Snakes are out!

We JUST received a page from a young man in Santa Cruz who thought he might have had a rattlesnake sunning on his front porch earlier in the day. We had him send the pictures he took. 

Check it out - a beautiful little gopher snake! See the shape of the head - like a sausage? And, the round pupils? And, the tail - it comes to a point?

Baby rattlesnakes have a button that, i think, resembles a translucent kernel of corn.

Time for the Badger Song!!!!
