There’s an old expression “snake in the grass”. Is there a difference between that and “snake on the AstroTurf”?
with the yellow flowers on your bush it looks like a painting of Mr. van gogh…. Please be careful and run away when you see Mr. Snakie… oh and if you see a running girl… don’t follow her, that’s just my mom :o)
I just checked-I’m like Van Gogh. Where did my ears go?
OMD OMD OMD it THAT a Rattler Snake… We would be TERRIFIED of a Rattling Snake…
a Snake of ANY kind in ANY LOCATION is Still a SNAKE…
No, it isn’t a rattlesnake. It’s a harmless coachwhip snake and good for rodent control.
I wonder how the snake feels about astro-turf. Does it give him a good belly-scratch? Does it feel odd and uncomfortable? Hmmm, we need a snake survey…
I really don’t know the snake language-I probably couldn’t speak it anyway because I don’t have a forked tongue. I’ll never know.
It’s no problem-harmless.
I say a snake is a snake whether on astro-turf or the real thing. “Snake in the astro-turf” may be as popular a saying as “in the grass”!!!!!
It certainly hasn’t been around as long.
We’re glad he is a helpful snake. We have copperheads and this is their time of year. Is that really astro-turf? Ya could have fooled me! Kismet, we find you witty & charming, parts 1 & 2!
Thanks. Yes, it’s artificial-we’re in the Sonoran Desert, after all. How do we keep the turf so green, you ask. We fertilize it with supermarket plastic bags 🙂
I’m not sure, but I’ve met snakes (real ones) that were far nicer than some of the two legged ones.
Have a fabulous day. ☺
We have also.
They both share the fact I want nothing to do with either.
That’s fair enough. Penny might have a different idea.
Maybe that snake was what was upsetting Kali and had her remodeling her space.
That snake is big enough that it couldn’t hide in the run. Kali would have gotten to it easily earlier.
Could this be the culprit who is doing the rearranging in the run??
Aroo to you,
Then the snake would have to have a Kali costume-Kali is definitely the one who did that; she won’t stop if you tell her to stop.
Always carry a flagon of whiskey in case of snakebite ~ that sound about right to me.

And keep refilling it because of “evaporation”.
We hope those ‘snake lessons’ are still working. Snakes….even the thought…make HER shiver.
Those lessons are only about rattlesnakes which supposedly smell different than other snakes. How would I know? I still have postpartum depression.
Scary! Give that joe blake a wide birth!
Only if you’re a rodent.
I’m all for rodent control; can you ship a few to Denver to control the squirrels in my trees?Please note however, we’re not accepting the kind with rattles on their tails. 😉
I’ll put up a sign that this week, squirrel stew is half off there. To keep out the baddies it will say that rattler brownies will be served for dessert. That ought to get you some good snakes.
Mom saw a huge black snake by the air conditioner. She is more neurotic than ever.
You can’t blame a reptile for keeping cool.
Ask the NY Mutts!!
They sent out the Hounds to find a hit. They sent out the terriers to dig up a hit. They sent out poodles to look cute and wheedle hits from passers by on the street. None of that worked.
No…but now your gonna have a Snake in the Bush!
The Mad Scots
Hopefully that means one less rat.
A rose, is a rose, is a rose … I think that goes for snakes too! YIKES!!!
Snakes like roses? Scotties like Goldens.
I just wanna know if it tastes like chikken.
SQUAAAAAAAAAWK. Don’t even go there. We birds need to address those Chick-Full-of-It commercials about eating more “chiken”.
Tastes like chicken.
Either way its yucky!! Not big on snakes!!
They get an undeserved bad rap.
Crikey …… he musta had an itchy tummy, aye?? He’s very attractive. My Mum LOVES snakes. She’s weird!!
She’s not weird as long as it is the right knake.
Mom took one look at that photo and quietly whispered under her breath “oh hell no” – she is NOT a fan of snakes.

Mom may need to “terrier up” because that one is harmless.
Oh my, Kismet…that looks like a big snake. What kind was it? Do you know?
It’s a harmless coachwhip snake. That isn’t a great picture to show off their pretty pink color.
On second thought, as much as I love you and yours, I don’t think I’ll be tawdling over to see y’all any time soon. I’ve never seen a snake and I don’t think I want to.
Its just like peeps. There are good ones and bad ones. However, I’ve never seen a bad dog or a good squirrel.
No. Just no. With maybe an I don’t think so, are you kidding and get me out of here! As for us scotties, we say bring it on!
Braeden, Seth and Riley
Having you guys attack the snake would be like beating an old lady with 2 by 4’s. They’re harmless.
No attacks! Just barkbarkbarkbarkbarkbark! We’re all bark and no bite.
That’s cook-like me, snakes have no ears.
Ohhh my daddy would run from that!!
Do you just wait for it to slither away out of your grounds?
