our new pet


Matt and Jake caught this in our back yard. I came home and the snake was in a bucket in the garage with a piece of glass on it topped with a paint can. I don't like snakes due to picking up a rattle snake in grade school. I didn't want anything to do with this snake. Matt really wanted to keep it as our pet. He went around searching for things to feed it. We found out it doesn't eat spiders. I made him let it go. Don't worry it wasn't poisonous, it was a Black Razor. Jake gave it the name Darky or something like it.

sounds like the what happened at the Green house. Glad to hear it wasn't poisonous, it looks intimidating!

Julie, I think that snake's awesome! Although I definately would not want it as a pet! to answer your questions on our blog,no, my birthday wasn't recently, it's not till November! And rolly pollies don't cause garden problems, I don't know about ants, I have them in my garden but they don't seem to do anything bad. Anyway, I love reading your blog! It's so fun to see what you guys are up to! We're going to Utah on June 23rd for a week- you should make a visit to your fam the same week, then we could see you guys!!!

Yuck! Yuck! Yuck! I hate snakes! And I never knew you picked up a rattle snake!!?? You'll have to tell me about that one day.
When I got back from Vegas a few weeks ago there was a snake (and a mouse for the snake) in a little plastic cage in my kitchen! About a half hour after I called my husband, his bug friend (ken) came and picked up the snake.
