Girls Camp Snake

A little, probably 10 or 11 year old boy and one of my girls caught this rather large gardner snake. I believe it's a Bull Snake? Or something like that?

Well, we had to take pictures.

3 of my Young Women girls
This is the one who helped the boy catch the snake.I couldn't wait for Jaren to see this picture. As I am horrified of spiders, he is even more scared of snakes. I wasn't dissapointed. Squirming away from the camera and then yelling ensued. "What were you thinking?! HOLDING the snake?!?! And your pregnant!!!! No!!" :) I'm not scared. Well, unless they bite or are poisoness.
The second I grabbed him he wrapped around my arm rather tightly.... I think he was a bit annoyed. He had been passed around about 4 times before this. Needless to say, I was the last one that held him.

I laugh in the face of spiders, snakes, mice, you name it. Most things just don't scare me. Although, I do find centipedes, millipedes and earwigs to be disgusting. Not scary. Just disgusting looking.

Doesn't he come into contact with quite a few snakes while working the fields?

I love how your pic almost has the aura of you taunting him with the snake. I bet his reaction was priceless!

I am like you, as long as they are poisonous, or bite, I am fine with snakes.
I LOVE how your hubby was all, "you are pregnant!" I just want to know what that has to do with holding a snake.

I don't mind snakes either, or spiders. But I freak out over ants and worms. Weird, I know...

Kate, Mike and Ellie said...

I'll be honest, I get spooked by snakes, but that's because I'm usually outside working and I pick something up and there they are. I don't mind them if they're already caught and not poisonous.
