SNAKE!

I have always been.....
and will always be....
fearful of snakes!!

This morning, my hubby showed me something
that I have not seen before.


This is on the bank just above our carport.
I had never seen this before and was so
amazed at the sight!
He said it is snake poop!
Well, I don't know....
I looked online and couldn't
find anything like that....
do any of you know?

I know we have snakes around
because he has seen a couple already.
Now, I am so fearful when I am outside.
I am fearful that our dogs may come
upon one of them and get bitten.

I just wanted to share that "poop" with you
because I haven't seen any before.
Have you?

Can't say that I have.
I worked in a pet store for a short time and I'm sure I did see it, but don't remember what it looks like.
Don't be too afraid to go outside. The snakes are more afraid of you than you are of them.
I just stay out of their way and watch them slither on by. Well, unless it's a poisonous snake, then I try to kill it.

Hi Shirley, This is so cool I never thought I would say that over poop! lol. I have been around snakes all my life and have never seen what their poop looked like, now If I see this I will know they are around. I usually see a shed snake skin and that always makes me scared. Very interesting. So glad you posted.
Hugs,
Sue

Geepers...that's nasty. I guess a snake would have to poop like every thing else. :-/

I seriously think your husband is playing a trick on you and LHAO about it. I not kidding. I think it looks more like dog or cat vomit. I don't mean to be gross, but I'm serious when I say that. I think you should call your husbands bluff and play along with his trick and say somethngn like the conservation department is coming to your house to do a live interview on tv about snakes and they saw on your blog the snake poop. I play trinks on my hubbyb all tghe time when i think he is pulling myb leg. I bet he is pulling yours. gonna do some googleing of this and see. he might be joking us all. Let us know please.

Thanks for the post! We have the same stuff on our lawn and a neighbor said it was snake poop, which is how I found your blog. I think ~K~ has the answer with slime mold. I'm so glad to know what it is!
