snakes alive

pondwelr(z5 WI)September 4, 2008

I knew the resident grass snake who lives under my front porch and hides in the vinca patch, was growing. But the other day I found its shed skin in a bed, and upon measuring it, found it to be 32 inches long! I hope he grows large enough to keep down the chipmunk population.

So far, I'm not missing the mice he eats.

Lucky you!

I could use one of those to get rid of the voles. One of my dogs is fairly good at catching them, but a snake would be nice when my dog isn't on patrol.
