HOW WOULD YOU LIKE TO WALK OUTSIDE TO THIS!
I’ve already complained about the number of phone books left at my front door at Insite headquarters. This Tuesday someone left another one. I’m thinking about a restraining order. Anyway, I decided to pick up the phone book while I was putting out the trash Friday morning. When I picked up the book I was shocked to find a snake behind it. It was a small snake that would grow up to be a big snake. I think I heard a hisss and the snakes head raised like he wanted to do me something. Needless to say, instead of panicking I went and grabbed the Iniste camera and a photo. I just knew the snake wanted to take a picture with the Insite. He balked at that and tried to slither away. I won’t tell you what came next but the unwanted guest is now gone!
P.S. A co-worker told me it may be a copperhead…But it appears to actually be a Texas Brown snake:
Texas Brown Snakes are completely harmless if encountered, but will readily feign aggressiveness to defend themselves. This usually involves coiling up, raising the head, striking out repeatedly at anything that gets too close and vibrating the tail. This is just an act to get larger animals to leave them alone, however, since they generally strike with their mouths closed, and their mouths aren’t large enough to grab human skin even if they tried!
