Snake in the Grass

Snake in the Grass

Brad recently found this little guy crawling around in our yard when he was mowing.  He had us all come out to look at it (and, in Samuel’s case, touch it…eeeewwwww), and we stood their like fools trying to remember the little rhyme about red and yellow.

I came inside, Googled it, and behold, I found this: “Remember ‘Red and Yellow kills a fellow, Red and Black is a friend to Jack.’”  I don’t know who Jack is, and I doubt there is a snake alive who is his friend, but since I found it on the Texas A&M Vet website (http://vetmed.tamu.edu/news/pet-talk/venomous-snakes-of-texas), I will treat it as the gospel truth.
