That's different! I've never seen a snake 'in the wild' so to speak, do they move very fast?

Used to be quite common here magpuss but very rare you see one now slippery and fast and a bite that could be nasty one of them had my dog on the nose years ago she was in the vets for over a week on antibiotics xx

Oooo that does sound painful, probably expensive too - poor pooch.

Goodness. I wouldn't have expected that. We had a bull blocking our way on a walk yesterday. Guess what? We didn't walk passed it! Huge beast! It had got out of a field and it was snorting and raising its head!

My primal fear of snakes is very strong, I hate snakes or things that look like them, like eels and slow worms.

We have grass snakes here , they are often in the garden and in the river.

One did make me jump last year .... It was curled up on top of large Doris pink plant , it saw me long before I saw it ......it's shot across the landing stage and into the water before I could even manage a squeeeeeek .
