Snake In The Grass

Look what came trick-or-treating today! This guy is about five feet long and was right inside my dog's playpen. My dogs ran right at it and it reared up with its mouth open ready to strike. Thank goodness my neighbor spotted it and shooed Ralph & Alice away. What a Halloween scare!

After a little research we now know it was a water moccasin, also known as a cotton mouth. They are venomous. He eventually slithered back into the nature preserve behind our house. I think we caught a break today.
