Conversations with Will

May 21

Texas Garter SnakeWhile walking the dog this morning, Logan and I crossed paths with this snake. Logan screamed and instinctively grabbed Oakley; pulling her way from danger. When I could move again, I snapped this picture for identification.

Will: That is a Texas Garter Snake…actually quite rare to see.

Me: Is it poisonous?

Will: Not at all but if you handled it, they have a foul-smelling musk they will release to fend off predators.

Me: We still faced certain death just so you know.

Will: You did.

Will: “This snake is generally not aggressive and if handled, will flail wildly and release a foul smelling musk.” 

Will: It basically means that when the snake gets scared, it farts; just like Logan.
