I Met A Snake
I'm not the greatest fan of snakes, despite meeting a grass snake or two in the fields during the earlier part of my childhood.
But when I happened upon a reptile display on Saturday and went to have a nose, I bumped into a schoolfriend, Shirley, who was there with her husband and some of their reptiles, including this little slinky friend, who is a Mandarin Rat Snake.
And I was a brave human being...
I was also a cold, tired and windswept human being, but let's ignore that, because I actually held a snake haha
It has really smooth skin, and stayed pretty still and relaxed in my hands.
A bit later I also briefly held a ball python (slightly larger snake!) belonging to another person with the group. I only held it briefly because it wanted to return to its owner!
I should've put 'hold a snake' on my list really, shouldn't I?!
