is and we don't want to get close enough to find out!
Yikes!!!!


Pee ess - Brulee is 10 months old today.

Whoa! My human actually likes snakes, but she has heard that you guys get some nasty, poisonous ones in your part of the country (out here we have rattlers, and they are clearly identifiable). I don't blame your human for being creeped out!

P.S. Happy 10 months, Brulee!

Marg said...

Yikes is right. Our Mom does not like snakes. But sometimes birds will chase snakes. Maybe your little birds will chase it away. Love that pictures of the girls. Happy 10th month Brulee.

Our mom likes snakes, too, but not that one. We hope it isn't a "bad" snake (a poisonous one!). Mom would help try to identify it if the picture was a bit clearer. It looks like it has a lovely skin pattern. She is use to seeing garter snakes and those big black rat snakes that are harmless!

Happy 10 month b-day, Brulee!!!

We don't like snakes. Our woofies chase them in the back yard and that freaks Mom out.

Wow, what a surprise!

Our mom likes snakes cause they eat mousies, which she really doesn't like! It was probably harmless, but its best to be safe.

The easy way in the US to identify poison snakes is the head being larger than the body - like in rattlers, copperheads, water moccasins.

The one exception is a coral snake, which has bright bands.

It looks like a garter snake, more or less.

We had snakes in our old partment. Several of them shorted out the wiring in our oven! Someone in our building owned snakes and they got out. The little ones (!) got caught in our oven (I totally ignored them. Sort of.) and ruined some stuff that was being made for a bake sale. (Thank goodness for kind neighbors who let mom use their oven). The maintenance guy had to remove the poor fried (or should I say baked) yucky things from our oven.
The Python was sunning on our front lawn and had it's picture in the paper!

I join in your snakey repulsion! That is a pretty tiny one, though it is quite long.

Dante actually brought a snake inside the house last year, and dumped it on our family room carpet. When I woke up from a nap, I had a horrible surprise!

It was playing dead because Dante was hovering over it. I had to put it in a contained (without touching it, of course) and let it go outside. Ewwwwww!

I'll bet your girls would love one as a new playtoy, though, but I understand your reluctance.
