Snakes Do Not Pose for Pictures
I found this little snake today trying to warm itself in the sun. It's December 2nd and he should be in hibernation. He was very sluggish due to the cold so I picked him up and brought him home
in a styrofoam cup. He certainly enjoyed the warmth of the house because his movements lost the sluggishness and he began to display a certain amount of attitude towards me. I decided to
photograph him as best I could by placing some black fabric in the bathroom sink and turning on all the bathroom lights. Here are the results. Tomorrow will be warmer. I will return him to
where I found him and hope that he has enough snake sense to find a hole somewhere and hibernate through the winter. He is a Texas Rat Snake and can grow to be 6 feet in length.
