Garter snake new hampshire Anura Guruge


On the road, by our mailbox.

Not very big. But, BIG ENOUGH! SMILE. Though I come from King Cobra country I don’t like snakes — maybe because I grew up with poisonous snakes all around.

I tried to move this one along … to the other side of the road. Then I saw that it had been run over. [Not by I. Honest.] You can see the blood in the picture. They blend into the road. So, you can’t see them.

Well, one less snake to worry about.

Yes, it is a common or garden Garter — and not one of the Timber Rattlers we are supposed to have on THIS ROAD! I just don’t seem to be able to get away from snakes. Maybe I should move to Ireland.
