Scary Snake

Desert Botanical Garden 5

We saw this just beside a trail at the Desert Botanical Garden. I don't run away screaming from snakes (with the possible exception of a deadly pit viper) but I keep my distance. Locals told me that this was a king snake and not poisonous. Not for me to do any tests.

Below, the raison d'ĂȘtre for all of this.

Snakes are fun as log as they don't try to kill you.

I think I've seen the same snake. The sign I missed. :-)

I agree with you about the wisdom of staying away from snakes, poisonous or not.

But I did linger long enough to get a photo of a pit viper on the Caribbean coast of Costa Rica.

I just cannot like snakes. I much prefer your second photo.
