SNAKE BITE!

Common Garter Snake
Garter Snake

Roger caught this Common Garter Snake as it was wandering through the yard near the end of our vacation.

Though relatively docile, Garter snake do bite occasionally and this one bit Roger on a finger. Drew blood, even.

Of course, they are neither poisonous nor even dangerous. Infection is about the only risk from their bite.

Roger was quite proud of having received his first snake bite.

We kept the snake for a couple of days before release day. It got out of its container a couple of times and curled up under the cushions of a couch on Mom’s porch. Fun bit of hide and seek trying to find the semi-little bugger!

    I like how you say it was his “first” snake bite, as if you expect more to come. 🙂
