We have seen this snake in our yard many a time, but this is the first time I caught it. My dad was mowing, and he saw the snake lift his head out of the grass. My dad called to us, and I ran out and "caught it just like Steve Irwin", as my brother described it. Before I put the gloves on, he gave me a little bite, but I didn't hold it against him. The last photo show the wound of which I am very proud.

I am having a contest for all the viewers of my blog. The first person to leave a comment under this post identifying both animals correctly will receive a Golden Field Guide of your choice from among the following: Mammals, Rocks and Minerals, Birds, Exotic Plants for House and Garden, Pond Life, or Seashores. I will ship it to you, but within the continental U.S. only. Sorry, I'm just a kid after all.
