    A little grass snake will eat the bugs and slugs that infest your garden, Janis… write him a thank you note!

    Just slitherin’ around out in the yard all day and night, Janis, just waiting to crawl up your leg when you least expect it………

    Good or bad, snakes have always been revered…

    Heh. Fifteen years ago, shortly after i met my current wife and her daughter (who was fourteen at the time), i picked up Helen (step-daughter) and went to meet Kate at some friends’ place.
    .
    When i parked, Helen was about to get out, and she said “Oh, look – there’s ivy instead of grass here between the curb and the sidewalk.”
    .
    And i said (without thinking, but Helen didn’t believe me) “That’s okay – there probably aren’t any snakes in it.”
    .
    Just the other day, Helen brought that back up and informed that she still hasn’t forgiven me.

    I can’t believe Janis wants to kill a harmless little snake … she’s usually soft-hearted about creatures.


    Why not have Arlo carry it off to a field or even a less manicured part of the yard, if there is one?

    15 years is a long time.

    about 13 years ago my daughter was cleaning out a flower bed started yelling about a snake. I know I had seen a small grass snake a few days before so I told her to leave it alone, and went to move it. I looked and didn’t see the snake so I asked her where the snake was, she pointed to the dirt at the edge of the bed and all I saw was an Earth Worm……I remind her of that at least once a year, every year. lmao.

    The other day I was riding down a country road and saw something glistening in the morning sun in the road. It was a big garter snake. I caught it and released it where it would be less likely to be sunning in such a dangerous location.

    Once saw a “breeding ball” of Garter Snakes…very interesting.
    .
    (Okay….truth be told…..I was actually looking for my errant tee shot on a par 3 hole when we saw the snakes…yes, if you golf with me you generally go on the equivalent of a “nature walk” by the end of the round!)

    You mean there is a different way to play golf? My nature walks are always spoiled by my golf game.

    On a list of snakes found in Florida there are 122 different snakes with some having several variations.

    I am a Florida native having lived in the state all of my life with the exception of the 7 years I served in the US Army in various spots around the world.

    Even as a child walking the swaps and pine forests while hunting and fishing for table fare, I have only encountered a few of them. Only one being aggressive (water moccasin) the rest retiring from the confrontation quickly.

    As with most creatures, snakes play an important role in the system. Not like humans who seem to only know how to destroy their environment.
