Many of you know that our Mom is an Aussie (from Australia) even though she lives here in the USA now. Many of you may also know that Australia is famous for having the deadliest snakes in the world and if you watch the wild life shows - it makes it seem like they everywhere in Australia. Well our Mom lived most of her life in South Australia's mid north - which is pretty much the desert and prime snake area according to the TV shows - the problem is - in all her years of living there and roaming through the sandhills and bush as a kid - Mom has only ever seen two snakes. Sure you can 'find' them if you go deliberately looking for them but most of the time the snakes sense when something is coming and stay out of the way. So Mom thinks it is kind of funny that she has seen more snakes here in the USA then she ever did back home in Australia. Point being made - look what we saw swimming in MY lake yesterday - yep - a snake. (And no it wasn't a stick - it was definitely a snake and moving fast) It was about 3 foot long (thankfully about 20 feet away from us) but a snake never the less. And look what he was heading for - smorgasbord on a log! We doubt very much the snakes eat the turtles but Mom thought it was funny anyway. We wondered how many more turtles could squeeze themselves onto that log?
