Serves me right. I laughed and joked about slithery invaders in my yard a couple months ago. Ha Ha Ha, I had snakes in a tree. SOoooo funny.
I ended up taking my girls down the street and played “damsel in distress” to one of our neighbors who came and rescued me. Yeah, I’ll admit, I’m not brave when it comes to a potential rattler.
At the end of the day, it was a 4-foot long snake that did vibrate it’s tail – without noise – and did strike at the shovel A LOT. After more Internet research, we think it was a rat snake trying to trick us. *whew*
It’s long gone and definitely won’t be coming back, but in the meantime we’ve had some more slithery invaders come on our back porch
…and some of these ones have obviously eaten a full-mouse meal!!! EEK!
🙂 These snakes were made for a birthday party — look at the awesome eyes I found for one of them!
I love the mouse meal. I think my next ones will also have some bells put in their tails to be true rattlesnakes. I think these will continue to be a fun birthday gift.
