Snake Bites & Stinks

Usually garter snakes don’t bite, but this one bit both Maret and Toveli.  
We went down to the park to go snake hunting, and just found this fella
minutes before Mom said it was time to head home.  And Mr Snake wasn’t
happy that he was nabbed.  Seems he had some crushed ribs, or whatever
you would call his bones an inch or so below his head.  Maybe he was freshly
wounded, I don’t know.  Maybe he
was in pain still, or he was apprehensive of another crushing blow.  But he most certainly
wasn’t happy to be handled.  So 5 minutes later he was put down, released
back where he had been discovered, and we headed home, hands with distinctive snake smell.
